Your HVAC system plays an important role in improving indoor air quality and reducing air pollution in your home. When it’s running efficiently, seamlessly, and cost-effectively, you’re comfortable at home, no matter the weather outside.
With advances in HVAC technology, it only gets better! The best innovative HVAC features and functions help you save more by improving your system’s efficiency. You also get to enjoy more personalized comfort. For your next installation, here are the top innovative HVAC features to consider and watch out for:
1. Smart thermostat
A smart thermostat is a gift that keeps on giving. It helps you stay comfortable all year round while reducing carbon emission and utility costs at the same time.
It keeps you from unnecessarily cooling your home when you’re away or at work. When you’re using a smart thermostat, you can set a schedule when you’re awake or asleep, so it lowers the temperature accordingly. It won’t be necessary to adjust the temperature repeatedly throughout the day.
Smart thermostats give your HVAC system a break, reducing the need for repairs in the future.
They’re also easy to use. You can program smart thermostats through an app, controlling the temperature anytime, anywhere.
2. Geothermal heating and cooling
Geothermal heat pumps have been around for decades, providing the greenest technology for heating and cooling homes while reducing carbon footprints. With this technology, homeowners can save up to 70% on their electric bills.
3. Ice air conditioners
An alternative to traditional air conditioners, ice air conditioners reduce a building’s total energy consumption by freezing water in a tank overnight, so the ice is available for use the following day. Once the ice melts, the building’s commercial AC takes over.
Ice air conditioners aren’t available on a large scale yet, so you’re unlikely to find them in someone’s home. However, this may change in a few years.
4. HVAC Zoning
With a zoned system, your home is divided into two or more zones that can be controlled separately. Rooms are kept at the desired temperature while closing off unused ones. This prevents energy wastage. Homeowners save money without compromising their comfort.
A zoned system is doable even if you’re using a traditional HVAC system.
But for those who don’t want to install a central HVAC system, ductless mini-splits are an option, too.
In the future, HVAC systems will focus on sustainability and cost less to run. Homeowners are looking to reduce energy use and overall environmental impact, driving the need for sustainable systems.
