HVAC systems can be one of the biggest energy consumers in your home.
- Current HVAC trends are geared toward becoming more energy efficient and more friendly for the environment.
There are several types of HVAC systems available now because technology has become a huge section of HVAC. With a smart HVAC, remote capabilities are available for you to control your HVAC system from anywhere wirelessly. A smart system can alert you when it needs a repair or routine maintenance check. The sensors in the control unit, compressor, or other areas can help regulate how the system should run, when it is necessary and where. New buildings are now being designed with sustainability in mind as a new movement that is called green building design. Sustainable designs such as various ventilation systems are using natural airflow to reduce energy costs. Different building materials that can keep a building at a more constant temperature are also being used. Solar HVAC systems can be installed in new construction or used to update existing buildings. These systems use solar paneling to absorb heat and light energy from the daylight and create electricity for your heating and/or cooling system. Geothermal HVAC systems contain an earth loop which is a system of pipes buried underground. Ground temperatures tend to stay more constant than the air temperatures that tend to rise and fall. Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of their consistency to heat and cool your building. Water is run through the underground pipes and is heated or cooled by the ground’s constant temperature. An indoor device uses a fan, compressor, and pump to give the air throughout the building. Performing an energy audit is an ideal place to start when reviewing HVAC options for your facility. A professional HVAC corporation can help you by assessing your facility and doing the audit to help you decide what can cater to your facility’s specific needs the best.
