Taco’s SmartPlug is IBS Best Home Technology Finalist

Dec. 15, 2017
According to International Builders’ Show managers, the awards program received 324 entries this year for its Best of IBS awards.

The SmartPlug Instant Hot Water Control by Taco Comfort Solutions is a finalist in the Best Home Technology Product category for the 2018 International Builders’ Show Best of IBS awards. There are nine total categories; one winner will be chosen for each category from among the finalists and one product will be chosen as best-in-show. According to IBS managers, the awards program received 324 entries this year.

The SmartPlug upgrades a hot water recirculation system to a “smart” system by learning hot water usage patterns and delivering hot water when it’s needed. It includes a “pulse” mode option that continuously cycles the circulator on for five minutes, then off for 10 minutes, as well as a “vacation” mode that shuts the circulator off after 36 hours of no hot water use.
