As we near the end of 2017, we’ve been thinking about what a great year it’s been for advancements in HVAC technology. Now it’s time to look ahead to what the new year will hold. Here we’ve put together our best bets for the top home HVAC trends to look forward to in 2018.
Greater Homeowner Awareness of Energy Efficiency
In the past few years, more and more businesses and homeowners have been taking steps to make their properties energy efficient. We predict that in 2018 there will be a move even further in that direction. Energy efficiency savvy homeowners are already aware that going green is not only good for the environment, it helps you maintain your appliances in good working order and saves you money. Our money’s on the trend to make your home more energy efficient becoming even more widespread in the new year as homeowners become even better informed and look to make savings.
Greater Prevalence of Smart Home Products
With that said, another big trend in becoming energy efficient is the use of “smart” devices. So we also predict that we’ll see a far more widespread use of smart home products. With the availability of energy saving apps like Homeselfie which analyse the energy usage in your home, homeowners will have even more reason to take the leap into the world of smart devices. We predict that smart thermostats like Nest and smart light bulbs like Philips Hue will become more and more popular. And we hope, the use of CleanAlert’s Filterscan Wifi - the smart tool that lets you know when it’s time to change your home air filter, saving you time and money.
Zoned Heating and Air
A zoned heating system is a modern HVAC system which gives you greater control over heat distribution in the house and we think these types of systems will become increasingly popular in 2018. By being able to turn up the heat exactly where you need it, exactly when you need it, homeowners can see huge savings on their utility bills. These types of system are so versatile in nature and benefit large homes or homes with floors or large areas that go unused for a good portion of the year.
