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...

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...

Amazing smart technology: are we ready for the new Nerds?

Last night I was watching a TV game show: there was a 23-year-old contestant who didn’t know that the acronym CPU stood for the central processing unit of a personal computer. This seemed strange to me, and so I started wondering why. When I was that age, a little less than 20 years ago, a computer was an object of desire, whose hardware specifications, such as the processor, RAM and hard...

From the Internet of Things to Intelligence of Things

The increasing tendency to have connected devices that provide remote access to installations through monitoring systems is paving the way for the systematic collection of vast amounts of data. In the HVAC/R sector in particular, unit variables, control and operating parameters, such as valve position, set point, compressor status, water/air temperatures and so on, if appropriately recorded...
