Keeping Up with Innovative Technological Innovations in HVAC

By Michael Rosario, Construction Tech Review | Friday, January 15, 2021

Ductless HVAC systems can be fitted from moderate temperature zones to harsh temperature zones. The already effective ductless system can be made more productive by the use of smart AC controls.

FREMONT, CA: The global HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning) system market is anticipated to grow from USD 202 billion in 2020 to 277 billion by 2025. While the fundamental growth in HVAC technology was centered on mechanical developments and increased productivity, the current focus has also widely grown toward sustainability, ease, and energy-saving. This facet is essential considering the present impression on the climate and the rise in demand for qualified heating and cooling systems.

Below are some of the latest technological advancements taking the existing HVAC system toward a brighter future.

Top 10 HVAC Solution Companies

1. Geothermal HVAC Systems

Green or sustainable technology is the affair of the present and the future. In the HVAC sector, this denotes keeping the natural flow of air in mind and depend on a more efficient system. Geothermal heating and cooling methods are an attractive option to start reducing the carbon footprint. Their main emphasis lies on naturally cooling a house employing heat pumps, water, and an underground piping system. They transfer heat with the ground, and no refrigerant is used, making them profoundly environmentally friendly.

In winter, the heat from the ground is absorbed and moved into a building, while in summer, the heat is transferred to the ground after being absorbed from the building. Geothermal systems are costly to install, but they deliver twice to four times the competence of other systems.

2. Ductless HVAC Systems

Energy efficiency is the answer to the HVAC systems of the future. Ductless systems are swiftly becoming the system of choice as they are super-efficient, and their integration does not include extensive ducts. This feature makes them cost-effective and easy to install.

Another advantage of ductless systems is their zoning ability. In the case of a ductless system, one does not need to heat or cool an entire home, but they can heat or cool a specific zone.  These systems are very resourceful with excellent seasonal efficiency ratings.

Ductless HVAC systems can be fitted from moderate temperature zones to harsh temperature zones. The already effective ductless system can be made more productive by the use of smart AC controls. These intelligent AC controls are name and type independent, and one can control the ductless system from anywhere. Furthermore, users can benefit from intelligent AC features like geofencing, scheduling, comfy mode, etc.

3. Thermally Driven Air Conditioning

Thermally operated air conditioning is a new HVAC technology picking on the requirement for sustainable systems. It offers an energy-efficient cooling method and can be adopted as an alternative to conventional air conditioners. As a substitute for electricity, this system uses solar energy for cooling, and if unattainable, then natural gas kicks in. This instance eliminates electricity costs.

While this HVAC tool is not very widespread, it is an exceptional glimpse into an eco-friendly future. Thermally powered air conditioning systems eliminate heat with evaporation at low pressure. They are enormously influential; however, a high temperature (around 350F) is essential to generate electricity from the solar panels.
