Visualize a scenario where you are miles away from home. With a remote control, you turn the stove power on to make your dinner and adjust the HVAC system for cooler air to offset the stove’s heat. Upon arriving home, you go in a cooler home temperature and with dinner made.
Life becomes fitting for a working person where time saved gives more for precious moments of relaxation. It is, therefore, unfortunate that most homeowners are not aware of the industry trend and the benefits one gets from having an efficient HVAC.
If you are one who postpones investing in a new HVAC system, try to reflect on the innovative features and benefits the HVAC industry trend provides.
Why consumers resist buying a New HVAC system

Innovations developed as solutions to the experienced need of consumers. The same is true with the HVAC systems. But, people comfortable with the old models or are not aware of a problem-prone equipment may resist investing in a new HVAC equipment.
Consumers may argue that their reasons not to buy are valid. But, the problems are likely to catch up that holding on to the older systems become impractical. By being aware of the consumers’ reasons for the resistance may help you reflect on your own:
- No major problems encountered and the system works fine
- There is no need to buy a new HVAC
- The new HVAC system is expensive
- Not enough funds for a new system
- The system goes through regular maintenance
- Wait until the equipment breaks
- There are other priorities
The lifespan of an HVAC system may range from 5 to 25 years. You might think you still have years to go before the need to replace arise. Do not fall into this wrong notion as the efficiency of a system is not about the age but the runtime. Compare this to a car’s efficiency: it is not the years that matter but the miles. And, the longer you wait to decide on buying, the higher the cost of repairing and buying.
Therefore, if you own an older HVAC equipment and experience constant repair and maintenance, start searching the market for a highly efficient HVAC system. Fortunately, the industry trend provides fascinating and useful innovations for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning needs.
Industry trends in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
Improvements in HVAC systems never stop, driven by changes in:
- government regulations on environmental protection and cleaner air
- consumer preferences
These changes lead to improvements in the HVAC systems which homeowners should know as these could affect their home and lifestyle.
Improved Smart Systems
With the help of advanced technology, Smart Systems improved the HVAC design, data analytics, repair and maintenance, sensors that track HVAC condition, and the usage patterns. The big and small data collected by the system alert homeowners and contractors for repairs, notifications, and instant feedback.
Environmental Impact of HVAC
People are now conscious of protecting the environment. The latest HVAC systems use less energy that translates into an efficient performance and lasts longer than the older HVAC equipment.
Unknown to many homeowners, power and ventilation loss are health and safety risks. The new HVAC system provides a backup power supply to ensure a continuous flow of ventilation and reduce the risk of ventilation loss. Integrated into the system are powerful sensors that track and alert homeowners for air and lighting changes.
Mobile applications are one of those exciting trends in the HVAC industry. Control of your HVAC system now is no longer a problem even when you are miles from home. Mobile applications enable users to control their HVAC system remotely through their smart devices. You can also schedule or program the system for preventive maintenance.
The users’ top concerns when it comes to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are long lasting reliability and cost-efficiency. The design of the new HVAC systems provides solutions for these concerns through:
- the electronic air cleaners
- right-sizing of HVAC equipment. An inappropriate HVAC size installed in your building could cause poor performance and cost you more when in your energy bill.
- Heat pumps that trim monthly energy costs by 40%
The Benefits you get from the New HVAC system
For as long as the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system works, users tend to forget about their equipment. But, having an efficient HVAC system offers benefits you may not be aware of, such as:
Cost saving system
A high performing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system can save you thousands in fuel costs. The older models use up 65 percent of annual fuel utilization and lose the remaining 35%.
The new HVAC systems provide 90% fuel efficiency which benefits you and the environment.
Easy comfort controls
Thanks to the advanced technology, you can adjust your home temperature or keep it at a constant level, manage for consistent airflow, and control the humidity in your area.
Contribute to environment preservation
A highly efficient HVAC system uses up one-third of fuel compared to previous models. With less fuel consumption, this translates into reduced waste and improved conservation of natural resources.
Longer equipment lifespan
The new HVAC system increases the efficiency of the equipment which accounts for its long lasting life. HVAC’s alert system allows you to schedule or program preventive maintenance and help in keeping the equipment operating for a longer time span. It is this HVAC feature which most homeowners look into when buying a system.
A healthier home environment
The high-efficiency performance of the new HVAC system provides superior quality airflow. With a superior airflow, you can relax in a home environment that is free of air impurities.
Because of the HVAC’s installation which places it on the roof or anywhere outside the house, the equipment is not given notice until it breaks down. Know, however, that the heating and air conditioning system consumes 40% of your annual energy cost. If you look into it, the HVAC unit is the most expensive among all your appliances combined.
Waiting for the unit to break down before you seek a replacement or install a new and highly efficient HVAC could be too costly in the long run. Search the market now for an HVAC system that meets your particular needs. Or, you can discuss with a contractor on the best HVAC system that would meet both your preferences and home structure.
