Smart technology is taking over. Sooner rather than later, house appliances will become interconnected and work as an adaptive system. You can thank the Internet of Things (IoT) for that. Technologies are moving toward this direction at high speed, exploiting the vast potential IoT has.
Its impact on the HVAC industry is quite notable already, as the newest heating and climate systems are created and designed to adapt to their environment and maximize their performance in ways that not long ago we could only imagine.
The revolution that IoT brings to commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry is highly important for the concept of a smart house. Numerous parts of the world are dealing with extreme weather conditions. The cities’ polluted air is forcing the residents to consume a lot of resources for a clean, comfortable environment.
So what are the significant changes that IoT brings in the HVAC sector? Let’s go through a few of them.
Monitoring the Climate in Real-Time
Being connected to the Internet allows your HVAC system not only to collect and store real-time data of your climate indicators but also to share them with third parties when needed. Technicians, engineers and customer support of your provider can immediately see your parameters and take action. Smart HVAC systems process the data in a comprehensive and manageable way.
Quick and Efficient Maintenance
The permanent availability of updated data allows the maintenance teams to act as soon as a problem arises, but also to prevent numerous issues from happening. Remote diagnosis and preventive maintenance are highly efficient regarding costs and time.
Remote Control and Customization
User experience is another perk of IoT controlled HVAC as it gives people total control over how temperature is monitored and scheduled. Personalized temperature and humidity settings are meant to give users an ideal habitat since it varies quite a lot from one person to another.
What is beautiful about smart thermostats is that you no longer have to navigate through a complicated system, trying to create a weekly schedule with only three buttons on the thermostat. IoT controlled systems have a user-friendly interface with easy to use dashboards that you can access anytime, anywhere from your mobile devices.
Continuously Adapting to External Factors
If total control of your heating and ventilation system is a plus, its autonomy is also a considerable advantage. The most recent models of climate systems can adapt to external factors, from changes in the indoor humidity to extreme weather events anticipated through the weather app. For example, some systems can predict a heatwave and start cooling down your house the night before. How convenient is that?
Power Saving Capability
Not only are HVAC smart units capable of adapting to your needs and external factors, but they can maximize efficiency by taking costs and consumption into consideration. A significant advantage of a central heating unit is that you can adjust the temperature only when needed, avoiding wasting energy. Your smart unit can do that for you and choose to work when the energy rates are quite cheap.
