MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- American Residential Services (ARS), a Memphis, Tenn. based, privately-held national provider of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services, has partnered with Nest Labs, Inc. to include the Nest Learning Thermostat as a standard component of most of its middle and upper tier residential HVAC system installations. ARS will also offer professional installation of Nest Thermostats as an optional upgrade when performing service and preventative maintenance in previously installed systems.
"We are delighted to be recognized as a Nest Pro Elite partner across our network of more than 70 service centers. As a national leader in the residential HVAC and plumbing industry, ARS service centers can now leverage this exciting technology enabling homes to be smarter and more energy-efficient," says Luis Orbegoso, President and COO of ARS. "The benefits that a smart and connected home offers are very compelling. This partnership will allow us to offer even more value to our customers with Nest's cutting-edge, yet approachable technology."
"While Nest products are designed so that homeowners can choose to install themselves, Nest wants to make it easy for those who'd prefer to take advantage of the benefits of a pro installation," says Gene LaNois, Head of Professional Channel, Nest. "ARS shares our passion for enabling the thoughtful home, and we're excited that they will be incorporating the Nest Thermostat into their installation offerings."
The Nest Thermostat learns the temperatures a homeowner prefers and then programs itself. Independent studies have shown that the Nest Thermostat saves homeowners on average 10-12% on heating and 15% on cooling costs. Nest's algorithms allow customers to monitor their energy history daily, in addition to receiving an easy-to-understand monthly report. The Nest Thermostat will also alert homeowners in the event it detects certain problems with the home's HVAC system.
The Nest Thermostat and other Nest products are now available at all ARS Network branches that provide HVAC services and installations.
