The HVAC trade has a wide array of intelligent products at its fingertips, including thermostats that talk, furnaces that call contractors when there is a problem, and mobile phone applications specifically designed for service techs in the field — to name just a few. Now there is one more intelligent product that can be added to the mix — one that has drawn a lot of looks and which could ultimately lead to new revenue streams for HVAC contractors.
It’s called Nogginhaus. Nogginhaus by definition is “a house that thinks for itself.” It may be easier to call Nogginhaus a living entity rather than just bricks and mortar. The idea of Nogginhaus intrigued two brothers, owners of a New Jersey HVAC contracting business. They became interested in the concept back in the late ‘90s and their curiosity has grown into a new company which is taking thinking homes to a new level.
