Technology is a vital component of every business in today’s world and to stay ahead of the curve, Louis Bruno, owner and founder of Bruno Air Conditioning, makes it a priority to be educated and informed.
Staying ahead of the latest technology takes time and dedication to research and implement, however, Bruno says it is well worth it.
In keeping with the Bruno Air core value for continual improvement, Bruno is partnering with Nest Labs. Acquired by Google in 2014 and founded by Apple veterans Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, Nest is the leader in the connected home industry and manufacturer of learning, sensor-driven, Wi-Fi-enabled products including the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Protect smoke + CO alarm and Nest Cam security camera.
Bruno, interested in the Nest Learning Thermostat and its stellar reputation, began offering the product in April. The thermostat usually carries a two-year Nest warranty; however, Bruno will be offering his clients a life-time warranty on the thermostats his company registers.
A Nest representative flew to Southwest Florida in April to discuss the partnership and hold product training for Bruno employees.
Bruno said he’s excited to have made the connection with Nest Labs and looks forward to more technology partnerships that may, in turn, help him and his company better serve their clients.
In independent studies, the Nest Thermostat saved an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. The thermostat saves energy by automatically turning itself down when the homeowner is away; it remembers temperatures preferred and connects to Wi-Fi so it can be controlled remotely from Smartphones, laptops or tablets. Nest also offers Nest Cam and Nest Protect, a smart smoke/CO detector, so you’re aware about what happens in your home when you aren’t there. Nest also communicates with other smart products such as door locks, garage door openers, door bells, smart appliances and more
“We want to make sure our clients are receiving the best technology available at the best value, we can implement technology to remove obstacles that our clients have from their home ownership experience. We simply want to add value and make our clients as comfortable as possible,” adds Bruno.
“Nest is thrilled to be teaming up with a progressive mechanical contractor like Bruno,” said Matt Thompson, installer development leader at Nest Labs. “Bruno Air Conditioning is one of a select group of hand-picked professional installers around the country that comprise the Nest Pro Elite network.”
Bruno Air Conditioning has made the news many times since the company began in 2013. The company has grown from three employees to over 150 in a few short years with revenues of $25 million. They have received numerous awards and accolades with the two most recent being the Trane® SOAR Award in March 2016 and also named in Trane’s “Top 10” for their exceptional growth in new dealer development.
