Market Size & Trends

The U.S. residential HVAC systems market size was estimated at USD 6.56 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2023 to 2030. The market is driven by the availability of tax credits and rebate programs associated with energy-efficient systems purchasing. Moreover, several governments at various levels have established standards to improve the operation of HVAC systems. The governments have set forth some standards that aim at the manufacturing of energy-efficient equipment, reducing environmental hazards, and carbon footprints. In addition to tax & rebate programs, several governments offer benefits for encouraging customers to use energy-efficient products with low power consumption or the use of renewable energy products and subsequently attract demand. In addition, reducing power consumption by promoting the use of energy-efficient and renewable energy products is another benefit offered by governments.

U.S. Residential HVAC Systems Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

As per the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, the revised tax credit would apply to residential renewable energy products till 2021. Approximately 30% of the total installation costs would be provided as tax credit benefits on products such as geothermal heat pumps and central air conditioning, among others. These aforementioned factors are anticipated to propel the market growth in the coming years.

Diverse climatic conditions across the U.S. can be considered as a prime factor favoring the consumer buying behavior for the HVAC systems. Furthermore, the U.S. is a huge country in terms of geographical size, and the weather varies in states, cities, and coasts. The requirement to control building temperature regardless of external environmental conditions and stringent regulations set by the country's regulatory agencies to reduce electricity usage and carbon emissions are expected to play a significant role in consumer spending.

The Midwest and South had the highest percentages of homes utilizing AC in 2020, at 92% and 93%, respectively. The West Region, which includes households in a range of climate zones where residential air conditioning use was 49%, had the lowest percentage of households using air conditioning at 73%. The apartments had the lowest likelihood of utilizing air conditioning. Apartments in smaller buildings (2-4 units) used the air conditioning 80% of the time, but apartments in larger buildings (5+ units) used it 85% of the time. Approximately 90% of single-family detached homes, in contrast, had air conditioning. This increased market share of central air conditioning shows that consumers are likely to spend on the centralized AC system.

Furthermore, remodeling residential buildings can lead to the replacement of the HVAC unit due to the possibility of an interruption in the airflow of HVAC systems and increasing running costs. Moreover, problems in HVAC can lead to poor air quality, which may cause short-term headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, and dizziness. Thus, HVAC systems need to be repaired and regularly diagnosed for optimal performance. However, sometimes replacement can be a better option than repair due to the cost associated with repair and the fact that defects can reoccur. Increasing demand for the replacement and refurbishment of HVAC systems is expected to boost market growth.

Integrating IoT with residential HVAC systems enables companies to review outside data such as the number of people in a room, humidity level, and outside temperature, among other things. This data is used by HVAC systems to determine appropriate temperatures, change fan speeds, and increase overall system energy efficiency. Furthermore, IoT allows clients and HVAC firms to perform predictive maintenance, which reduces maintenance costs and prevents system failure.

Product Insights

Based on product, the cooling segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 56.5% in 2022.Air conditioning is a system for controlling and regulating temperature, ventilation, and humidity in closed spaces such as buildings & vehicles to maintain constant indoor temperature and improve air quality. Further, refrigeration is the process of removing moisture and heat from an enclosed, insulated colder area to a hotter space.

Furthermore, technological advancements such as remote systems, IoT-integrated HVAC systems, and smaller high-performance units enable cost savings and enhance energy efficiency and comfort, which is anticipated to increase the demand for new cooling systems over the forecast period. Moreover, the use of IoT and electronic-printed circuit board communication with built-in sensors to improve connectivity is growing. These factors are likely to drive the cooling systems segment over the forecast period.

The heating segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period. Heating systems are part of HVAC units that are used to generate heat for building applications such as steam generation, vaporization, and drying. Heating systems, including boilers, furnaces, and heat pumps, among others, are widely used in residential applications.

Ventilation is the process of refreshing & replenishing indoor air to control and improve the air quality of the indoor space. Ventilation systems remove or control any combination of odors, carbon dioxide, airborne bacteria, dust, heat, and moisture. The ventilation segment includes products such as ventilation fans & ducts, air pumps, and humidifiers & dehumidifiers.

Regional Insights

The West region segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 25.0% in 2022. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the West region's population expanded at an annual rate of 9.2% in 2021. It accounts for approximately half of the overall land area of the U.S. Furthermore, according to U.S. Census data, the four fastest-growing states in 2021 were in the West region. Idaho was the fastest-growing state, expanding by 2.9% between 2020 and 2021. This growing population is augmenting the regional residential sector, which needs more HVAC systems. Thus, the growing population is expected to drive the demand for U.S. residential HVAC systems over the forecast period.

The market is anticipated to be driven by the expanding Northeast region's population. This is set to fuel the demand for U.S. residential HVAC systems in the Northeast region during the forecast period. The demand for residential HVAC systems is mainly driven by the expanding residential sector in the Northeast U.S. For instance, with roughly 54,555 mi2, New York is the largest state in terms of area. Pennsylvania comes in second with 46,055 mi2. The U.S. Census Bureau divides these states into two sub-regions. New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania comprise the Mid-Atlantic states.

U.S. Residential HVAC Systems Market share and size, 2022

Southeast region is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period. This is attributed to the rapidly expanding population and the subsequent demand for residential projects in the Southeast region, which is expected to drive the demand for U.S. residential HVAC systems over the forecast period as HVAC systems ensure good building air quality and create a healthy, comfortable, and safe environment for users while increasing sustainability and minimizing energy consumption. These aforementioned factors are anticipated to propel the demand for U.S. residential HVAC systems in the Southeast region during the forecast period.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Southwest's location and topographical extremes have a significant impact on its weather. Heat & cold waves, droughts, floods, blizzards, and even tornadoes are possible in the Southwest region. Growth has been a prominent feature of this region, which includes Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. These states have experienced significant in-migration in the last decade and are popular among retirees. The Southwest is expected to be a fast-growing region due to its pleasant weather and low living expenses. These aforementioned factors are expected to drive the demand for U.S. residential HVAC systems in the Southwest region over the forecast period.
