IRVINE, Calif. — Bluon Inc. and Sera Systems Inc., two HVAC software companies, announce their plan to join forces to modernize and bring a new level of productivity to the HVAC industry from OEM to distributor to contractor to technician and all the way to the consumer.

HVAC is a well-established $150 billion industry, yet Gallup estimates that, on average, HVAC businesses are operating at a staggering low 32% efficiency. Together, Bluon and Sera, for the first time, can materially impact these inefficiencies through the combined power of their next-generation platforms, which are both focused on creating far more efficient and effective technicians in the field. 

Bluon, home of one of the largest HVAC communities on earth, supports HVAC contractors and their technicians in the field while connecting them with their local brick-and-mortar distributors increasing their quality of life, productivity, and bottom line. With Bluon, techs have a single source that is brand-agnostic for community interaction, equipment documentation, live 24/7 tech support, and acquiring parts and materials from their local distributors. Bluon provides the first data and transactional throughline from OEM to distributor to contractor to technician, providing material value to each.

Sera, a field service management software offering, partners with contractors to improve their bottom lines by optimizing key business levers: time management, tech efficiency, cash flow, and membership management. Sera’s unique platform and consultative approach enables small, medium, and large contractors alike to see an enormous impact on their businesses in just a few months. As a result, Sera's customers are guaranteed to improve their margins by 50% or more within six months.

“From the very beginning, Sera was developed to bring efficiencies to all areas of a contractor’s business,” said Billy Stevens, CEO and founder, Sera. “With Bluon, we are realizing efficiencies we never thought possible.”

Bluon and Sera plan to integrate their two innovative platforms, which will create a comprehensive solution connecting contractors up and down the supply chain — bringing material value to all stakeholders, including OEMs, distributors, and end user customers.

“This integration is laying the foundation for a future where contractors, small and large, won’t be charged a penny to have access to a suite of services and best-in-class software tools,” said Peter Capuciati, CEO and founder, Bluon. “The idea of making these services and tools readily available to the small one-to-five-man shops — which make up 65% of the industry — is truly exciting.”

Today, Bluon and Sera announce their plans to begin integration while they encourage customers to adopt both platforms to gain immediate and meaningful benefit during the 2023 season. This approach will not only bring substantial value to their shared contractor customers but will provide valuable insights and feedback to inform the full integration of their two innovative platforms.
