- The Smart Product
For a while now, smart homes and the systems that they function on have been gaining popularity. The HVAC industry has certainly not been immune to this trend. One of the most sought-after smart systems you can integrate into your home’s heating and air conditioning system is, of course, the smart thermostat.
Products such as the EcoBee SmartThermostat integrate flawlessly with your digital assistant. With them, you can create automated temperature settings based on your schedule and the weather conditions, and set your thermostat from anywhere using your smartphone.

- The Underdog Product
Up until recently, geothermal energy has been much underutilized in American homes. Despite the fact that Geothermal heat pumps have been in use here since the 1940s, today only around 1% of the US market is actually using them. But Geothermal heat pumps offer many advantages, and in 2021, shouldn’t be so overlooked.
- The Super Quiet Product
Of course, most HVAC systems emit certain levels of noise throughout the course of their daily work. This means there’s constant competition between suppliers over who can produce the least noisy model. Each year, they get a little more quiet, and we’ve rounded up some of the best.
Both the Carrier Infinity 19VS 24VNA9 and Ruud EcoNet Ultra Series UA20, which come in at around 56 and 54 decibels respectively, are great options if silence is your major objective. But sometimes, the quietest is not the best for your home, so it’s a good idea to shop around.
