We live in an exciting time. Technology has advanced more in the last 30 years than in the previous 300, and the rate of advancement seems to continue accelerating. Such constant innovation may sometimes make us feel like we’re behind the times, but when we embrace the change, we welcome greater convenience and overall quality into our lives.
The HVAC industry in Columbia, Maryland, is catching this wave of innovation. From fresh technology like home automation, to embryonic technology like ice-powered AC, HVAC innovation will make your home more efficient and secure and save you time and money.
1. Home Automation
Using technological advancements for day-to-day tasks takes human error out of the equation, which saves everyone money and time. Home automation through Marex Security, for example, connects you to your home wherever you are and does more than just keep your home secure. You can control just about everything in your household, from temperature to lighting, all from your smartphone or tablet, even if you’re halfway around the world.
2. Thermally Driven Air Conditioning
Innovation is all about making life more efficient. Chromasun, a company based out of Australia, has developed an air conditioner that’s powered by solar energy supplemented by natural gas. No electricity required. This technology is still growing, but we expect it to make quite the impact on the industry.
3. Ice-Powered Air Conditioning
Think of ice-powered air conditioning as the developing hybrid of HVAC. A company in California has built an air conditioner called the Ice Bear that freezes water in a tank overnight. That ice is then used to cool the building the next day, rather than just cycling cooled refrigerant. Right now, that ice tank can cool a building for up to six hours, then the regular AC kicks in.
Don’t let yourself fall behind, or you may miss all the benefits that come from continually innovative HVAC technology. To bring better HVAC tech into your home, call Griffith Energy Services at 888-474-3391.
