The Future of HVAC
A couple of years ago it was hard to imagine a home with an HVAC system since it was a luxury reserved only for the wealthiest one. Nowadays it is hard to imagine a home without one. From then till now HVAC systems have come a long way following the latest technology trends.
What will the future brings us when it comes to HVAC improvements? What to expect? Is the future of HVAC green? Here is what experts think.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Energy-efficient heating and cooling systems are must in the future. Regulations and legislature will continue to push the demand for better efficiency. Energy Star certified HVAC systems could save you a substantial amount of energy and money. Also, they are environmentally friendly since they are reducing harmful emissions and pollution.
More homeowners will also use smart technology like the wi-fi smart thermostat, which can help reduce energy consumption – sending alerts to homeowners about usage and maintenance. Also, it may identify a potential system failure before it happens and help with energy savings.
Every HVAC unit would have the latest high-tech cooling features. Scroll compressors can give refrigerant extra pressure and use less energy. The latest models of HVAC systems will provide more power to cool your home in less time.
If you don’t want to deal with ductwork, consider a ductless heat pump or air conditioning system. These mini-split systems connect indoor units directly to outdoor units, and a single unit is designed to cool one room or an isolated part of your home. Also, they are a great choice for minimalistic styled homes.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling
A geothermal heat pump is an electrically powered system that taps the stored energy from the earth. If you really want to go green, geothermal heating and cooling could be a great investment. These systems are energy-efficient, cost-effective, reliable, quiet, safe, clean, and environmentally friendly.
Aeroseal Duct Sealing
Did you know 20-30% of the air that’s supposed to blow through your vents is escaping through cracks and holes in your air ducts? Over time, these cracks can wear and tear your ducts causing HVAC performance issues. Aeroseal can fix this problem. The process involves spraying a liquid substance into the ductwork, applying pressure to force the material to adhere to cracks and seal leaks.
