Most Recent HVAC Advancements

May 11, 2020

At JAMCO Heating & Air Conditioning in Deptford, New Jersey, we have seen a lot of improvements in HVACs. Your unit can cool and heat your home more efficiently, help remove contaminants from your air and lower your energy bills every month. The most notable recent improvements are outlined below.

Motion-Activated HVAC Units

Some of the new HVAC units are motion activated through the use of smart sensors. This means your unit will not turn on unless someone in your home activates one of the sensors. You can set your thermostat for a specific temperature when no one is home to decrease your energy expenditure and cost.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

We have also seen advancements in geothermal technology. Despite being developed during the 1940s, geothermal heat pumps did not become popular until recently. This is due to a combination of new technology and the concept of going green. This type of pump operates through a pipe in the ground. Once the heat is absorbed, it is transferred into your home. One of the best benefits is you have more hot water available in your home.

Dual-Fuel Heat Pumps

This type of heat pump uses different types of fuel for both comfort and efficiency. The most common type combines a gas furnace with an electric heat pump. When the temperature in your home is lower, the unit heats your home with gas. Once the temperature increases, the heat is derived from electricity. You can substantially decrease your energy use with a dual-fuel heat pump.

Ventilating Your Home With Enhanced Sensors

If you have floor, wall or ceiling vents in your home, you can have them replaced with vents driven by sensors. You can control the exact temperature of each room with an app for your smartphone. Your system will monitor the quality of your indoor air, air pressure and temperature. The result is more efficiently controlled temperature and improved air quality.

The Technology of Smart Homes

Smart homes are now a part of modern society. Not only can you control your HVAC through the use of a phone app, but you can control your lighting, security system and entertainment as well. You can improve your comfort level with the simple push of a button. Instead of getting up to raise or lower the temperature in your home through your thermostat, all you need to do is pull up your app.

The biggest advantage is you do not need to be home to make an adjustment. You can change the temperature in your home when you leave work or have completed your errands to ensure you will return home to your preferred temperature. You will no longer have to pay higher bills because your HVAC will not be running nearly as often just to heat or cool an empty house.

Fully Automated Homes

In addition to a smart home, new technology has made a fully automated home possible. You will be able to connect your HVAC automatically with your smart home. Your unit will be able to adjust correctly according to the temperature in each individual room for a much greater comfort level.

Thermal Air Conditioning

One of the latest technologies is thermal air conditioning. The benefit is you will pay a lot less to run this type of unit as opposed to a typical air conditioner. The system relies on solar energy, using natural gas as a kind of supplement. You will find this system is both effective and extremely efficient.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are revolutionizing the heating and cooling industry. This type of device offers you a wide range of benefits. You can program the temperature in your home when you are away to save money and energy. You can also program your unit to increase or decrease the temperature for when you usually come home. All of this can be accomplished by using an app on your phone.

The result is a convenient, simple and effective way to manage the temperature in your home while lowering your energy consumption.
