HVAC (Air conditioning)

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems have become increasingly commonplace. However there has been a clear drive towards greater efficiency to meet the demand for more sustainable and eco-friendly units. Improving overall system efficiency and thermal performance is fundamental to this change through variable speed compressors or inverter technology. In addition, smart HVAC systems are increasingly interconnected and draw data from both internal and external sensors including external temperature, humidity, brightness, and even the position of the sun.
