There is a lot to look forward to where HVAC Technology in 2016 is concerned if 2015 trends are anything to go by. In 2015, the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning industry benefited from increasingly smart technology, and 2016 is likely to be a continuation of the same. Both contractors and consumers alike are likely to benefit from the technological advances in the industry. Contractors will have better tools to manage their businesses, and consumers will have better equipment in their homes and offices. Here is some of what to expect:
- Smarter designsIt was Steve Jobs who said the great technological design is not just how it looks, but how it works. He was right. The HVAC industry is one of those industries that have benefited from this. New technological design has allowed for machines and their controls to get smarter — behaving more intuitively. As such, the HVAC industry can expect the continued influx of smarter thermostats, equipment integration, and better sales and services automation thanks to loT technology in 2016. In 2016, as consumers get better systems and equipment to use, contractors will better be able to manage their business day to day more seamlessly.
- All-in-one software solutionsOf course, as the equipment gets better, so too should the software that HVAC businesses and contractors use. Two trends that will be expected as far as software solutions are concerned in 2016 include: the growth of software that is able to carry out a multiplicity of tasks. All in one solutions offer contractors to manage many tasks relating to their services. Software solutions are likely to be more multifaceted in 2016.
- Mobile solutionsJust as important as being able to do more with management software is being able to do so while on the go. Increased mobility is the future of the HVAC industry as far as contractors are concerned. In 2016, improved mobility is expected to be the order of the day. Software will be more compatible with mobile devices, allowing contractors to service their clients on the go/remotely by being in a better position to maintain equipment, accounts and so forth.
