Today, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) market is no longer the same as it was before. With emerging technologies and trends on the horizon, many segments within the HVAC industry are getting a facelift. Besides, new applications are being introduced while HVAC systems are equipped with digital tools and internet connectivity. The current HVAC trends are revolutionary and exciting as the changes provide a considerable potential to reduce energy usage, reorganize heating and cooling costs, and make buildings and homes smarter as well as comfortable.
One of the most accommodating new trends in HVAC systems is the option of interior zoning. Created with ductwork dampers, zoning systems allow users to control HVAC settings on a room-by-room basis with individual thermostats. On the other hand, the implementation of smart sensors has enabled HVAC appliances to do much more than only heating or cooling offices and homes. These sensors help automate operations and improve the overall functionality and comfort provided by HVAC systems. And these sensors connect to the central control system via the IoT in providing significant data for more effective operation and environment control.
Artificial intelligence is improving environmental quality by optimizing variables such as temperature, airflow, and humidity while conserving quality with the lowest possible energy consumption. Alongside, data analytics is helping with pattern recognition and the correlation between cause and effect of issues occurring in the HVAC subsystems. It also assists in benchmarking HVAC system performance against industry standards. The advent of geothermal heating and cooling system is helping in fostering green energy. This type of system draws energy from the ground under a building, which results in the substantial reduction of carbon footprints.
At this juncture, there is a wide variety of HVAC service providers entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated offerings.
