3 New HVAC Technology Trends to Watch for in 2021

The beginning of a new year is the most common time to plan big financial decisions – including major purchases for your home. If you’ve been considering investing in a new HVAC system, consider these trending technologies; not only are they guaranteed to make life easier (and boy, do we need that after a year like 2020), they will also help you save cash in the long term.

1. Renewable Energy Sources Are In

Green is in for 2021 as more people transition towards sustainable building materials and HVAC systems that run on renewable energy. Homes continue to be built with higher efficiency standards in response to demand. These days, homeowners want high-powered systems that also reduce their energy consumption.

While sustainable HVAC systems are in, it is also expected that customer demand for equipment like gas boilers will continue to drop. You can expect to see new and improved, cleaner HVAC equipment running on electricity or hydrogen in the near future. Keep an eye out for the following eco-friendly innovations:

  • Energy analysis software for determining the most cost- and energy-efficient HVAC systems before installation.
  • Sensor-enhanced vents that allow homeowners to digitally control the temperature in each room of their homes using an app connected to smart sensors.
  • Dual fuel heat pumps are equipped with an electric pump that operates when outside temperatures are over 35 degrees, as well as a gas pump that can heat the home more efficiently in colder conditions.
  • Air-conditioning units that switch from conventional cooling to an ice cooling mode for up to six hours a day to save energy.

2. Smart Homes Continue to Grow in Popularity

Thanks to technology like Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa, more people are implementing smart integration into their homes. These connected systems act as a central hub that controls your home’s various IoT devices – including security cameras, doorbells, lights, and your thermostat. Programmable thermostats used to be the latest and greatest thing, but they are old news compared to the technology in today’s smart thermostats. For example, the Nest thermostat can detect usage patterns in your heater and air conditioner to better program itself. Most smart thermostats allow for connectivity through apps provided by their manufacturers, allowing you to control the temperature at home via smartphone remotely.

3. Remote Systems Monitoring

By now, you are likely aware of the importance of preventative maintenance in keeping your HVAC system running smoothly. But what if your heating and cooling system could run diagnostics and report via remote monitoring if deviations from manufacturer specifications occur? What if it could remind you when it is time to change your air filter? Technology that does just this is becoming more common in both residential and commercial HVAC systems. This equipment enables HVAC professionals to monitor systems, know when maintenance needs to be done, and make recommendations to improve your system’s efficiency.

There is no better time than now to take advantage of the latest HVAC technology. If you are ready to update your home’s heating and cooling system, contact Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning to discuss your options.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
