Construction isn’t the only industry seeing a shift in thinking. Technology is advancing and HVAC is not being left out. What are some new HVAC innovations changing the industry landscape?
1. Electronic Air Cleaners
People are becoming more aware of the importance of clean air. They are adding electronic air cleaners which are 40 times more efficient than a filter in removing unhealthy particles.
Rightsizing HVAC systems brings the system to peak efficiency. Learn more about right-sizing here.
3. Ductless HVAC
Ductless HVAC is a great option for buildings built before ducts were common. Within 5 years, they could represent 15% of the industry revenues.
4. HVAC Maintenance
HVAC maintenance needs are becoming more and more known. By rightsizing, changing filters monthly, and having a maintenance agreement in place, building owners can see 10-15 years of life from their HVAC system.
5. Energy Cost Smarts
The use of Building Automation Systems (BAS), regular maintenance, and cutting power from unused electronics (75% of utility costs are from electronics in standby or off mode) is cutting utility bills for property owners.
As home and building owners become more knowledgeable on the link between HVAC and energy costs, the HVAC innovations will become even more prevalent. We’re excited to see what is to come in the next 10 years.
