Not too long ago, today’s consumer expectations for smarter products would have sounded like science fiction. But, as technology is becoming increasingly accessible and interconnected, consumer demand is fueling the rise of intelligent products in the HVAC marketplace.
“Consumers have smart devices, are connected 24/7, and have come to expect getting their information not only in real time, but also remotely, wherever they are,” said Matthew Pine, director of brand marketing, residential HVAC, Carrier. “Today’s consumers want convenience, and they want it at their fingertips. As a result, they have become more engaged and have high expectations in terms of getting more information out of their home comfort products.”
