Service Nation shares thoughts, strategies for the burgeoning smart home market
With an expected growth rate of 31 percent in 2018, the global smart home market will soon reach total sales of 643.9 million devices, per a recent study by market research company IDC. By 2022, the company estimates as many as 1.3 billion smart devices will have made their way into households. That factors out to one smart home device for every sixth person (babies and children included).
Still, nonconnected homes are projected to outnumber smart homes in 2021 by more than a 2-to-1 margin, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence. In other words, the market is there for those who can get out and make the sales.
Super-Heat is defined as any heat added to a substance beyond its saturation (boiling) temperature. Simple right? Actually, this is usually where people begin to get confused …. after all, doesn’t boiling indicate hot and aren’t we talking about air conditioning?
Let’s face it: getting out the door can be hectic sometimes. Between rushing to beat the traffic, making sure you’re dressed for the weather and running through your to-do list, there’s a lot to juggle—and we could all use a little assistance streamlining our routines.
Google Nest has added a new feature to Nest Secure to do just that: the Google Assistant is available on your Nest Guard, so you can ask it questions like, “Hey Google, do I need an umbrella today?” before you set your alarm and leave the house.*

Nest® Learning Thermostat
Saving energy is a beautiful thing. Meet the 3rd gen Nest Learning Thermostat.
The Nest® Learning Thermostat automatically adapts to lifestyle and seasonal changes.

The temperature can also be adjusted from a phone, so it’ll be cozy upon arrival.
You know that in the HVAC/R
business, it is imperative to make a great
first impression on each prospective customer to beat out the competition and close on everysale.
Yet contractors often put all
their effort on closing the deal by beating out their competitors on price
instead, leading to a lose-lose situation where profit is reduced, and finishing
the job in the professional way customers expect is put at risk.
Consider also the effect that giving customers a paper proposal may have on your ability to close on sales.
