Thermostats have gotten seriously smart in the last decade. While they’re a great improvement over traditional thermostats, smart thermostats still cannot affect air distribution across a building to adjust for hot or cold spots, leaving a lot to be desired in terms of making the home a comfortable place.
Visitors at the Titus booth did more than just look at the products on display; they experienced them. Highlighting its advanced technology applications, the manufacturer took attendees on a trip through its new augmented reality (AR) platform. Built to interact with its virtual reality (VR) platform that was launched a few years ago, the new AR program allows users to experience Titus products by actually putting them in a finished application.

Bob and Tim were on their last service call for the day. It was an apartment house with a heat pump and the weather was warm during the day and cool at night. The tenant had just moved into this apartment and was trying to get the air conditioning to operate to her satisfaction and she said it was too breezy.
It is my firm belief that airflow and air distribution is every bit as important in refrigeration design as load calculations. What good is a properly sized system that can’t deliver the air to areas that need it? Poor air distribution and airflow lead to stratification in temperature and humidity as well as poor heat transfer.
