Top 4 HVAC Technologies Reshaping Construction Industry

By Michael Rosario, Construction Tech Review | Saturday, December 04, 2021

HVAC systems play a vital role in providing comfort and safety for homes. The innovative approaches in HVAC are cost-effective and more efficient than ever before.

FREMONT, CA: Living in a world of varying temperatures, thermal comfort is desired by a human. The HVAC industry has been in the picture since the first home heating and cooling units were invented. HVAC has helped provide good air quality and thermal comfort for people over the years. Let's have a look at some of the latest innovations in HVAC technology.

Smart Thermostats

As technology continues to develop, the thermostats do too. The traditional way of operating the furnace by the human workforce is now gone. This is an era where one can create a schedule with the smart thermostat, which monitors and dictates the temperature based on the time and day of the week. Many thermostats can even track the movements taking place in the house. As a result, they help to save money in many ways.

HVAC Zoning

Cooling or heating a bigger home used to be expensive. By utilizing HVAC zoning,  it becomes easy to control the different parts of the home separately. This will benefit the users from minimizing the time taken for heating the whole house and unwanted places and corners, which was done traditionally. As a result, one can enjoy greater efficiency and more affordable energy bills.

Geothermal System

The geothermal system maximizes energy efficiency while leveraging the latest HVAC technology. The HVAC units use natural and renewable energy sources to heat a home during the winter season. In summer, a geothermal system pulls heat from the indoors and transports to the ground for cooling. The geothermal units make no noise and are dependable and environmentally sustainable.

Air Quality Solutions

Apart from the more efficient HVAC units, current homeowners also have plenty of options available to improve air quality. The air purifiers eliminate unhealthy pathogens from the air, while air humidifiers add humidity to it. Advanced CO monitors actively check the air for hazardous carbon monoxide levels.
