HVAC systems can be one of the largest existent energy consumers.
Current heating and cooling trends are geared toward increasing energy efficiency and becoming more environmentally friendly.
There are several types of HVAC systems available now that technology has become an increasingly huge part of heating and A/C. Smart HVAC thermostat capabilities are available for you to be able to wirelessly control your HVAC system from anywhere. Smart systems can alert you when it needs a needed repair or routine service check.Sensors in the control unit, compressor, or other areas can help regulate how the system should run and when and where it is actually needed. New buildings are now being designed with sustainability in mind as a modern movement called green building design. Sustainable designs such as a variety of different ventilation systems are using natural airflow to reduce energy bills. Different building materials that can keep a building at a more constant temperature are also being used. Solar HVAC systems can be installed in up-to-date construction or used to update existing buildings. These systems use solar paneling to absorb light and heat energy from the sunshine and power your heating and/or cooling system. Geothermal heating and A/C systems contain a system of pipes buried underground, called an earth loop. Ground temperatures are more constant than the rising and falling air temperatures. Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of their consistency to heat and cool your building. Water runs through the underground pipes and is then heated or cooled by the ground’s constant temperature. An indoor unit uses a fan, compressor, and a pump to deliver the air throughout the building. A good step to take to be informed on the up-to-date HVAC options for your facility, is to perform an energy audit. A professional heating and A/C company can help you by assessing your facility and completing an audit to help you decide what is a best fit for your facility’s needs.
