With summer upon us, it helps to prepare ourselves and our homes ahead of time to keep us cool and comfortable during the hottest days of the year. By preparing ahead of time, you’ll be able to save money and avoid the discomfort that comes along with your air conditioning unit unexpectedly breaking. Innovations have been taking place in the HVAC industry in order to improve the efficiency of air conditioning systems to help you keep your house cool during the summer.
Individual Room Temperature Control
Most HVAC systems will warm and cool rooms based on a single sensor in the home. If a specific room needs to be cooled, but the rest of the room is at the desired temperature, the room won’t receive the needed air conditioning. With individualized temperature control, rooms can be individually cooled and heated throughout the year, making it more efficient.
In today’s era, these rooms and individualized air conditioning systems can also be controlled from your smartphone, making it even easier to keep your house comfortably cool.
The Ice Bear
There has been an innovation in air conditioning that runs air conditioning equipment all night in order to build a block of ice. When the day comes around, the air conditioning system never turns on and instead uses the block of ice, called the Ice Bear, as it melts to cool the air instead of the air conditioning condenser.
Geothermal technology allows homeowners to utilize nature to keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. By running pipes throughout the ground around the home, the system can extract the naturally cool temperature from the ground and distribute it through the warm home during the summer.
Heat Absorbing Walls
Specialized walls are being designed that were developed to help with heating and cooling costs throughout the home. These walls are designed to absorb heat more efficiently during the day and then distribute the same heat during the night when it gets cold. This helps to keep the home cool during the day and warmer at night.
