Residential Air Conditioning – Evolution and Trends in Control & Integration

The residential air conditioning field is going through rapid evolution over the last few years. From the first window type and small unitary units it is rapidly changing to more sophisticated split types of air conditioning: wall mounted (ductless), in-wall, floor standing, cassettes and ceiling concealed (ducted), that better fit the customer's needs and interior design demands. 
In the meanwhile - the controls side is not staying behind and is rapidly progressing as well. The increasing demand for “one point control” of all household equipment requires a deeper look at HVAC controls development, especially focusing on the possibilities of integrating them with different Home Automation and Building Management systems (BMS).

Very true. Having a comfortable house is the ultimate goal of every homeowner. One of the most critical steps that you should go through in order to make your home comfortable is to implement an air conditioning system. With the installation comes the regular maintenance of the unit. On an average, normal life of a residential air conditioning system is around eleven to fourteen years. If maintained properly, these systems can run even more without any need to repair. In the state of emergency, professionals like HVAC service North NJ are always there to help the homeowners to maintain their HVAC unit.

Personally, I'm a fan of ductless mini split systems.
For some commercial HVAC clients, a standard heating or cooling system may not be the best choice. There may be issues with available space, efficiency needs, room configuration, or even with interior design considerations. A standard furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner might not be able to overcome these challenges. Fortunately, there is an option available that provides exceptional flexibility, efficiency, and ease of installation. A ductless mini split can be a viable option where other types of HVAC equipment won't work.

Very good contribution!
