HVAC Technology and Innovation Research
To determine technologies and innovations that will change the HVAC industry in the coming decade by providing a list of such innovations and a brief explanation of why each one was selected.
INNOVATIONS CHANGING THE HVAC INDUSTRY IN THE COMING DECADE
Movement-Activated Air Conditioning
This system is among the
air conditioning designs in the HVAC industry. The system detects movements through a sensor that turns off the HVAC or adjusts the thermostat. In simpler terms, the air conditioning only comes on when people are present.
This prototype shows the future of HVAC systems and how they will feature more "compact and portable designs that save both
energy and utility costs
The movement-activated air conditioning system has found its use particularly in "
where it's crucial to turn off air conditioning and heating to unoccupied rooms."
Thermally-Driven Air Conditioning
Thermally-driven air conditioning was developed as a "
to traditional A/C units."
This air conditioning system functions using
supplemented by natural gas, making it highly efficient and effective. It eliminates the cost of electricity, and its design makes it a more efficient cooling system than any other system available.
However, this technology has not been widely adopted and might take

help provide a more nuanced control over a building's heating and cooling.
They consist of "sensor-driven vents that replace a
home's existing ceiling
, wall, or floor vents" and can be controlled by a smartphone app. The sensors mostly use proximity or
This system monitors a home's indoor air quality factors, such as its temperature and
. While its design is relatively new, it has been tested properly and launched into the market.
Some other technologies and innovations that will change the HVAC industry in the coming decade include
ice-powered air conditioning
energy analysis software
dual fuel heat pump
DeVap air conditioning
