If the last 10-15 years have taught us anything, our country is constantly paying attention to its energy consumption. Our climate is growing significantly hotter and hotter, requiring more energy to be sucked up by 100-degree days.
HVAC is no different in its focus, as the industry has made some giant leaps in recent years to create more energy-efficient systems.
In this article, we’re going to look at some of the most recent technological advancements in the HVAC industry, so you know what’s new in the world of heating and cooling.
1. Environmental-friendly and efficient regulations.
The most recent technological advancement that has been made in the HVAC industry is the focus on environmental-friendly and efficient regulations. In the past, HVAC systems were not always the most energy-efficient, which resulted in a lot of wasted energy and money.
However, HVAC manufacturers are now required to meet specific standards of efficiency to sell their products. That has resulted in a big push for more energy-efficient HVAC systems, which is good news for both the environment and your wallet (in the long run).
2. HVAC units are seen as an investment thanks to these regulations.
Another reason why HVAC units are becoming more popular is that they are seen as an investment, thanks to the strict efficiency regulations that have been put in place. In the past, HVAC systems were not always seen as an investment because they were not always the most energy-efficient or cost-effective.
Now, however, people are starting to see HVAC units as an investment because they know that they will save money in the long run, thanks to the increased efficiency. People are keyed into their return on investment. And the ROI here is the increased efficiency and longevity of the system designed specifically for your home.
3. Variable speed blowers.
Another new technology developed in recent years is the variable speed blower. This blower is designed to adjust its speed based on the demand for heating or cooling in your home.
That means it will use less energy when the demand is low, for example, if it’s four o’clock in the morning and it’s 55 degrees outside, or more energy when the demand is high, like when it’s the afternoon, and it’s 95 degrees outside. That can result in significant savings on your energy bill and reduce your carbon footprint.
