The future of smart HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems is critical to the American economy with the cost of natural resources, especially fossil fuels, undoubtedly set to rise over the coming years. Regulations across the country have required smarter cooling and heating in new buildings, and hence new buildings will become more energy efficient. But for the millions of homes and offices built over the past decades, smart HVAC systems will become a necessary investment if companies–and consumers–are determined to mitigate their effects on the environment and, of course, save money.
Leasing an office or new facility is often an expensive and overwhelming experience for new investors. By the time the closing costs, as well as moving costs, rack up, most people do not stop to think about the bones and structure of a home. And when an HVAC system suddenly burns out and it is time for yet another big investment, the gut reaction is to buy the cheapest HVAC system possible.
But the purchase of the cheapest HVAC system, via the local home improvement store and which likely has poor temperature management, often ends up as the most expensive proposition in the long run. Just setting the thermostat at 72 degrees, which at first appears to be energy efficient, can result in taxing most HVAC systems as they churn on and off all day–and endure temperature swings as much as 10 degrees in either direction. A better solution is one with improved temperature variability that allows the HVAC system to run longer periods at a less variable temperature, and evenly cool and heat all rooms, even the spaces farthest from the system. More consistent operation at a lower power also improves humidity control from the air in muggier climates.
