Filter Buddy

One Line Pitch: An app-based service that predicts the need for a residential furnace filter change before it causes mechanical failures, and to optimize furnace and air conditioner performance

Business Summary: The innovation is to automate a routine (but critical) commodity purchase – in this case for a home-maintenance process that is often over-looked and tedious to deal with. The algorithm tracks and alerts users to filter change requirements while also sourcing the best filter deals online to ensure ease of use and delivery and optimal filter and furnace performance.   The process automates the sourcing and delivery of filters which are bulky and inconvenient to store. Team anticipates expanding into other residential filters in the future such as water purification filters, AC compressor unit cleaning supplies, and non-commercial vehicle filters.
