Date: January 10, 2017


PITTSBURGH, PA — Power management company Eaton supplied the automation-rich and aesthetically designed electrical solutions from the service entrance to the wall plate for The New American Home® 2017and The New American Remodeled Home® 2017 located in Orlando, Florida. Through its participation in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) showcase homes, Eaton is demonstrating the solutions advancing home automation in new construction and improving the design and livability of existing homes. 

Both homes will be showcased during the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show® in Orlando, from January 10 to 12. Builders can see and learn more about the Eaton residential solutions incorporated at the showcase homes at Eaton’s booth W3490 at the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show. 

“As home automation technology evolves, residential electrical solutions need to continue to advance safety and connectivity, support quality construction, and manage costs while being less disruptive aesthetically,” said Rachael Elliott, director of marketing, Eaton’s Residential and Wiring Devices Division. “When we started working with the architects and builders for the New American Home 13 years ago, Eaton supplied load centers and breakers that were primarily located in the basement and garage. Today, our residential electrical solutions, including wiring devices, are found throughout the home and provide the freedom to create quality housing that is always on and meets the needs of families across the economic spectrum.” 

The New American Home and The New American Remodeled Home are produced by the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council, of which Eaton is a long-standing member. Since the inception of The New American Home in 1984, Eaton worked with its designers and builders to demonstrate the latest in innovative products in residential construction. 

For this year’s show homes, Eaton supplied the electrical solutions including both circuit protection and wiring devices. Eaton solutions incorporated into the homes include multiple load centers and panels, arc fault / ground fault circuit breakers and receptacles, lighting controls, surge solutions to protect sophisticated electronics, and other digital solutions to support and control home automation.
