Making HVAC Upgrades? Always Keep the Future in Mind

While today’s new heating and cooling systems deliver increased efficiency, improved performance, and more options, future HVAC upgrades hold the potential to make even greater strides. As the pace of advanced technology accelerates, future HVAC upgrades will affect our indoor environment and daily life in more ways than ever. While some changes will arrive sooner and others later, here are some examples of HVAC upgrades that will enhance home comfort, convenience, and energy conservation.

Motion-Activated AC and Heating

This is one of the future HVAC upgrades whose time has come, and the principle is simple: Why cool and heat rooms that aren’t occupied? New systems coming online now promise to customize conditioned airflow into rooms based on occupancy. Sensors mounted near the ceiling detect the number of persons in the room and regulate the amount of airflow accordingly through adjustable vents. Motion-activated future HVAC upgrades ensure that temperature control is consistent with occupants in the room and that efficiency is maximized.

Dual-Fuel Heat Pumps

This air-conditioning function requires electricity for the compressor, while natural gas is a more efficient and economical way to produce heat in most regions. In the past, many homeowners have utilized separate heat pump and furnace units to meet year-round needs — a complex and less-than-ideal solution. New dual-fuel heat pumps are among the future HVAC upgrades about to become mainstream. These systems integrate both electric air-conditioning technology along with gas-furnace components in a single, highly efficient unit that transitions easily and instantly between cooling and heating modes.

Smarter Systems

HVAC upgrades in “smart” homes will automatically interact with ancillary components. For example, if sensors detect sunny, hot weather outdoors, the system will adjust AC output to accommodate the increased cooling load, then actuate automated blinds to partially close them and reduce heat gain through windows, as well as turning on highly efficient ceiling fans. Most HVAC upgrades will be human-friendly and respond to voice commands.

Since 1922, Paitson Bros. has kept pace with the continuous evolution of future HVAC upgrades. Contact us for more information about the latest and greatest developments in heating and cooling technology.
