Nest thermostats are about to get a lot more helpful for your customers and your business because we’re adding a new feature that will help Nest thermostat users look after their homes – and qualified pros get more valuable leads. It’s called HVAC monitoring, and it’ll be available on all Nest thermostats starting October 30.
How HVAC monitoring works
- Nest thermostat algorithms detect an HVAC issue and alerts the homeowner via the app and/or email.
- From that alert, the homeowner books an HVAC maintenance appointment via Handy.
- Handy routes the job to a local Nest Pro for acceptance. If the customer has a Pro ID in their thermostat, that Nest Pro will surface in the alert and on Handy.
- The Nest Pro performs a checkup visit, identifies needs for repairs and replacements, and transacts all follow-up work with the customer directly.
How to get started
HVAC monitoring can help you build stronger customer relationships, offer more value to your customers and book more jobs during the shoulder season. Nest Pros interested in the HVAC monitoring program fill out an onboarding form and Handy will reach out to them. Or, Pros can schedule a call directly with Handy through a scheduling tool. Fill out onboarding form and Handy will reach out to you (partnerships.handy.com/nestpro-onboarding) or directly schedule call with Handy based on your schedule (calendly.com/handyonboarding/nest).
