Balanced Air partnered with other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes during a welcome home ceremony in Parrish, Florida, for USA Sergeant First Class Andrew Gonzalez. Throughout his service, Gonzalez suffered many injuries that have impacted his mobility. His injuries require specific modifications to his home in order to live safely and focus on his recovery.

Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has announced compatibility between their control platform and Resideo’s Honeywell Home T Series Smart Thermostats. This cloud-to-cloud integration includes voice control via Savant’s touchscreen Pro Remote and Pro 8 app.
Thermostats have gotten seriously smart in the last decade. While they’re a great improvement over traditional thermostats, smart thermostats still cannot affect air distribution across a building to adjust for hot or cold spots, leaving a lot to be desired in terms of making the home a comfortable place.
Johnson Controls Inc. had a big 2018, with the launch of several new products and the acquisition of Lux Products Corp. For Johnson Controls, the Lux acquisition enhances its commitment to thermostats. The move also enables faster product development cycles, improves customer service capabilities, and supports greater product innovation.
From spin-offs to new refrigerants, Honeywell has made several changes to its business — some that were reflected at this year’s expo. One of the changes began in August of 2018, as the company announced the spinoff of Honeywell’s Homes and ADI Global Distribution business into Resideo Technologies Inc.
Emerson’s AHR booth showcased its solutions and award-winning products in the areas of human comfort, cold chain, professional tools, and building infrastructure. It also featured the company’s 2019 Innovation Award winning product in the Refrigeration category — the Copeland Scroll™ fractional-horsepower, low-temperature compressor.
As HVAC products and home appliances get “smarter,” so too is the boiler — although perhaps with less flash and bang than the smart thermostat, smart doorbell, smartphone, or the new smart furniture that’s hitting the market. (Smart sofa, anyone? It’s a thing.)
