What Advancements Can the HVAC Industry Look Forward To?

The future of HVAC technology has been an upward curve literally since the first practical units to heat and cool homes came into use. The evolution of comfort control and a healthy indoor environment has driven innovation that routinely delivers improvements in performance, efficiency, and reliability. If anything, this process has only accelerated in recent years. What’s just over the horizon continues that trend. The future of HVAC technology is now. Here are some upcoming attractions.

Motion-Activated HVAC

Soon to be mainstream, a fully motion-activated HVAC system utilizes sensors in each room to detect occupancy. Based on the number of persons in the room, a central controller directs appropriate cooling or heating airflow to that specific space to maintain a pre-set “occupied” temperature setting. As persons leave the room, conditioned airflow is adjusted accordingly to maintain consistent temperature. When the room’s empty, airflow and temperature revert to the “unoccupied” mode.

Smarter Vent Control

Standard manual air vents are dumb. New smart vent systems replace them with intelligent air vents that automatically open and close based on the temperature and humidity environment. Vents communicate with a central monitoring thermostat. In addition, room status can also be monitored and controlled with a smartphone app.

Improved Air Quality

New indoor air quality options include air filters with nanofiber filtration. Nanofiber is a composite filter media that is two and a half-times more efficient at trapping smaller airborne particulates than conventional filters, with reduced airflow restriction. Also, a NASA spinoff developed to remove microscopic airborne pathogens on the International Space Station is now commercially available as residential units that provide a new standard of hygienic home air quality.

Quieter Comfort

New HVAC systems integrate a variety of advances such as scroll compressors, variable speed fans, and high-tech duct insulation to produce as little as 40 decibels of sound. That’s less than half the noise of a typical new unit in the 1990s.
