Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are complex pieces of equipment that contribute a high percentage of energy consumption costs in both residential and commercial facilities. As a result, manufacturers are keen to leverage IoT technology to improve product quality, performance, and to reduce maintenance costs.
The Internet ofThings (IoT) technology provides an ideal solution to building better systems, making more energy efficient and reducing service truck rolls.Using an integrated system of equipment sensors working with smart thermostats, HVAC manufacturers can differentiate their products and improve competitiveness, while also unlocking the value of data generated by their devices for new business models.
