As home and business owners, we’re all interested in creating a more comfortable environment. Luckily, the ever-evolving HVAC industry is innovating to help us achieve just that, and 2024 promises to be an exciting year. At Cooper Mechanical Services, we’re passionate about staying ahead of the competition, so we’re sharing the following HVAC industry trends that we anticipate will continue to grow in popularity over the next year.
Smart HVAC Systems
Integration of intelligent HVAC systems is no longer something we have to wait to experience—they’re rapidly becoming mainstream. Adjusting your thermostat from your phone is just the beginning; imagine scheduling maintenance automatically and receiving real-time insights into your system’s performance and energy consumption. We expect to see more of these types of innovations in the coming year so you can say goodbye to manual adjustments and hello to more convenient and seamless climate control.
Increased Adoption of Eco-Conscious Systems
With environmental concerns at the forefront, home and business owners are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and improve energy efficiency. This translates to a surge in the popularity of heat pumps, geothermal systems, and solar-powered HVAC units. These energy-efficient options help reduce your carbon footprint and significantly lower your energy costs. While the initial investment might be higher, the long-term savings and environmental impact make it worthwhile. Currently, there are several rebates and tax credits that apply to these high efficiency options as well.
Indoor Air Quality Takes Priority
The pandemic has heightened awareness of indoor air quality (IAQ). Many individuals are taking a closer look at the air quality in their homes and businesses. Pollutants like dust, allergens, and even airborne viruses can significantly impact our health. Fortunately, the HVAC industry is responding to this need with advanced air filtration systems, UV sanitizers, and ventilation solutions promoting cleaner, healthier air. Cooper even offers an included Aprilaire MERV 11 air cleaner on every forced air residential installation as a standard.
The HVAC industry is moving away from traditional refrigerants with a high global warming potential (GWP) to more environmentally friendly options. There will be a significant reduction in hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) production. This dramatic shift is driven by the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act, which is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. New refrigerants, such as R-32, are becoming more popular, although they may require specialized technician trainings.
