Fremont, CA: The Internet of Things (IoT) has filled almost every aspect of our life. But how is it influencing how we do business? For one thing, it allows businesses to become more adaptable. This is all due to software, internet platforms, and unprecedented interconnectivity. It is transforming all industries, including commercial HVAC. If anyone who own a heating and cooling company or manufacture HVAC equipment, they may be asking how to stay ahead of this ever-changing landscape.
Here are some trends that are transforming the future of commercial HVAC.
Connectivity and Data to Improve Control
Today, structures are built in a slightly different manner. Many contractors and architects are constructing with "green" thinking in mind, increasing the installation of smart meters, thermostats, and sensors to reduce power bills. Not only can building owners manage the temperature, but they can also control the humidity and circulation. They're doing it all from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. What makes this possible? Using powerful Wi-Fi-enabled applications, landlords, owners, property managers, and maintenance technicians may now effortlessly monitor and control a building's atmosphere.
Eco-Friendly HVAC Systems
Today, green efforts are big business. Everyone wants to save money (and the world). As a result, there is an increase in the demand for ecologically friendly HVAC units, which involve utilizing solar panels and wind turbines to minimize energy expenses. Geothermal heating and cooling systems are also becoming more popular, eliminating the need for petroleum-based electricity. Instead, these heat pumps collect energy from the ground and water sources, such as ponds, to heat and cool buildings. Some buildings use a combination of gas and solar energy, allowing owners to switch between the two to control electricity bills effortlessly. Thermally-driven ACs are already in the works.
