“Inexpensive” and “elegant” are subjective terms, and I have not personally used any RFID systems designed for field services. But we have written about a solution from ServiceChannel, a leading online marketplace and SaaS platform for facilities managers, contractors and technicians. Its Asset Manager function provides visibility into the details of physical assets, including work history and maintenance, as well as warranty and preventive maintenance information (see Service Channel Improves Facilities Maintenance via IoT-Fueled Asset Tagging). There are other companies that offer applications for managing assets, though not necessarily HVAC equipment. These solutions could easily be adapted for your purposes. I would encourage any RFID businesses that offer solutions to let me know and I can forward your information to Tom.
