Taking care of our planet is becoming a top priority across many industries, including HVAC. There is a need for greater energy efficiency and implementation of different sustainable sources in the heating and cooling space. Also, more customers are demanding sustainable solutions for their heating and air conditioning needs. This means that expanding your customer base could be difficult without offering a range of eco-friendly HVAC options in the future.
What are the most modern sustainable HVAC technologies?
The heating and air conditioning industry continues to evolve, and many of these efforts deal with sustainability. Recent breakthroughs in smart technologies and renewable energy are increasing the efficiency of HVAC systems. However, the innovations do not stop here. Read on to learn about several other advancements in sustainable HVAC.
Most people are familiar with active solar technology that uses panels to collect solar power and transform it into electricity. Some HVAC systems use this technology, while others use passive solar technologies. The roof, windows, floors, and walls of a building can collect the energy of the sun and transform it into thermal energy, which can be used for heating.
Geothermal heating and air conditioning systems use the energy of the Earth to operate by implementing an underground loop piping system. During winter, the fluid in the piping absorbs heat and carries it to your clients’ property, while in the summer it uses that heat to generate energy for powering the AC.
Hydronic heating has been in existence for some time, but it has only recently started gaining attention. These systems use hot water that flows through radiators, heating the space. However, modern hydronic systems use boilers heated with solar energy and under-floor piping for heating commercial and residential properties.

These air conditioning systems transform water into ice during the night, when the energy network is not under constant stress. During daytime, the AC system uses this ice to cool your clients’ properties. This way, the air conditioner doesn’t have to run the compressor and results in far less energy consumption when compared to standard units.
DeVAP, or Desiccant Evaporative Air Conditioner is a cutting-edge HVAC technology. It combines the dehumidifying power of liquid desiccants and the cooling potential of evaporation to provide low-cost and eco-friendly air conditioning.
This system could represent the future of construction. Ceilings receive different types of sensors that can detect carbon dioxide, temperature, occupancy, and motion. By assessing this data and sending it further through the integrated system, they allow for enhanced control and automation of different systems, including HVAC, lighting, and security.
