Some things never change. People want to feel cool and comfortable inside their buildings. This was true 50 years ago, and it’ll still be true 50 years from now. Other things do change within our industry, though. Today, we’d like to educate you on a few exciting trends we are seeing within the world of commercial HVAC systems.
What’s Going on This Year?
Over the course of 2021, many industries have been dealing with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those of us in the industry of commercial HVAC systems know this to be true. Numerous markets had to pivot away from their normal products in an effort to address newly acquired needs for their customers. Let’s take a deeper look at how this affected our industry:
Large Warehouse Space
With the rise of “safer at home” regulations and online ordering, businesses needed more warehouses and stockrooms. These places are very large, expansive places- not cut up into little rooms like a traditional office building. That makes keeping the entire space cool in the summer and warm in the winter more of a challenge, but it’s nothing professionals cannot handle. These massive warehouses need a strong HVAC.
More Efficient Commercial HVAC Systems
The desire for efficient units is the second big trend in the industry in the new year. Fuel prices are nearly double the rate it was a year ago, so business owners are attempting to decrease spending. More efficient units mean lower costs for owners! If fuel costs continue to rise, we expect to see more commercial entities interested in installing a more efficient unit.
Everything from your phone to your car to your house is “smart,” so why not your HVAC system? Smart thermostats, like the ones used for digital zoning, have revolutionized the HVAC industry. With WiFi, a business owner can manage multiple HVAC units from their phone or tablet. This convenience isn’t all there is to love. Your device will learn your schedule with the help of AI. It will note when you turn your system on or off, or when you lower or raise the temperature. It will then begin to mimic your actions by adjusting your settings for you. Ready to go home for the night? Your HVAC already knows to adjust the temperature for an empty building!
