How the Internet of Things is Revolutionizing the HVAC Industry
Building intelligence, smart buildings, and building automation are fueled by a common denominator—the Internet of Things (IoT). Connectivity between individual devices allows commercial building owners and managers to capture operational savings that were never possible before. These IoT-enabled efficiencies are opening the door to more granular levels of system control.
The commercial HVAC industry in particular is benefiting from IoT disruption. The days of having standalone HVAC units that can’t communicate with one another or a building management system (BMS) are fading into the past. Building owners and managers now expect IoT-connected systems that provide greater control over HVAC energy efficiency, maintenance needs, and lifecycle costs.
This whitepaper will help contractors, manufacturing representatives, engineers, and architects understand the current capabilities of IoT in commercial HVAC products. Data collected over Internet connectivity significantly improves HVAC performance through energy savings and equipment longevity.
