With winter in full swing and the UK energy crisis ongoing, it’s time to start thinking about the heating and cooling system you use in your home and whether or not it’s the best and most efficient choice for the job.
With more of a priority on energy efficiency than ever before due to both rising costs and climate change, even those with money to burn are looking to keep their consumption down in 2023 – but few are willing to compromise on convenience and luxury in order to do so – so what’s the solution if that’s you?
Thankfully, the latest and greatest home heating and cooling systems come with smart capabilities designed not only to help you to keep your energy consumption in check, but to make your life easier by allowing you to control them from anywhere via a smartphone mobile app. So, if you forget to turn your heating off when you leave the house, then you can easily do it whilst out and about – although one of the best things about the most advanced systems is that you won’t need to, because they sense when you’re no longer at home and do it for you.
With the coldest months of winter ahead, if you’re keen to keep warm without having to stress or are looking ahead to another potential heatwave this summer and considering your cooling options, then you might be wondering where to start. Here, we look at the biggest high-end home heating and cooling trends to keep an eye on for 2023.
MVHR systems are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their ability to provide fresh, filtered air into your home whilst simultaneously retaining the majority of the energy that has already been used in heating it.
MVHR systems are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their ability to provide fresh, filtered air into your home whilst simultaneously retaining the majority of the energy that has already been used in heating it. This type of system works by extracting moist air from each room and recovering heat that is usually lost from it, thus making it an efficient solution when it comes to the ventilation requirements of your abode.
An MVH system both supplies and extracts air throughout your entire home, and is a great way to reduce its heating and cooling demands, thus keeping bills in check and reducing your carbon footprint in the process.
Geothermal is set to take off in a major way in 2023, so if you’re yet to become acquainted with it, then now is the time to do so.
Geothermal is set to take off in a major way in 2023, so if you’re yet to become acquainted with it, then now is the time to do so. An exciting alternative to traditional furnaces, they are widely thought to offer improved energy efficiency for homes, with residential pumps using underground pipes – called loops – to extract heat from deep inside the earth. Whatever the weather or the season, underground temperatures remain consistent, to geothermal pumps continue to work effectively year round, and because the loops contain a solution that absorbs heat and sends it directly to the pump, it’s an intelligent system that as well as helping keep energy costs down, can help to reduce your environmental impact, too. So, if you’re keen to live a greener lifestyle in 2023, then look no further.
Smart heating and cooling systems will continue to be a major trend throughout 2023, and likely well beyond.
Smart heating and cooling systems will continue to be a major trend throughout 2023, and likely well beyond. In fact, they are gradually becoming the norm in high-end homes, and put residents fully in control of their energy usage anywhere, anytime.
WiFi enabled smart technology connects your heating and cooling system directly to your mobile phone, and the connected app will track your energy usage and learn your daily patterns in order to provide a fully customised heating and cooling schedule so you don’t have to worry about turning it on and off. If you like the idea of your home already being nice and warm when you arrive home and the peace of mind that comes with knowing it will switch itself off when it knows you won’t be around for a while then you’ll love this – but if the thought of handing over control entirely leaves you feeling anxious, then worry not, because you can override any of your smart system’s decisions whenever you like, as well as creating your own schedule and making tweaks and adjustments as and when suits you.
