Every year brings new HVAC industry trends, and the tumultuous nature of 2020 has people looking for HVAC stability and safety in 2021. Let’s look at the emerging HVAC system technologies and trends for this year to find out what businesses want from their HVAC companies.
Emerging HVAC Trends
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the HVAC industry has had to adjust to a world where HVAC repairs and maintenance must be performed remotely. Commercial HVAC customers have also grown more aware of how their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems affect the wellbeing of their facilities’ occupants. These two issues have led to multiple HVAC trends for 2021:
- Increased focus on the Internet of Things (IoT): IoT is the way that technology connects to devices that were previously analog. Examples of IoT in HVAC include smart thermostats and HVAC systems. These smart systems connect to apps on smartphones and tablets. Building owners and managers can use the apps to control their HVAC systems from anywhere. IoT-based HVAC devices and components are growing popular in the wake of the pandemic because of their remote capabilities.
- Increased focus on indoor air quality: Once COVID-19 broke out in the U.S., people became very concerned about how the virus could pass through the air. Since then, businesses have invested in upgrading their air filters and HVAC equipment. They’re also investing in deep cleaning their HVAC equipment and taking proactive maintenance measures for their HVAC systems. All these improvements focus on boosting IAQ to make the air in industrial and commercial facilities cleaner and healthier for occupants.
- Increased interest in eco-friendly HVAC practices: HVAC customers are learning more about integrating renewable technologies, such as solar panels and geothermal heat, into their facilities. They want to find ways to improve their facilities’ energy efficiency and use technologies that are better for the environment than many traditional HVAC technologies, such as gas boilers.
- Contractors’ adoption of digital technologies: As IoT grows in popularity, HVAC contractors have begun adopting digital technologies to diagnose system problems and perform installation and maintenance. These technologies include computer modeling and artificial intelligence. They help contractors locate problems quickly and visualize them before they begin actively making repairs or installing a new system. When contractors use technology to determine what they need to do before they perform an installation, a repair, or a maintenance check, they can complete the job efficiently.
All these trends have begun emerging because facility owners and managers now prioritize their occupants’ health and safety as well as energy efficiency.
How Can You Integrate These Trends Into Your Facility’s HVAC System?
If you want to improve your heating and cooling system with these trends and technologies, reach out to a reputable commercial or industrial HVAC contractor like A&G Services. When you work with a reliable HVAC contractor, you can implement new technologies like automated building controls. These controls automate your HVAC system, alarm systems, and many other systems in your commercial or industrial facility. They also let you know when your facility’s air quality changes, when light bulbs go out, and when other systems’ changes occur. Choose an HVAC partner who can install these controls to reduce your facility’s energy consumption.
Partnering with an HVAC company allows you to integrate new HVAC technologies over time. How? When you enter into a contract with an HVAC company, they make routine maintenance visits. During these visits, your technician can make suggestions for system improvements, including new technology integrations. You can also contact your HVAC partner with questions about new technologies and practices to find out if they would work in your facility.
