Green HVAC Trends to Watch Out for in 2019

HVAC technologies have gotten smarter and more advanced recently. New developments in the heating and cooling industry are centered on preventing heat loss and bringing on board renewable resources including geothermal and solar energies. This 2019, get ready for these three (3) green innovations in the HVAC industry.

  1. Smart Residential HVAC Systems

Maintaining a comfortable indoor atmosphere requires your HVAC system to work round-the-clock, thus taking a big portion in your monthly budget. For this reason, many homeowners are switching to smart home HVAC technologies like smart thermostats for efficient temperature control and lesser heating and cooling costs.

Smart thermostats allow people to control their heaters and A/C unit using an app on their smartphones. The market is projected to increase in sales up to 29.5% by 2024. These technologies also offer other intelligent functionalities such as text alerts and real-time updates. Some models of smart thermostats can adjust indoor lighting while others can regulate the indoor temperature based on your preferences through their built-in sensors.

  1. Automation and Smart Controls in Commercial Buildings

In a conference conducted by Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, it is stated that smart controls and monitoring capabilities will have an important involvement in commercial and building management in the present.

About 40% of monthly expenses in commercial buildings account for heating and cooling expenditures. In this light, commercial owners have adopted smart controls and automation to regulate their HVAC system and reduce their energy consumption on a daily basis.

  1. Green Building

Is green building something new to you? This HVAC trend is expected to grow continuously in the coming years. According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), green building is when you consider environmental aspects like the energy, water use, and materials during the planning, design, construction and daily operations in the business.

LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) buildings are required to have the ENERGY STAR label for maximized safety. The goal of green building is energy efficiency while helping commercial owners with their daily operations in the business.
