North America HVAC Controls Market is expected to reach USD XX Billion by 2024 from USD XX Billion in 2016 at a CAGR of XX% (Detailed analysis of the market CAGR is provided in the report).
HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) equipment needs a control system for regulating the operations of a heating or air conditioning system. Usually a kind of sensing device, this is used for comparing the actual state like temperature with a target state. Then post analysis, the control system draws a conclusion on what action needs to be taken.
Central controllers and most of the terminal unit controllers are generally programmable, meaning the direct digital control program code may get customized for the intended purpose. More complex HVAC systems used may interface with the building automation system or BAS to allow the building owners have more control over the heating as well as the cooling units. The building owner here helps in monitoring the system and simultaneously responds to alarms being generated by the system across local or remote locations. These systems can be scheduled for occupancy and the configuration can get changed from the BAS. Sometimes the BAS directly controls the HVAC components. Depending on the BAS, different type of interfaces can be used. Nowadays, there are also dedicated gateways that connect advanced HVAC systems with home automation and BMS (building management systems). It is used for centralized control and monitoring, enhancing the need to purchase more complex and expensive HVAC systems thus forming a major driver for the overall market growth. In addition, some of these gateway solutions are also capable of providing remote control operation across all HVAC indoor units over the internet incorporating simple and friendly user interface.
