It’s Time to Start Thinking About That Spring Home Show

Exhibiting at a home show isn’t cheap. Your contracting business is probably spending a significant amount of money and manhours to participate. And, that’s ok…if there is a payoff.

Doing home shows as part of a marketing strategy is a good idea, but only if you have something different, new and compelling for consumers to learn about. So, what will you be sharing with homeowners that the HVAC guy in the next booth hasn’t already? Here’s some options:

Smart Thermostats

Homeowners are getting tired of utility company increases and paying more to heat and cool their homes. Smart thermostats offer them more control over those expenses.

Nest smart thermostats are the most popular among homeowners. Here’s why:

The Nest Learning Thermostat is the only thermostat endorsed by Energy Star for maximum energy savings. In fact, it has been proven that Nest thermostats can help a homeowner save as much as 15% on heating and cooling expenses.

Nest Learning thermostats also offer:

  • more control in- or away-from-home
  • easy to use app
  • monthly reporting and suggestions for more energy savings
  • long battery life and reliability
  • five-year warranty (when installed by a Nest Pro Contractor)

Nest Pro Contractors enjoy lower prices on Nest Products at Jackson Systems and product warranties. Learn more about Nest Learning thermostats here:

Other brands of excellent smart thermostats include ecobee, Lyric, Lux, Sensi, and more. See our comprehensive offering here:

Wi-Fi Security Cameras

Security systems used to be for the wealthy. Not anymore. Honeywell now offers security cameras that are affordable and super easy to install.

Honeywell’s Lyric C2 Wi-Fi Security Camera provides homeowners the ability to monitor a home from afar. Pair with the Lyric app to access live streaming for recorded events that will alert when something is seen or analyzed like a smoke/CO detector going off or even a baby crying—and that provides homeowners with peace of mind.

The Lyric C2 integrates with Google Home and Apple HomeKit.

Also pretty great is the even more affordable Lyric C1 Indoor Camera at just a little over one hundred dollars, contractor cost. See both cameras here:,

Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detection

Leaks happen. And, when they do, they can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in damage. In fact, water damage is the second most common homeowner insurance claim with the average water damage claim costing more than $8,000. But, today, we have the most reliable, best protection ever…with LeakSMART!

LeakSMART is the world’s most intelligent leak and flood protection system for a home or business. Not only does it detect a leak as soon as it starts, but it stops it in less than 5 seconds by shutting it off at the main.

A more affordable Wi-Fi leak detector (but cannot turn the water off) is the Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector. It keeps customers connected to help protect against water damage — immediately alerting them to water leaks before they become bigger problems.

FilterFetch™ Air Filter Home Delivery Service

Filter Fetch is a web-based app that enables contractors to sell filters and have them home delivered to their customers without ever leaving the office or having to physically inventory them. An app helps technicians easily sign customers up for the service and manage filter product selections, deliveries, orders and renewals. Customers receive regular filter change reminders during their subscription. And, contractors make profits based on their FilterFetch sales.
