When was the last time you went a day, or even a few hours without checking something online.
Ok, you can not count when you are sleeping because even then I am sure that something in your house is connected to the internet in your home.
We live in a world where even our basic appliances are monitored or connected to WiFi or at the very least have the capability of doing so. Unless you live where these services are not available you probably have at least one device that is online all the time. Keeping this in mind, many manufacturers are developing items to make you more and more dependent on this. Your HVAC companies are no different. Streamlining production, maintenance, and even sales by using the internet has become a huge part of this industry. With online technology and the development of Smart appliances you can have a problem diagnosed, in many cases, before a technician even arrives. In some cases they can actually reset your system remotely without even dispatching someone to your home. When you consider how far this industry has come in the last twenty years or so you can’t help but imagine what the next twenty will bring. This is a scary premis for many of the older generations but it is exciting at the same time. If your grandparents are still around you should ask them about the types of HVAC units they remember from their youth. I am sure their heads are spinning with the new advances that have come about. Yours may be too when you hear about the cumbersome and various ways they used to keep their homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
