Green Technology: HVAC in a Changing World
Posted By: 
Saturday, May 20, 2017

When we last met we talked about a few of the newer trends in HVAC today such as the new energy efficient units, home automation and customizable systems.  Today, let’s look at some future trends – particularly green technologies -- and some that are already here that are changing the HVAC industry.

On Command Hot Water Recirculation

How many times do you find yourself letting gallons of water go down the drain waiting for it to get hot?  Apparently, you’re not alone.  Estimates put the number at 12,000 gallons of water a year being wasted.  Enter “On Command” or “On Demand” hot water recirculation.  A pump is installed and connected to both hot and cold water lines under the sink or fixture and then with the push of a button, the flip of a switch or even the wave of a hand (motion sensors are wonderful things) cool water drains back to the water heater through the cold-water line so that hot water can be delivered via the hot water line at any time, night or day.

Thermally Driven Air Conditioning

As a low-cost alternative to conventional a/c units which are electrically driven, thermally driven a/c units use the evaporation of fluids such as water at low pressure to remove heat from the environment – an energy-efficient cooling method.  And, this can be driven using solar energy, supplemented by natural gas when running short, to eliminate electricity costs.

Ice Powered Air-Conditioners

Ice-powered air conditioners make ice at night and use it to cool the existing air conditioning units' refrigerant during the day, which decreases the amount of electricity used.  Once the ice melts, the system can revert to using the conventional commercial a/c unit. 

Duel Fuel Heat Pumps

Dual-fuel system is one that can heat your home using either electricity or fossil fuel. Above 35 degrees, the dual pump makes use of electricity to heat your home while at lower temperatures utilizes gas heat to provide better efficiency. While the cost can be higher up front (approx. $600 to $1,000 more than a conventional system), in just a matter of a few years all that can easily be recouped.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

A Geothermal Heat Pump is a central heating/cooling system that transfers heat to or from the ground. It uses the earth as a heat source in the winter using a looped piping that is placed underground.  Fluid in the pipes absorbs heat from the earth and carries it back up and indoors.  Conversely, in the summer, the system is used as a heat sink in much the same way. Estimates place the increases efficiency at 4 times that of a traditional HVAC system.
