Bacharach was recognized for excellence in product design in the 16th annual Dealer Design Awards Program, sponsored by Process Cooling’s sister brand, The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News. Bacharach’s Parasense refrigerant management software was the Gold winner in the Contractor Services & Software category.

The Parasense platform integrates with the company’s refrigerant leak detectors, notes Adam Marsh, product manager for Parasense. This "provides users with live data notifications of any leak events … and empowers them to drive down refrigerant emissions with responses carried out as quickly as possible.” The software can help ensure equipment processes remain operational and products within temperature specification, he added.

An independent panel of contractors acted as judges in the contest, which had 79 entries.
