Smart Buildings to Drive Energy Efficient HVAC Sales.
Smart building isn’t just a concept now. In fact, it is a reality with rising number of population switching on smart buildings owing to added benefits such as better control and security and most importantly energy efficiency.
Often referred to as intelligent buildings, smart buildings are designed in a way so as to leverage various systems of a building such as lighting systems, safety & security systems, HVAC and so on with the aid of smart grid.
The main aim of smart grid is smart use of available energy resource. It concentrates to minimize the energy used and increase efficiency which is attained through load reduction, load shifting as well as load shedding.
In the west where HVAC systems are an integral part of any building, one of the main concerns is the energy consumption of HVAC system. Hence it is very important to make sure that the building’s HVAC system is as efficient as possible.
The need for energy efficient HVAC systems has led to development of a whole new range of product portfolio of Smart HVAC. Generally HVAC systems are connected onto the grid and comprise Smart HVAC Controls which are equipped with sensors that are able to monitor the surroundings and relay the information directly to the HVAC system for making suitable adjustments. These systems with functions such as setpoint management, optimal start/stop, pre-cooling, setpoint reset, schedule optimization, staggered load start and so facilitate in satisfying the three major requirements of a smart building.
Backed with intelligent components such as smart thermostats, smart sensors, smart meter and amongst others that are accessible through smartphone and web applications, smart HVAC would change the overall dynamics of traditional HVAC industry.
Also with western and European countries, both at local as well as federal level, aiming to mandate energy efficient HVAC systems by promoting policies such as tax credits and rebates, combined with increasing penetration rate of smart buildings, the demand for smart HVAC systems is likely to increase causing paradigm shift in the HVAC industry.
