Buildings need Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. When it comes to ensuring that an indoor environment is safe and pleasant to be in, these systems need infrastructure consisting of several air handlers and other equipment that are expensive and consumes a lot of energy as well.
The good news is that the HVAC market has progressed significantly. Recent advances in renewable energy and smart technology make these systems more sustainable than ever, consuming less energy while fostering healthier indoor and outdoor environments. Check out five (5) of the most intriguing developments as you decide which HVAC system is best for your next project:
1. Sustainable HVAC Systems
When we think about Eco Homes, we must look at how we build our ventilation system. Without it, are we really being responsible for our consumption, or are we contributing more to air and energy pollution?
The ventilation systems are designed to enhance natural circulation while using materials that stabilize the building temperature.
Sensor-enhanced vents are the most recent environmentally friendly HVAC technology. The new technology collects and transmits data on the temperature conditions of various rooms using sophisticated sensors. This allows you to remotely monitor the climate of each room via an app, resolving temperature discrepancies in your rooms for greater comfort and lower energy use.
2. Ductless HVAC Systems
A ductless HVAC system is ideal for you if you live in an older home without ductwork (baseboard heat), have high monthly energy bills, obsolete air conditioning systems, and unoccupied spaces.
Ductless HVAC systems use infrared technology to deliver data to cool or heat your room. This technological development is simple to set up, efficient, and affordable. Furthermore, this method only allows you to heat or cool a room in your home.
3. Zoned HVAC System
An HVAC zoning system divides a home into different zones, each of which can be regulated independently by a separate thermostat. Different temperature settings may be necessary for various rooms, and zoning allows you to get the ideal temperature for each location. This is important when you want to reduce the utilization of vacant rooms.
Zones can be used with central air conditioning, VRF, or ductless systems. Zones can also be installed in existing systems by using a zone control panel.
4. Solar Powered HVAC technology
Thermally powered air conditioning is a revolutionary HVAC technology that addresses environmentally friendly systems requirements. It is an energy-efficient cooling solution that can be used in place of regular air conditioners. Instead of electricity, this system uses solar energy for cooling, and if solar energy is unavailable, natural gas is used.
While this HVAC technology is not widely used, it provides an excellent view into an environmentally friendly future. They are incredibly effective and efficient but may require a high temperature (about 350F) to create electricity.
5. DeVAP Air Conditioning
DEVap, or Desiccant-Enhanced Evaporative Air Conditioner, is a breakthrough technology that has the potential to transform the HVAC business. Developed by The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, this new HVAC system combines the cooling power of evaporation with the dehumidifying capacity of liquefied desiccants to create a low-cost air conditioner that produces chilly, dry air. Although not yet commercially available, the prototypes have shown an incredible 90% reduction in energy use compared to typical air conditioners.
The smart home trend is not going away, and HVAC systems that are fully automated, super-efficient, self-learning, and sustainable are not falling behind in developing a new demand from the supply chain.
