A new consumer comfort survey by Emerson shows that heating and cooling concerns can contribute to family disagreements, lowered productivity and even lost retail sales. This presents an opportunity for contractors to start a comfort conversation with homeowners and facility managers about technology and solutions that can help drive comfort and livability.
Issues like humidity, zoning and indoor air quality caused 76 percent of respondents to say they aren’t comfortable in their own homes. Nearly 40 percent admitted to having family disagreements about comfortable temperature. And a quarter of respondents say the air in their home causes their allergies to act up.
