While reduced energy savings is the most popular reason for using new HVAC technology, many technology systems today offer capabilities that are difficult or almost impossible to interact with other systems.
Take for example, the capabilities of the new generation of digital boiler control systems, it not only provides more efficient operation. but the control systems offer remote monitoring capabilities. What this means, is that operators can monitor and modify the operation of boilers from practically anywhere in the building.
Safety is an area that is expanding rapidly in the HVAC industry. Safety is enhanced through a constant monitoring of a wide range of operating parameters; even system reliability is enhanced- this mechanical technology was unheard of 10 years ago.
This new safety enhancement in system operations takes place in all modern HVAC system
technologies on the market today. This aids the facility executive and his maintenance staff in assessing the status of his commercial building, and needs of any occupants. This improves overall system reliability.
Despite all the benefits and capabilities of new technology associated with HVAC systems, to be effective they must be compatible with existing facility “needs and infrastructure.” Even the most technologically advanced system will not be of much benefit if it cannot be used effectively with your commercial building.
Tips for considering investing in HVAC technology:
1. Consult a certified HVAC installer such as American Services HVAC installation service in St. Louis. This is a good place to start getting a detailed examination of your facility.
2. Identify the needs of your building.
3. Select the appropriate HVAC system for your application
If it’s a goal to reduce energy costs, it is recommended by professionals to identify systems and components that will provide the greatest impact. You can’t always upgrade all components. Layout an implementation phased plan and start with the high priority components, and high pay back value items.
