In this blog post, we thought it would be interesting to share with you some of the trends coming up in the AC market. Some seem so intuitive, like, “Hey, why hasn’t someone thought of that before?”. Others bring a level of luxury so high it might be hard to imagine ever owning, but remember as products gain more manufacturers and competition, prices will drop, making the new technology more accessible to regular folks.


Whether you’re an early adopter of all things high tech and already have the Nest app on your phone controlling your thermostat from anywhere or you barely know where to change the battery on your home thermostat, it’s always fun to imagine what the future advances in technology will do for you. Here are the top AC trends for 2017.

  • Smartphone Based Thermostats

Home thermostat systems like Nest replace traditional ACs with the option to control temperatures using your cell phone or computer from anywhere. This offers the advantage of getting the home ready precisely when you leave work, optimizing energy savings. While you might be thinking this has to be expensive, more and more competition for Nest will come on the market over the next few years to lower costs. Expect to pay around $300.

  • Higher Air Quality with Built in Air Purifiers

More and more people are concerned about allergies, germs, and pollution in the air. Even though we don’t live in a smog-filled city like Los Angeles, it’s easy to see how adding air purification to your AC could make life better. Manufacturers are responding to the demand by integrating air purifiers that can kill mold and bacteria along with higher levels of filtration. These systems also neutralize odors in the air. Instead of plugging in a separate air purifier into one room, the whole HVAC system circulates purified air.

  •  Room by room customization.

Split air conditioners and portable units have been on the market for a while, but better split systems are the rising trend for 2017. Why? Many office buildings have the problem of uneven heating and cooling. In one area, everyone has on sweaters and cardigans, while another side of the office is sweltering. In response, more businesses are putting demand on split systems to create specific heating and cooling zone by zone.
