Home Connectivity

Home automation service.

Home automation is smart––a smart home that is. No longer is controlling the devices in your home from afar a science-fiction scenario. Today, with a Wi-Fi connection and your smartphone, tablet, or computer, you can be in Paris and instruct your Charlotte, NC, window shades to open or your air conditioner to shut down. Home automation, or a smart home, is connecting to home devices from an offsite location and controlling them via voice commands or a button. In turn, these devices can send you information and, in some cases, communicate with one another.

Are All Home Automation Connectivity The Same?

There are varying levels of communication and accompanying costs with each level. For simpler devices, like turning on or off a lamp, the costs are lower. But once the level of communication becomes more complicated, say for outdoor security cameras, the amount of time and money invested increases. To speak with a qualified expert on the various communication levels, along with their associated costs in time and money, call Panther Heating and Cooling, and we would be happy to sit down with you to discuss what’s available in home automation for your home.

Home platforms, also called ecosystems, are the nucleus of home automation. Some home platforms are simple and require only a purchase of the platform itself and Wi-Fi to get started. Other platforms or ecosystems are more complex and charge a monthly fee for access to their app or software. These are all factors to consider when exploring this technology.

Home Automation Is A Growing Industry

Home automation is comprised of a variety of products, integrating into its platforms. This field is expanding by leaps and bounds. In 2015, the home automation market was worth approximately $5.77 billion U.S., and by 2020, experts are predicting its worth will rocket to over $10 billion U.S. Here are some of the primary categories where you can find multiple products to integrate into every room of your smart home.

  • Heating and cooling
  • Lighting
  • Locks
  • Indoor/Outdoor cameras

Bobby Foard has been our technician with Panther for the past several years. He has done or overseen many repairs and installation of our equipment. He is very experienced, keeps up with the latest innovations, and knowledgeable. He is always punctual and follows thru on all projects. He keeps us informed during the work and when done explains what he did and why and the next steps to possible follow-up. He is very caring and personable. On a scale of one to ten in all areas, Bobbie is definitely a 10!

There are so many heating and cooling services to choose from and I am SO GRATEFUL I chose this company. They are knowledgeable, professional, honest, and just overall good people serving their community in the best way. Our technician, Terry, went above and beyond calling for parts, getting us warranties, coordinating with the manager to ensure we were getting the BEST deal and service possible and communicated with us from beginning to end. We had major leaks in our system that needed repair & our refridgerant literally ran out a day before parts could be installed and our home immediately started to climb to over 83 degrees. They arranged for us to take our 1 and 2 year old babies and stay at a nice local hotel for the night! They have truly been a blessing and we will continue to use them for our heating and cooling needs for years to come! And congratulations Terry, you will be an AWESOME father!!

First time using Panther after our AC stopped working. Our tech Bryson was amazing. He came out immediately on a Sunday. Our issue was complicated, so he returned first thing Monday AM to contact our machine’s manufacturer to ensure the correct problem was dealt with and to see if our repair would be covered under warranty. Panther went above and beyond to drove out of town to collect the needed part, so the repair could be done same-day. We were so grateful for such fast service that we felt comfortable signing up for a service plan with Panther. Thanks for everything Panther and especially Bryson!

We’ve been customers of Panther for years and continue to give them high recommendations. The Technician arrived as scheduled, was very polite and professional, and did impeccable work on systems. These are good Rock Hill people (our kids went to school together) and are now in the second generation of their family providing excellent service. Many thanks to Panther!

We have used Panther Heating and Cooling many years. They replaced our upstairs and downstairs units in June 2022.

* Estimate was clear and easy to understand
* Scheduled installation quickly (the very next day!)
* Installers were extremely polite and very clean (it didn't even look like they had even been there)
*Service calls and repairs are scheduled quickly and they are always on-time or early

Terry was my technician and he came out to my new home (1949 flip remodel) to fix what was done incorrectly during the previous homeowner flip/install. He insured my unit outside and inside was working at its best capacity/efficiency. He had to do quite a few fixes. Freon was added since values were not fully open. Installed a p-trap to prevent chiller/unit from backing and leaking and tighten up any duct leaks. He explained all items very clearly and i was very pleased with the outcome.

Im new to Rock Hill and like to use local. I would GrEATLY recommend Panther Heating and Cooling and technician Terry. Very Satisfied.

Job well done.

Great Company!
Got a tech out quickly after a “self repair” didn’t go well.
Tech arrived at the time I was told they would arrive.
Fixed my errors and got the house cooled down.

Both the office staff and the technician were super friendly and professional. Panther was able to quickly diagnose the issue and had it repaired in next to no time at all. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for repair service or even seasonal maintenance.

Brian arrived within 2 hours of reaching out to them. Quickly evaluated the problem and gave us honest options about what we could do to fix it. We went the less expensive route, but we know it’s a temporary fix and will need to be replaced eventually. Appreciated Brian’s feedback and will definitely use them in the future!! Highly recommend!
