(May 26, 2017) – Fluxus Ventures is excited to announce an investment into Flair, a Berkeley, CA based smart home technology company. This investment is a continuation of Fluxus’ mission to back innovators that are working to make buildings and cities smarter and more efficient.
Flair addresses the problem of uneven heating and cooling in your home or in commercial buildings through its smart vents and internet-connected Puck air conditioner (AC) controllers. Flair’s technology platform can be used to optimize and control both centralized heating and cooling systems and less sophisticated window or mini-split AC units.
“We are excited to have the backing of Fluxus Ventures as we bring next generation heating and cooling technology to market. Fluxus and Flair both share a passion for making cities better. With heating and cooling being one of the biggest energy consumers, we are poised to materially impact energy usage in cities around the world.”, said Dan Myers, CEO and co-founder of Flair. Jon Bartelt, a partner at Fluxus, added, “We are excited to back the Flair team! Their products are best among peers and lowest in cost, a testimony to the excellent capability of the team. For consumers, their product will both improve building occupant comfort and reduce HVAC costs.”
