With demand for smart home automation growing exponentially, Google and Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P. (Goodman) have collaborated to launch the Nest Thermostat E + Goodman program designed for Goodman’s extensive independent dealer network across the United States.

The new offering from one of North America’s largest smart home thermostat brands marks the first time Google has offered a co-branded product and experience with a HVAC manufacturer. According to the research firm McKinsey Company, with their branded thermostat, Goodman brand HVAC dealers now have a unique opportunity to tap into homeowners’ mounting demands for home automation.

Commenting on the product’s efficacy, Rob Barnes, Vice President of Product Marketing for Goodman, said, “The Nest Thermostat E + Goodman pairs effortlessly with new Goodman equipment from base efficiency air conditioners to high-performing, multistage ComfortBridge products.”

The Nest Thermostat E + Goodman is enabled with Google Assistant – so that homeowners can easily adjust their indoor comfort by using the ‘Hey, Google’ prompt with devices like a Nest Hub play or Nest smart speakers or even a mobile phone with the Google Assistant app.

Focusing on the product’s application benefits, Barnes said, “Both HVAC contractors and homeowners will find tremendous value with this Goodman-branded Google Nest thermostat –  from service alerts customized with dealer contact information to a 5-year limited warranty.”

Homeowners can receive monthly, tailored Nest home reports delivering system performance and energy efficiencies of their Goodman HVAC system. If maintenance or service is needed, Nest HVAC monitoring can alert homeowners, providing dealer contact information and a means to book an appointment online with their Goodman brand dealer – a feature designed to help improve customer retention.
