Written on: October 22, 2021 by ICM

Bluon, Inc. has received the top software innovation award by ASHRAE and the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR), which will be presented at the 2022 AHR Expo, set for Jan. 21-Feb. 2, 2022 in Las Vegas. The Expo is sponsored by ASHRAE.

Bluon’s mobile app makes HVAC technicians in the field more effective, more efficient and more capable. Its 70,000+ members are given access to 24/7 live support, just-in-time training, tools, a powerful database of over 45,000 unique HVAC-R models, and soon, a method to connect directly to local distributors to make informed purchases.

“Bluon is more than a mobile app, it’s more than a support platform,” said Peter Capuciati, Chairman & CEO at Bluon. “Bluon is 70,000 HVAC-R technicians, soon to be 150,000 or half the industry, who are supported and connected like never before. Bluon is the first scalable solution that is actually making a difference in helping to minimize the skilled labor shortage that continues to plague the HVAC-R industry.”
