Augmented Reality applications in HVAC industry
Heat pumps, radiators, boilers, ventilating system or AC-units… all of those are sold primarily due to how they work... but what about the visual side of things? AR not only allows to clarify whether the chosen product won’t be a visual detriment to the overall interior or exterior setting, but it also solves the question of physical dimensions — in other words, is it going to fit in here?
Having to spend 5–12k or even more to have a giant metal box sitting next to your newly built house… is something that anyone would think about twice before committing to it. That is where we step in and provide the HVAC salespeople with the ability to confirm right then and there that the given unit in will in fact physically fit in and won't be out of place in terms of design.
One of the first companies to embrace this revolutionary sales tool were Mastertherm, Kronoterm and most recently Vaillant. Placing a virtual object into an actual environment answers questions like “Is this boiler going to fit in my basement?”, “Will this heat pump’s color variation going to fit with the facade of my house?” or “How big of a space should I leave empty in order to fit this unit in my garage?”.
