HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) is an important part of our lives. Every home and business must have a proper functioning HVAC system to run smoothly, and the technology of these systems has developed greatly over time. For the most recent trends, here are some expected developments coming in HVAC technology in 2016.
Firstly, it is expected that HVAC technology will get smarter as it develops. This includes such things as smart thermostat technology and smart equipment integration that allows contractors to automate their sales and service, giving them more time and financial benefits. As customer demand for smarter equipment grows, so too will the way in which HVAC contractors use this technology to manage their business.
Secondly, HVAC businesses will become more connected, and rely on multifaceted software to streamline and manage their business.
Recent trends show that it’s becoming more and more important for HVAC businesses to utilize mobile solutions when servicing customers, and the savvy businesses who master this skill will be the ones that get ahead.
Recent trends also show that construction will continue its recovery throughout 2016, which will lead to more growth and demand for new HVAC system installations for both residential and commercial customers.
In addition, HVAC maintenance and services will become even more efficient through mobile solutions and technology. As HVAC units become more and more complex, it will be very important to establish regular maintenance programs to prevent problems from developing. Like getting regular check-ups from your dentist, HVAC professionals will become more centered on this preventative care to ensure that the more complex systems that are being installed continue to function properly. This will also lead to increased training for HVAC professionals to ensure that they understand how to properly service the new technology. Research is also finding that technology such as mobile apps will drive successful service programs in 2016.
