ST. LOUIS, January 27, 2015 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business segment of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), will display its new ComfortGuard™ Monitoring Service at the 2015 AHR Expo show in Chicago, booth 5010. This show will be the first opportunity for contractors outside select test markets to see how this offering can benefit their businesses.
The ComfortGuard service allows homeowners to manage their heating and cooling equipment by providing real-time information and professional insight that predicts problems, prevents energy waste, and protects indoor comfort around-the-clock.
“We are looking for contractors to join the ComfortGuard authorized network. Our focus is on identifying key contractors in target geographies who have certified technicians, leverage advanced technology in their businesses and are very focused on customer service,” said Steve Cox, vice president – Residential Retail at Emerson Climate Technologies. “We are very encouraged by the results in our test markets and look forward to working with an expanded group of contractors to bring this offering to their customers.”
Following installation by an authorized service professional, ComfortGuard's 10 state-of-the-art sensors collect and transmit data over a Wi-Fi connection every time the heating and cooling system runs. With every run, a “32-point” inspection is conducted, including a scan for efficiency changes, filter degradation and component problems. Any indication of a problem generates a notice to the ComfortGuard monitoring team who analyzes the data before sending a system alert to the homeowner and their service professional.
Homeowners are fully informed and in control with emailed alerts, efficiency and filter status, monthly System Insight Reports and repair verifications. They also have access to a fully responsive web and mobile portal, making system status, live data, equipment details and filter size just a click away. In addition, the homeowner’s contractor is alerted and will contact the homeowner to schedule a service call.
