At Paragon, we feel like there’s always something new and exciting happening in the HVAC world. Whether you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, save some money on energy bills, or just eliminate the hassle of manually adjusting your unit, you may be interested in one of these new trends and the related products.

If you’re looking for a way to give your HVAC unit a tune up in 2022, keep reading. We’ve got the top 5 hottest trends that are taking over the heating and cooling world.

1. Smart HVAC Technology

Smart technology is becoming part of almost everything in our homes. From lighting to doorbells, there’s nothing that can’t be personalized anymore, and HVAC systems are no exception.

Smart HVAC components can be programmed to “talk” to each other to help make your life easier. These amazing smart units can track indoor and outdoor temperatures, brightness, humidity, and more while adjusting their levels and settings on their own.

For example, if a room is receiving a lot of direct sunlight in the summer months, a smart HVAC system will cool that room at a higher rate to ensure the temperatures from room to room stay consistent.

2. Eco-Friendly Features

Both residential homeowners and commercial building owners are interested in reducing their carbon footprint. High energy costs are never welcomed, and new technology can help. Smarter, greener technology can prove to be both cost-effective and socially responsible.

Geothermal heating and cooling methods, like the use of solar panels and wind turbines, are also becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to reduce energy costs.

3. HVAC Automation Options


The days of having to manually adjust your HVAC system can be over with some of the new automation features on many 2022 units. These units use their smart technology to adjust their settings and temperatures throughout the day and season, so you never have to worry about resetting the thermostat.

4. Ductless HVAC Systems

Ductless HVAC systems are the perfect solution if your space lacks ducts and you don’t want to spend an outrageous amount of money installing new ductwork. They also work well with infrastructure that has holes and gaps in the pre-existing ductwork.

Rather than paying for expensive new ducts, replacements, or repairs, you can choose a ductless HVAC system that simplifies the installation process and makes it much more affordable.

5. Heat Pumps

Eco-friendly heat pumps are seeing a rise in popularity as consumers become more interested in reducing their carbon footprint, saving money, and adding air conditioning to their homes, especially in the Pacific Northwest. Since heat pumps transfer heat using refrigerant, they are far more efficient than other heating methods in moderate to cool weather.

Heat pumps are a great supplement to an inefficient furnace. The heat pump will help you save on your energy bills on all but the coldest days, and your furnace can kick in when it’s well below freezing.
