Leviton Smart Load Center Honored as One of the This Old House Top 20 Building Materials of the Year

This year’s TOH Top 20 Building Materials to be revealed in the July/August issue of This Old House magazine

Melville, N.Y., June 20, 2019 – Leviton, the brand most preferred by builders and electrical contractors, is proud to announce that the Leviton Smart Load Center has been selected as one of the This Old House (TOH) Top 20 Building Materials of the Year. Debuting its internet connectivity capabilities earlier this year, the intelligent Load Center continues to garner recognition as one of the industry’s most innovative new smart home products.

Curated by TOH magazine’s editors after months of research, review, testing and input from industry pros, the TOH Top 20 Building Materials of the Year list continues the magazine’s tradition of crowning the freshest, game-changing products of the year for construction and remodeling projects

“We were impressed to see so many innovative building-product launches this year which made winnowing down the field especially challenging,” said Thomas Baker, TOH building technology editor.

In naming the Leviton Smart Load Center to the list, TOH said, “Finally, an electrical panel for the 21st century. It has LED-lit circuit breakers that show you what’s working, what’s tripped, and whether the trip was a ground-fault or an arc-fault. It sends trip alerts to your smart device, and lets you track power usage – and cost – for your whole house or individual circuits. Did you forget to turn off the oven? Use your phone to trip its circuit remotely.”

Launched at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in February, the Leviton Smart Load Center is the industry’s most intelligent circuit breaker system with optional internet connectivity, an all plug-on design for easy installation and safety features that exceed the UL standard. Using the My Leviton app on a smartphone or tablet, the Leviton Smart Load Center offers homeowners unparalleled energy monitoring and management.

The product took home the prestigious honor of being named the Best Home Technology Product in the Best of IBS competition.

“This Old House magazine’s recognition further validates our commitment to ingenuity, quality and safety with our Leviton Load Center product,” said Justin Berghoff, director, business development and product management, Leviton Residential. “Making the future current, as exemplified by the Leviton Smart Load Center, is paramount to the mission of the product development team at Leviton. We look forward to continuing to expand our innovative product offerings consistent with the excellence our customers have come to expect from the Leviton brand.”

The TOH Top 20 Building Materials of the Year list made its debut June 7 on www.thisoldhouse.com and will appear in the July/August issue.
