I am not a fan of trade shows or conventions, however my new position requires myself and others to attend them as a section of the supplier strategy. The last one I attended had more than 12 companies represented, including more than a few from the heating industry. The trade fair’s theme involved sustainability, which many of our investors were looking to engage in. I interacted with a heating pro that had sent an Heating & A/C team to show their new furnaces promoting sustainability. One was a heating pump, & the heating contractor explained how it works & why it’s the future. I also learned more about heaters separate from wasting energy & the convenience of the smart thermostat as a needed feature for every apartment & not just the exclusively rich. I had gone to the fair expecting to find people sharing what they were doing about sustainability in their companies & did not expect to find such innovative products. I asked the heating pro if their shoppers could change or replace to the heat pump installation, & he lit up to explain how it was possible & a nice decision. When I presented my findings to our supplier after the fair, most people were interested in finding new whole apartment heating options, especially if they were promised lower energy costs & low-cost oil furnace maintenance, all while offering more efficient help with indoor comfort. I did not have enough currency to replace myself, however I had already started a new savings plan to change my central Heating & A/C to a hybrid idea in the next three years. Meanwhile, I am trying my best to manage my energy use with my thermostat & other manual techniques.
