They’re trusted advisors to the customers in their care. So when the time comes for their customers to replace those doorbells with their smart home counterparts, shouldn’t HVAC contractors be the “smartest” choice for the job?
Here are 10 things HVAC contractors can do right away to make sure their companies are on track to start reaping the rewards of the burgeoning smart home business.
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 products can help your customers save on energy costs, keep their families safe and stay connected to what’s important. And together, they do even more to create a thoughtful home. In this post, we go into detail about our top 3 best selling Nest products: the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Protect and Nest Hello Video Doorbell.

It gets to know habits, such as turning down the thermostat before bed or up first thing in the morning and starts building a schedule accordingly. The temperature can also be adjusted from a phone, so it’ll be cozy upon arrival.
The old saying “You are what you wear” certainly applies to Simply Comfort, a Toronto-based custom integrator. The company, which has its roots in the heating and air conditioning business, found its apparel made a big impact on its ability to set customers at ease, get their foot in the door, and easily start a sales discussion.
