6 benefits of smart HVAC systems

HVAC, for its acronym in English, refers to a ventilation, heating and air conditioning system, we can say that it is a concept of air conditioning. Which aims to control the humidity of the environment, temperatures and also purify the air for the benefit of people’s health.

Willis Haviland Carrier created the first air conditioning system in the 19th century, which arose with the purpose of controlling and cooling air humidity.

Current HVAC systems are no longer only responsible for controlling temperature and humidity levels inside a building, but also focus on controlling the supply of air from outside to manage carbon dioxide levels inside. of the spaces where they are installed.

The intelligent HVAC system can offer a large number of benefits, both for the building and the different types of construction, as well as for the occupants of the facilities.

In this article we list 6 benefits to consider for the execution of these systems.

  • Increased efficiency

We talk about energy efficiency, this being one of the greatest benefits, optimizing and controlling temperature among other conditions. In this way, an increase in the efficiency of a building or construction is obtained, depending on the external conditions and the number of users who use the facilities.

  • Lower consumption

Coupled with greater efficiency, of course, comes reduced consumption. The cost generated by the energy of a building can be reduced by up to 35%. This represents a fairly significant economic amount if we take into account that 80% of a building’s total energy is consumed by these HVAC systems. Therefore, investing in smart buildings can translate into considerable savings.

  • Environmental responsibility

In accordance with environmental responsibility, these intelligent systems allow maintaining optimal and adequate climatic conditions, avoiding unnecessary energy expenditure. Smart buildings offer the opportunity to manage consumption in a much more consistent way that benefits the environment, reducing the effect of pollutants.

  • Improves the comfort and health of people

The intelligent system opts for the safety and well-being of users, and provides optimal thermal comfort. Therefore, the pertinent maintenance and sanitation actions must be carried out to guarantee that the air inside air-conditioned buildings and constructions is quality air that does not put people’s health at risk.

  • Increases the productivity and performance of collaborators

HVAC systems play a fundamental role in work spaces, since they allow the creation of adequate temperature, humidity and air cleanliness conditions for people’s comfort, if the workplace is intensely cold or excessively hot. The employee’s productivity level decreases and this affects their work performance. An employee who works in an uncomfortable place produces less and this is later seen in the results.

  • Easier maintenance

The fact that air conditioning systems are subjected to regular maintenance will bring many benefits, such as: less repair costs, maximizing the useful life of the system, greater safety and detecting any problem in time.

Intelligent HVAC systems guarantee the well-being, safety and comfort of people, and also take into account best practices that are positive for the environment.

“Constant reviews, maintenance and sanitation actions must be carried out, which ensures the quality of the air supply inside the buildings”
