Commercial Heating Trends in 2019
Overall, the expert consensus is that 2019 is going to be a
good year for the HVAC industry.
Particular growth in
area’s like data centers and the educational market will lead overall growth in
the sector which is expected to climb across the board as the reigns on capital
investment continue to loosen around the USA.
technology trends in HVAC are the area’s of connectivity and smart design, as
more and more commercial building owners embrace the power of building
automation and within that, investments in greener and cheaper, heating and
domestic hot water delivery and control systems.
Automation and Controls in Commercial Buildings
Heating and cooling
is a big expense for commercial buildings, accounting for 40 percent of the
electricity consumed by a typical building.
companies offering better incentives to reduce electricity usage during peak
times and the vast capabilities presented by the “Internet of Things (IoT) “,
more and more businesses are jumping on the automation bandwagon.
monitoring abilities and smart controls will continue to play a major role, and
this year we expect to see even greater involvement in the complex task of
building management,” explained Clay Steven, the manager of AHR Expo 2019, an
HVAC industry conference held by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating
and Air-Conditioning Engineers and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and
In commercialHVAC automation sensors, connected controls and equipment regulate a building’s HVAC and
domestic hot water system based on monitored data on everything from water
temperature, to occupancy, temperature, pressure, carbon monoxide levels and
time of day. The level of connectivity of sensors and systems will continue to
increase, with more and more building managers and HVAC professionals
implementing advanced energy management systems to create greener, and less
costly energy usage, while still providing tenant comfort.
So called smart controls (see Heat-Timer® Platinum Series Wireless
Controls) and smart design will continue to expand and deliver even more value
to clients with the implementation of AI in controls that can actually learn
the heating characteristics of your building through a variety of sensors. Then
these systems deliver alarms, and monitoring points right to the cell phones or
iPad of interested building managers. Systems like our Heat-Timer Platinum
Controls save operators money by both running your heating and domestic hot
water at maximum efficiency but also by cutting wear and tear on your boilers
and saving on expensive repair and replacement bills.
Heat-Timer®, the 800lb Gorilla of HVAC Control Systems
In the 1920’s, the
Heat-Timer® corporation made the very first heating controls for a nascent
industry, and has been advancing them through every disruptive technology since
Today we make the
widest array of heating and domestic hot water controls to be found, making our
systems the perfect choice for our HVAC installer/partners. With
full wireless sensor arrays, electronic valves, a remote monitoring app, and
self-learning software algorithms, there is no modern technology that does not
inform the operational capabilities of our systems. When it comes to energy
controls, Heat-Timer® is the one to beat.
Systems – What They Are and Why They Matter Large buildings like office buildings, schools,
apartment buildings, government buildings and factory buildings have some of
the highest energy costs in the country. And if you’re in the northern area’s
of the country, make no mistake: its the ‘H’ in HVAC that is costing you
most of that money. It’s essential that building operations managers
implement technology and systems that reduce these costs without compromising
on comfort or safety – this is where HVAC control systems like
the Heat-Timer Platinum
Series come in. HVAC Control
Systems are an Essential Step toward Building Automation Building
automation is about creating fully integrated systems to effectively manage
environmental conditions and other elements within a building at maximum
efficiency through an automated system. While full scale building management
systems integrate things like lighting controls,
sprinkler systems, fire control and security monitoring, by far…
