The Future of HVAC Technology


The HVAC industry continues to be dominated by technology. This technology includes virtual reality, field service management software, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things.

The future of HVAC technology will impact the construction industry. As a result, you should be aware of these changes and how they can affect your construction firm.

Discover what the future of HVAC technology will look like and how it can benefit your construction firm.

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality (VR) will be used to train HVAC technicians on the latest innovations:

  • VR is more cost effective than traditional training methods.
  • VR simulations provide hands-on experience with routine work and new equipment in a risk-free environment.
  • Technicians can focus on situations that typically are difficult to troubleshoot and fix.

Field Service Management Software

Field service management (FSM) software lets HVAC firms create calendars to cross-reference team assignments:

  • Inventory management features can automate material requirements, work and manufacturer orders, barcoding, and bills of material.
  • Task management components can schedule HVAC technicians, prioritize stops, track time, and manage workloads.
  • Technicians can easily move between jobs with minimal waste of service hours.
  • Firms can track costs and gain deeper insight into job profitability.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) automates repetitive, time-consuming tasks such as scheduling and assigning work. As a result, technicians can collect and analyze real-time field data to resolve issues and finish jobs faster. Also, HVAC firms can more effectively monetize services and gain additional revenue streams.

Sustainable Solutions

Demand for energy-efficient methods to heat and cool homes and businesses is increasing. One reason is that governments provide grants and tax credits for using renewable energy sources. As a result, HVAC technicians will install more solar-powered HVAC systems, geothermal and dual-fuel heat pumps, and other environmentally friendly HVAC technologies.

Internet of Things

Smart thermostats, sensor-enhanced vents, and other HVAC parts are embedded with sensors and software that connect to the Internet of Things (IoT):

  • The IoT technology helps monitor and manage room temperature and air quality.
  • Customers use dashboards to view their energy consumption and usage patterns.
  • HVAC firms can bundle customers’ energy consumption with service contracts for additional recurring revenue.
