Bluon, Inc., the fast-growing company focused on modernizing the HVAC industry, today announced the launch of BluonSearch, the industry’s most comprehensive parts and equipment cross-reference database. of the HVAC. BluonSearch represents a giant leap forward in enabling HVAC distributors to quickly determine their customers’ needs and meet them using their local inventory – all through a highly intuitive, brand-independent tool offering instant access to over 300 000 unique model numbers and 3 million unique parts, with over 40 million cross references listed.
Distributors lose a significant portion of potential part orders – estimated at up to 50% – by not having a comprehensive, easy-to-use database to help them determine which part, or equivalent part, their customer has. really need. BluonSearch solves what is an outrageously prevalent problem in the HVAC industry, costing local distributors billions in lost potential revenue and technicians countless hours of wasted time.
BluonSearch is the rebirth of XREF, acquired by Bluon in 2021, which provided basic access to spare parts and cross-reference information for HVAC distributors nationwide. Bluon and his unique team of database technicians and engineers spent nine months going through the huge database, adding specifications and new connections and, most importantly, ensuring data accuracy. The result is BluonSearch, an entirely new and updated database that allows even the most novice employees to instantly add decades of experience to their daily interactions with customers.
“We’re excited to provide our customers with a much-needed complete hardware and cross-reference tool,” said Adam Curry, vice president of software at Bluon. “It turns out the world of HVAC parts and equipment is kind of a mess. The industry is large but fragmented, so we’ve had hundreds of manufacturers producing millions of parts, but no one has created a truly brand-agnostic map to navigate it all. This lack of a simple search tool is a hidden tax on the industry, costing billions in missed sales and lost productivity. BluonSearch is a huge leap forward for HVAC distributors and their customers. ”
BluonSearch is part of the BluonLive platform, which will connect over 110,000 HVAC technicians currently using Bluon’s mobile support app with their local HVAC distributors. BluonLive, slated to launch in June, will provide distributors with a powerful new way to receive order inquiries from knowledgeable field technicians. It will let the distributor know the specific model number the technology is working on and any known compatible replacements for the specific parts requested.
Bluon recognizes that HVAC technicians are the heart and soul of the industry and the ultimate drivers of its efficiency and innovation. Bluon’s Support Platform is a revolutionary mobile app that provides tools, training, and 24/7 technical support to HVAC technicians in the field. Bluon is the first mobile app platform to aggregate detailed technical information on over 40,000 unique HVAC models, further providing technicians with the information they need to be efficient and competent on the job. With over 150,000 downloads, 65,000 on-board technician members (increasing by 6,500 each month) and hundreds of distributors already in the Bluon network, it has become the largest and fastest growing support community and platform. in HVAC.
