Trends and Technology Innovations for HVAC in 2018
In 2018, there are many innovations steering the heating and cooling industry that can impact you as the consumer. Thiele has rounded up our favorites to keep in mind as you look to improve or replace your current system.
Increasingly, there is a focus on efficiency in the heating and cooling industry. Everything from high-efficiency equipment to limiting heat loss, technicians are looking for new tools and technology to reduce waste. Now that these heating and cooling alternatives are available more widely, more consumers are able to reap many of the cost-saving benefits associated with these options. The majority of 2018 heating and cooling trends can be traced back to being as efficient as possible for both the technicians’ and consumers’ benefit.
Although they have been around for some time, smart thermostats are making their way into the mainstream. If you’re unfamiliar with the technology, a smart thermostat is a device that connects to WiFi and can automatically connect to your HVAC system to adjust the temperature. This real-time adjustment helps increase energy efficiency in the home and contributes savings as well.
Data Focused Decisions
Rather than trusting instincts, heating and cooling specialists will use real metrics to make decisions. Using new technologies, heating and cooling professionals will be able to tailor their service to your specific unit and situation. This is great news for those who live in severe climates or have special requests.
Zoned Heating & Air
Zoned HVAC systems are gaining popularity for their efficiency and money-saving potential. The premise of zoned heating and cooling is that little-used rooms in your home will not take up precious energy just to reach your selected temperature. While zoned HVACs can be highly sophisticated, they can still be installed in a traditional system to meet your specific needs. According to HVAC.com, these traditional zoning methods can save homeowners thirty-percent on annual energy usage.
Green & Sustainable HVAC
Your systems’ parts and equipment help contribute to the environment in more ways than one. Green mechanical systems keep indoor air both fresh and clean. These innovations keep your home as warm or cold as you need and do so in the greenest way possible.
