System Improves HVAC Performance Using AI
Artificial intelligence is coming to HVAC, and one company plans on bringing a proven product in this area to the U.S. market. Ecopilot came to North America a few years ago and has already been used in several projects in Canada. Its U.S. roll out has been delayed but should resume in the near future.
The system is based on research from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. The main company remains headquartered there. Ecopilot spent eight years, from 2001 to 2008, developing the software to harness building thermodynamics for heating and cooling, said Jennie King, director of sales and marketing for Ecopilot Canada/USA.
