Supporting the home energy transition

As HVAC contractors navigate the forefront of the home energy transition, Conduit Tech empowers them with a platform designed to maximize efficiency and enhance customer experience. I seamlessly integrated with their team to conduct a thorough UI/UX evaluation, develop a comprehensive design system, and deliver a holistic app redesign including a streamlined onboarding flow. This effort significantly reduced design debt, fortifying the application for future scalability and innovation.

Conduit Tech is a startup working to accelerate installation efficiency of HVAC systems. I plugged into their team and overhauled their application design.

Design System

Conduit Tech, driven by the rapid pace of lean startup methodology, swiftly launched their HVAC platform into the market, uncovering promise market fit. However, this speed had led to accumulating UX debt, manifesting in manual user onboarding, a surge in support inquiries and hampered scaling. By immersing myself in their user feedback, product documentation, and competitor analysis, I pinpointed areas of friction and devised a plan. I executed a comprehensive UX evaluation, identifying fixes and advocating for a cohesive design system. The disparate styling and inconsistent interactions scattered across the app were unified, fostering a seamless user experience. This initial step set the stage for addressing deeper information architecture issues and more complex friction in user flows. Here's a glimpse into the design system overhaul:


After the core design system was built out, I spearheaded a comprehensive redesign of the Conduit Tech app, leveraging the new design system and informed by insights gathered from user feedback sessions. This transformative effort extended to crafting a new onboarding flow, tailored to enhance user engagement and streamline adoption of their ICP users. The result? A user-centric experience that not only addresses current needs but anticipates future demands, ensuring Conduit Tech remains at the forefront of HVAC innovation.
