Time flies and life gets even better as the advancement of technology continuously leads and shapes every corner of the world. These changes significantly affect consumer’s demand when it comes to the quality of HVAC products. Even business firms constantly engaged in research and development to create innovative and advanced comfort solutions. To help you stay on top of the game, read on these coolest trends in the HVAC industry.
R-22 Phased Out
R-22 is a type of refrigerant that contributes to the depletion of the ozone layer. This chemical is commonly used in residential and commercial air conditioning systems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) already coordinated with other agencies and organization to take action in completely phasing out this harmful substance along with other synthetic chemicals.
Consequently, starting January 1, 2020, the production and import of R-22 is prohibited, which means this refrigerant will become limited and costly to service. According to the U.S. EPA, you may continue to use A/C with R-22 and make sure to maintain it properly so you can minimize environment-hazards and expensive maintenance.
Motion-Activated Air Conditioning
Motion-activated air conditioning is the latest innovation in the HVAC industry. This smart cooling system can detect if someone enters or leaves the room, so it automatically turns on to cool the space and shut downs when it’s not occupied. Thus, it greatly cuts down your electric usage without compromising your comfort, which adds up to your energy savings. It also decreases the wear and tear of your system.
Are you looking for optimum comfort that also gives you peace of mind? Greenspeed® Intelligence is an ideal choice for you. This unique and highly efficient system operates quietly while maintaining your A/C unit at peak working condition and controls your indoor humidity level. It conforms to the heating and cooling demands of your home, resulting in greater energy savings.
Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) System
In VRF system, multiple indoor coils are connected to one outdoor condensing unit. It works at different speeds and controls the amount of refrigerant flowing to the evaporator coils to condition multiple zones in a residential or commercial space. You can save 20% to 30% energy because of its good zoning control and flexibility design. In a nutshell, VRF system provides consistent comfort and operates quietly. Its compressor unit can accurately identify each zone requirements and supply the precise amount of refrigerant to cool the space.
