Preventative HVAC Maintenance Made Easy 
         Angelo Rengarajah, National Sales Manager –  HVAC&R | Industry

Let’s face the facts: Reactive maintenance is expensive. Waiting until a machine breaks down isn’t just an ineffective use of time, but incredibly expensive as well. The money a company saves on routine system upkeep is later incurred in prolonged downtimes, expensive replacement parts and any other consequential damages that could arise from it.

Preventative maintenance combines original equipment manufacturer’s specifications with data-driven HVAC best practices to constantly monitor and preserve assets. Regularly accomplishing this allows businesses to yield the following benefits:
• Increased equipment longevity.
• Improved indoor air quality.
• Refined budget that allocates towards upkeep, not breakdowns.

Those three advantages don’t come without challenges of their own, though. Legacy tools weren’t developed with preventative maintenance in mind. Digital instruments like the testo 440 IAQ and air velocity solution allow technicians to seamlessly collect and store various sets of values that unlock the key to identifying problems before they arise.

The all Electric house of the future
Oliver Joss, Manager Renewable Technologies

Fossil fuels are in decline on the global electricity market being too harmful to the environment and becoming ever more scarce. The goal of the global energy transition is independence from fossil fuels as well as the use of alternative energies to generate green power. Approximately 62% of energy consumed in Australian homes is used for heating, cooling and hot water, so it makes perfect sense to focus on the conversion of these appliances first. Australian home owners need to future proof their homes to other forms of energy. Heat pumps are powered by electricity and generate up to five times the power used by harvesting natural energy from the air or underground for domestic hot water, central heating and cooling. This includes two major functions that will be particularly interesting for home owners of in the future: First, the energy-efficient heat pump is solar PV ready and can utilise excess energy generated by the solar PV-system. Second, in conjunction with a smart energy management system, a heat pump can be used as an alternative thermal storage device instead of a battery system.

Fans of the future: Efficient and Smart
Uwe Sigloch, Head of Market Management

 Air-Conditioning systems account for > 50% of a building’s total energy consumption.  Major contributors in air-conditioning systems are chillers on the ‘water side’ and fan systems on the ‘air side’. This presentation will give an overview on how to increase efficiency of these air-conditioning systems using fans and give an overview of their integration into BMS using digitisation.
