logo Growth Drivers

  • The emergence of IoT-enabled HVAC systems

The combination of the HVAC industry and IoT enables remote appliance control, resulting in dramatically improved customer-centric services. The primary advantages of incorporating IoT into the energy sector include operational insight into HVAC appliances and possibilities to significantly reduce energy use. HVAC contractors, for example, can get their devices to continuously monitor occupancy within the facility by integrating smart devices with motion sensors. When there is no movement detected for an extended length of time, the system may propose, via app notification, that heating (or cooling) be turned down to reduce power consumption.

The controls may also readily include the most recent networking and AI technologies, allowing them to learn the tenants' preferences and adjust to their comfort demands automatically over time. HVAC manufacturers are attempting to improve their market share by providing consumers with smart HVAC systems. Lighting and HVAC systems spend the most energy in any commercial or residential property. Implementing IoT and enabling machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in various applications would aid in cost savings, resource conservation, predictive maintenance, comfort control, and healthy building performance. As a result, there is a greater demand for IoT-based HVAC management systems.

logo Restraint

  • HVAC controls are not widely used due to a lack of awareness among end-users.

Global warming and the need to conserve as much energy as possible have emerged as major global challenges. Advanced HVAC systems aid in efficiently addressing these concerns; yet, understanding of the benefits of HVAC systems and controls is limited. HVAC systems are widely used in residential buildings in industrialized countries; yet, due to the high cost of installing these systems, adoption remains low, despite the fact that the environmental benefits are significant. Setting up an HVAC system in a building is part of a subcontract awarded by contractors to a specialized company.

However, the bulk of subcontracting firms lacks technical experience and money, resulting in the installation of inefficient HVAC systems and controls. Additionally, there is a dearth of awareness among contractors regarding HVAC standards. Residential HVAC construction companies are uninformed of the most recent Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) regulations, which are impeding HVAC control adoption.

logo Opportunity

  • Growing demand for cloud computing in HVAC

Cloud computing aids in the storage of data, the execution of procedures, and the operation of enterprises by utilizing internet servers hosted in a remote place. It has turned into a catalyst for enterprise technology innovation. Contractors maintain numerous data in HVAC systems, such as information relating to HVAC loads, equipment installed in a building, proposals, maintenance operations, and others, which are developed in a range of separate systems. Acquiring such data manually carries the risk of data loss and may also result in confusion. To address this issue, a shared platform, i.e., cloud computing can be employed, granting access to everyone involved in the project.

A cloud platform makes it simple to keep up to current on project information, customer requirements, and equipment and control selection. The same information can be utilized as a reference in the future. Cloud computing aids in regulatory compliance, the selection of energy-efficient HVAC systems and controls, the analysis of HVAC load, the storage of sales data, and the maintenance of data for personnel.

logo Challenge

  • The possibility of COVID-19 spreading through the operation of air-conditioning and ventilation systems has slowed the expansion of the HVAC controls market.

The World Health Organization (WHO) conducted an assessment in 2020 and declared the COVID-19 disease to be pandemic. The COVID-19 epidemic has caused catastrophic global socioeconomic disruptions, affecting millions of people worldwide. Concerns have been raised about the spread of the disease through the functioning of HVAC systems, because the infectious disease can spread through a variety of channels, including air transmission. The virus that causes COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is thought to travel mostly from person to person by respiratory droplets created when an infected person sneezes, coughs, sings, talks, and so on. These droplets can land in the mouths or nostrils of adjacent people or be inhaled, which is far more likely when people are in close proximity to one another.

These infected droplets may theoretically be disseminated through an HVAC system and spread to other occupants, although this scenario appears implausible. The World Health Organization (WHO) has contributed to COVID-19 recommendations on ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Through the Global Heat Health Information Network, WHO collaborated closely with the World Meteorological Organization Joint Office for Climate and Health and the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to establish and update the guidelines. This set of guidelines is projected to stymie market expansion in the future years.
