THE STATE OF THE INDUSTRY
It wasn’t long ago when carbon-neutral buildings were considered more of a pipe dream than a possibility. Now, thanks to changing mindsets and evolving HVAC technologies, the building community is making real progress towards reducing its carbon footprint.
VRF – 101
Balancing tenant comfort, building requirements, and HVAC efficiency is a tricky act for property owners and building operators. And in pursuit of technologies that can satisfy these opposing needs, many are turning to VRF solutions.
TRAINING A CARBON NEUTRAL SOCIETY
Canada has made great strides in its bid to reduce carbon emissions. Its net-zero vision, however, relies on industries to adopt greener practices and technologies. This includes players in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) community who are at the frontlines of the country’s energy shift.
Indoor Air Quality – Ventilation is the Key
In the days of the global pandemic, building operators have one clear mandate: to protect their occupants’ health and safety. This has always been a priority, yet the need for hygienic environments has never been clearer.
Electrification and Energy Efficiency
Many Canadian communities have developed aggressive carbon reduction goals and have published their plan to get there. However, to get there by 2050 will require much more aggressive and proactive strategies beyond the standard energy efficiency and renewable energy push.
One Size Fits All Solutions Are Over - Climaveneta
Air-to-Water Heat Pumps will become the norm for hydronic systems and it’s time we start to learn how to design with them, as a one size fits all approach no longer exits.
