With advanced technology and innovative thinking, the HVAC industry is helping to modernize heating and cooling within your Jacksonville, Florida, home. The industry is booming, and there’s a demand for energy-efficient HVAC systems. The industry today must work hard to keep the tech-savvy population happy with new HVAC trends that make life easier. Here are the top three HVAC industry trends of 2018:

Real-Time Data

More HVAC systems are being run by smart technology and automated systems. And it’s important for this technology to have advanced data analytics to send information back and forth.

Advanced data tracking apps and software can help track system efficiency and signal when to schedule repairs. As a result, you can avoid costly breakdowns at inconvenient times.

Real-time data can also follow fluctuations in the energy grid, and service technicians can quickly respond to load shifting. With this information, electric companies can make adjustments to the energy grid in a rapid and responsive manner.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are becoming more mainstream as the population better understands smart technology. These connected controls can send crucial climate information via Wi-Fi. Homeowners can check on the status of their home’s temperature remotely and adjust the levels as needed.

This is very helpful for people who commute or travel frequently. It’s simple to make adjustments via a smartphone, tablet or computer. When you leave the house, you can set the temperature at a higher level. Then, you can set it to be cooler when you arrive home.

Zoned Systems

If you have a large home or rooms that you don’t use frequently, zoning is a great new trend in the HVAC industry. Zoning breaks the house into different areas and cools or heats rooms accordingly.

With zoning, an individual thermostat can be set per room and can control each zone as needed. Zoned systems are perfect for multi-level or ranch-style homes with rooms extending off the main house. Zoning can help to keep each area of the home at a comfortable temperature.
