BOXT, the smart home installation technology company from Leeds, has struck a deal with Google across the UK, becoming the first national business to offer voice-controlled heating as standard.
The agreement with Google means that all new boilers installed by BOXT will now come with a free Google Nest Learning Thermostat and Google Home Mini, so that they can be controlled with just your voice.
The deal is part of a massive expansion by BOXT, which only launched in 2017 and is already the highest rated* smart home installation company in the UK. The company is raising £20 million to be used to double the company’s army of smart home installers to 2000, expand internationally and introduce a raft of new smart home products over the next 12 months.
Set up to disrupt and innovate the traditionally archaic home installation market, BOXT’s technology offers a unique real time price and booking service that puts the customer first, passing on the cost savings made through streamlining the quotation and booking process, directly to the customer.
Using its cutting-edge technology platform, BOXT has already become Britain’s second largest boiler installer after just two years of operations, making it second only to British Gas, and is on track to install 40,000 boilers this year.
Not satisfied with just boilers, BOXT’s latest product innovation is set to keep Britain cool in the hot summer months ahead, as it introduces the UK’s first and only national domestic air conditioning installation service – a game changer within the industry.
All BOXT products offer guaranteed installation within 24 hours, with full information about the installer before they turn up, in-home tech demonstrations and comprehensive after sales support.
“Home installation is ripe for disruption and we want BOXT to be the first choice for customers who want to install heating, cooling or any smart technology in their home” said Andy Kerr, co-founder of BOXT.
“We’ve developed our platform to ensure that the process for customers is easy, transparent and always good value – and with no hidden costs or antiquated sales techniques.”
The business has already achieved a turnover of £20m in its first full year of trading with a projection to double this in its current financial period, when the BOXT team aim to expand internationally.
