New technology, such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality, are changing the heating and air conditioning industry in every way. To keep up, HVAC professionals need to understand how customers are using this new technology to monitor their energy usage and plan equipment maintenance. Here are five technology trends that are impacting HVAC companies.
Wouldn’t it be great to create a smart indoor comfort system that can offer customized energy-efficient performance, minimize compatibility issues with thermostats, and offer many more thermostat choices? Of course.
Enter ComfortBridge™ Technology
Factory-installed into select Goodman brand gas furnaces and air handlers, ComfortBridge™ technology moves the communications that is usually found in the thermostat, securely into the HVAC equipment. The algorithms gather HVAC system performance data and, if necessary, automatically make smart adjustments to help minimize the amount of energy used to cool or heat a home.
