Technology is constantly changing, and as time moves forward, these changes happen faster. The commercial HVAC industry is no exception. Not only is it important to keep on top of the technology side of things, but regulations also change frequently and consumer requirements are of prime importance.
What are the current trends in commercial HVAC systems?
The main priorities to consider when it comes to commercial HVAC systems are energy consumption, cost and how the environment is impacted by the constant demand for heating and cooling systems. The following trends take these priorities into consideration so that when it comes to heating or cooling your premises, efficiency, cost and an environmentally friendly approach are top of the list.
Smart HVAC Systems
Most of us will be looking at implementing smart technology into our homes if we've not already done so and taken the technology leap. Commercial property owners are taking the same approach and looking at commercial systems that work with wireless technology. They can utilize a smart system to help regulate efficient use as sensors that are implemented into the system help to determine the requirements of the premises. They work in harmony with the requirements of the building, meaning that they can detect trends in use. They can also identify if an area is being cooled or heated unnecessarily. These clever systems can carry out their own diagnostic checks too which can raise an alert if the system needs servicing or maintenance.
With an emphasis on the environment, green buildings are designed with energy efficiency in mind (together with a number of other features). You can find out more about green buildings in the following article.
What is Green Building?
A ‘green’ building is a building that, in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates negative impacts, and can create positive impacts, on our climate and natural environment. Green buildings preserve precious natural resources and improve our quality of life.
The HVAC system of a commercial building is responsible for a large amount of energy usage, so it's important that the system implemented is on-trend, with heating, ventilation and air conditioning that compliments the purpose of the building.
