HVAC systems have incorporated many technological advancements in recent years that help deliver greater energy efficiency. Keeping in stride with home-automation products, these “smart” HVAC systems with the latest digital features provide hi-tech comfort and you don’t even have to lift a finger, push a button, or swipe your smartphone screen. If you’d like a refresher course on the latest HVAC offerings and digital technologies, keep reading!
New HVAC Technologies
The latest smart HVAC systems still use a blower to force cooled or heated airflow through your home. Refrigerant is still cold as ice inside the evaporator coil, and you better remember to check your filter each month!
What has changed is the brains inside your HVAC system. Electronic monitoring and variable-speed technologies allow your A/C and furnace to maintain temperatures so precise, consistent, and quiet, you won’t believe your ears, comfort, or lower energy bill.
- Variable-speed blower motors ramp up and down to deliver the right amount of airflow to maintain even comfort.
- Variable-speed compressors operate quieter and use substantially less energy.
- Electronic expansion valves deliver the exact amount of refrigerant needed to maintain optimal heat extraction.
- A modulating gas valve increases or decreases heat output in increments as small as 1 percent.
- A dual heat exchanger utilizes nearly 100 percent of fuel for home heating.
Brains Behind the Brawn
The following smart digital features are the brains that drive HVAC comfort and efficiency advancements.
- A Wi-Fi thermostat regulates all connected HVAC systems. You may access, monitor, and change HVAC settings via your smartphone or computer.
- The Wi-Fi thermostat “learns” your temperature and schedule habits.
- Electronic sensors detect movement in each room and adjust cooling and heating accordingly.
- Zoning systems automatically direct airflow to occupied rooms.
Additionally, new digital features allow you to link your HVAC system with other home-automation features, such as lighting and security.
