HVAC, which stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, isn't considered a super sexy industry. You won't see companies in this industry that grow as fast as Uber, Facebook, or Snapchat, especially in the commercial HVAC market. Titans like Honeywell or Trane have dominated this market for a long time and consequently, the fundamentals of managing a buildings ventilation system have not changed much either.
But with the recent commercial launch of 75F industry experts, investors, and trade enthusiasts are beginning to take notice to an entirely new approach.
In 2014, 75F brought home 9 awards including the People's Choice Award and winning the Energy Efficiency Division at the 2014 Clean Tech Open in San Francisco. Heralded as "The Academy Awards of CleanTech". Also, 75F won Rise of The Rest with Steve Case (Co-founder of AOL) and received an investment to boot.
Now, this spring 75F has been invited by Steve Case once again, to present the award winning technology and business at SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas. Shortly thereafter, CEO Deepinder Singh will hop over to Google in Mountain View to present at Google Demo Day.
This attention speaks to the innovative technology that reworks controlling internal climates from the ground up, instead of slapping a bandaid on a hemorrhaging wound. Thanks to reduced cost of sensors, cloud computing power, and wireless technology the powerful Internet of Things can be implemented in a way that has never been done before.
If HVAC was born today, this is the way it would have been done. "This is zoning, that works!", says one of our distributors and champions of this product.
