Where Is the HVAC Industry Heading in the Future?

Technology is becoming more integrated into our everyday lives, and we can all be thankful that so many things are more convenient and efficient these days. It’s a good bet that this trend will continue in the future, especially as new developments arise. In the future, technology is going to play a major role in the HVAC industry, even more so than it is now, and at Elite, we’re ready to connect our customers with upgraded systems and components.

Smart Thermostats

Many residents in Jonesboro have already embraced the idea of having smart thermostats. These are very simple to use and can be controlled with an app on a phone or tablet. Many devices can be controlled through anything that hooks up to the internet, including a computer or a virtual assistant program. A thermostat can be programmed with different periods of the day or night in mind. The temperature can be adjusted easily, even when people are away from home.

Automated HVAC Systems

Beyond just having a smart thermostat, residents can have air conditioner systems that can act on their own. They can have motion detectors and other sensors, and if it seems like people are away from the home, they’ll adjust the temperature accordingly. In the summer, it can get so hot here in Jonesboro, but the AC doesn’t have to be on full blast if no one is at home. Of course, a user should be able to override the system, so there’s nothing to worry about. An automated system could really make so many Jonesboro residences more efficient.

Geothermal Units

In Arkansas, we often have to keep our air conditioners running a lot in the summer, and in the winter, we have to heat our homes to stay comfortable. Bills can quickly add up. Geothermal heat pumps are gaining popularity in our area because they can result in long-term savings when it comes to heating and cooling costs. Geothermal heat pumps are relatively environmentally friendly as well. The basic premise of this system is that we can take advantage of the stable temperature underneath the ground. With this type of system, heat is taken from the ground in the winter and brought into a home, and in the summer, heat is taken from a home and brought into the ground where it can be absorbed. The heat transfer process utilizes water pipes and a closed system that is exclusive to a property.

Technology is helping our industry deliver better results to our customers, in addition to making systems more efficient and easy to use. If you’re curious about how you can make improvements to your existing system or how you can incorporate some of these ideas into a newly built home, Elite is here to help.
