Natural refrigerants “to avoid a new problem”

Since 1994, every two years, researchers on compression refrigeration circuits around the world meet in a different city to share their work and experiences on natural refrigerants, in honour to Gustav Lorentzen , the Norwegian scientist who rediscovered CO 2 as a refrigerant in heating and cooling applications. This rediscovery happened in the late 1980s, crucial days for refrigerants, as...

Goose-bumps rooms, energy saving and IoT

A report from the ASHRAE Summer Conference in Houston, 23-27 June 2018 I landed in Houston on June 21 and was welcomed by a nice and warm breeze blowing in from the Gulf. “Summer again!”, I thought, after the intercontinental flight from Europe during which I felt a bit cold, even though I am used to a slightly low temperature on those long-haul flights. Taxi trip. After...

Heat recovery ventilation and humidification: the new horizon in comfort

Heat recovery ventilation (HRV) systems are today becoming more and more important in the commercial and residential ventilation sector. These systems involve very compact air handling units, equipped with heat recovery, which introduce a stream of fresh air from the outside into the air-conditioned environment, while at the same time discharging the exhaust air. The heat exchanger,...

The value of transparency

How many times have we discussed something or argued with someone and then realised later that we weren’t completely right? Sometimes, we convince ourselves of things based on opinions or suppositions that then turn out not to be true. It’s nothing strange, it’s simply human nature . It is not always easy to stay connected to reality, because we like to believe that we know the...

A change in perception to trigger change - Andrea Voigt about women in the HVAC/R

In our first post about gender gap in the HVAC/R, we highlighted how in the USA women in HVAC account for a meagre 1% of the total. To help understand why this industry is unable to attract female talents, we interviewed Andrea Voigt, since 2009 Director General of the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE).    What did you graduate in? Why did...

What's the recipe for building a good product?

What is a good product? Have you ever wondered what a good product is? When I buy a product that I can easily install and start using, I can start to believe that “it’s a good product”. Last year I bought a home theatre: it suited my living room in terms of its colours and shape, I easily connected the 5+1 speakers using the coloured connectors, I connected it to the TV using the cable...

Ten findings on the Australian HVAC/R market

It seems that the characteristic optimism of Australians is also reflected in the country’s HVAC/R market. Whereas HFC refrigerant prices in Europe are rising dramatically, and the lack of a drop-in for R-410A is creating great concern among stakeholders, the general feeling in Australia is that the phase down will go smoothly. This was one of the conclusions I brought back home after spending...

Kigali, energy efficiency and control schemes - 2nd part

The Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol was signed on 16 October 2016, with the intention of phasing out HFCs, being contributors to global warming. Interestingly, a request to “the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel 1 to review energy efficiency opportunities in the refrigeration and air-conditioning and heat-pump sectors related to a transition to climate-friendly...
