5 Anticipated HVAC Changes for Building Suppliers in 2023

The HVAC industry has come a long way since the first air conditioning system was invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier. Nowadays, HVAC systems have become an essential part of modern buildings, from homes to office spaces. As technology advances, we can expect the HVAC industry to keep up with the latest trends and become more efficient, eco-friendly, and safer. As a building material supplier, you need to keep up with these changes to provide the best products and services to your customers. In this blog post, we will look at five anticipated changes in the HVAC industry that you should expect in 2023.

  1. Smart HVAC Systems
Smart devices have become increasingly popular recently, and the HVAC industry has not been left out. Smart HVAC systems will be an essential part of modern buildings in 2023. These systems will offer features such as remote monitoring, voice control, and energy-efficient settings. Building material suppliers should ensure that they provide products that can be integrated with smart HVAC systems.

  1. Increased Use of Renewable Energy
The use of renewable energy in HVAC systems will continue to grow in 2023. Solar and wind energy will be the primary renewable energy sources for HVAC systems. Building material suppliers should focus on providing products such as solar panels and wind turbines to meet this demand.

  1. Eco-Friendly Refrigerants
Refrigerants such as R-22 are harmful to the environment. As a result, new refrigerants such as HFCs and HFOs have been developed to replace them. Building material suppliers should focus on providing these eco-friendly refrigerants to meet the increasing demand for environmentally friendly HVAC systems.

  1. Increased Use of IoT Devices
In 2023, the Internet of Things (IoT) will play a significant role in the HVAC industry. HVAC systems will be connected to various IoT devices, such as sensors that monitor temperature, humidity, and air quality. These devices will communicate with the HVAC system to optimize its performance and energy efficiency. Building material suppliers should ensure they provide products that can be integrated with IoT devices.

  1. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality has become a priority for building owners and managers in recent years, and this trend will continue in 2023. HVAC systems will be designed to improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants such as dust, smoke, and allergens. Building material suppliers should provide products such as air filters and purifiers that can improve indoor air quality. In conclusion, building material suppliers should expect significant changes in the HVAC industry in the coming years. Smart HVAC systems, increased use of renewable energy, eco-friendly refrigerants, increased use of IoT devices, and improved indoor air quality are all anticipated changes we can expect to see in 2023. By staying informed about these changes, building material suppliers can provide the best products and services to their customers and stay ahead of the competition.
