Trends that are heating up the global HVAC industry right now…
As a Canadian HVAC contractor, you are likely already adapting your business to meet consumer demands. Four global trends that HVAC contractors in Canada should be aware of include:
“Trend #1: Healthy Buildings Matter
Growing knowledge of how indoor environments can seriously affect how people think, act and feel is increasing demand for healthy buildings. In fact, in a recent survey of 140 facility executives by Structure Tone, 92 percent described building wellness features as “essential, mainstream or an emerging need.”3
“Trend #2: Energy Efficiency is Critical
Buildings are power hungry. They consume roughly 40 percent of the total energy used in the U.S. and more than 70 percent of the country’s electricity, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. On top of that, they’re incredibly inefficient as they waste about 30 percent of their total energy intake.”4
“Trend #3: Sustainability is a Core Building Principle
No longer a fringe interest, sustainability is a core principle driving building design and construction. Why? Because with…energy-efficient HVAC technologies…, sustainable buildings not only reduce energy consumption and protect the environment, they also cut operating costs and save money for building owners and tenants.”5
“Trend #4: Smart HVAC Technologies are on the Rise
In order to create healthy buildings, reduce energy consumption, save money and strengthen sustainability, a growing number of building professionals are turning to smart HVAC technologies. These include controls, advanced monitoring systems, building automation systems, smart thermostats and Internet of Things (IoT) lighting controls, to name just a few.”6
As any business owner knows, it’s vitally important to be aware of emerging trends. Knowledge helps you adapt your operations to meet the changing needs of your clients. Knowing that your business is aligned with the very best insurance coverage can help you focus on the bigger picture.
