HVAC systems definitely aren't the most glamorous part of owning a home. But there are actually some amazing new futuristic technologies—some in development, some already on the market—that will help keep your home the coolest on the block, whether right now or in the future.
How about a window unit that starts cooling your space when it senses that you're close to home? Aros Smart Window Air Conditioners are designed with a GPS tracker so you'll never come home to a hot house again. They can even recommend heating or cooling settings based on the weather and your budget.
If you hate the high energy costs that come with summertime heat waves, try the Aqua Chill system, which uses water to cool the coils on your AC unit and lower your energy use by decreasing the time the condenser runs.
If you've got a remote-controlled air conditioner but you're looking for more convenience, look into the Sensibo. This device lets you control the temperature of your home from anywhere on the planet, and it can save you up to 40% on your energy bills.
Now let's take a look at the HVAC systems of the future. The world's first 3D-printed air conditioner—built to your specific tastes and desires—is actually already on the market. This space-aged unit comes with an astronomical price of $6395, but let's hope that prices will lower as this technology develops.
Finally, the folks at MIT may just have made all other future HVAC systems obsolete. One team of students is in the midst of developing a wearable device that regulates your own personal body temperature. No more arguing over the thermostat at home or work—your wearable wristband will keep you in your own custom climate-controlled bubble.
We can't wait to see what else the future of air conditioning holds.
