The retrofit of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment could be a potential shortcut along the road to net-zero, says KEVIN LAIDLER, Sales Director, Middle East and Africa of Armstrong Fluid Technology.

To many of us, the construction boom that transformed a barren desert into a glittering metropolis may seem like only yesterday, but those once newly-constructed buildings are now more than 15 years old. Since then, we’ve seen the advent of Google, the rise of Facebook, and the introduction of driverless cars. With that in mind, how can we possibly believe that heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems installed before the launch of the first iPhone are still adequate?

The healthcare industry wrestles with the long-running problem of patient non-adherence. The consequences are waste of medication, disease progression, reduced functional abilities, lower quality of life and increased use of medical resources, such as nursing homes, hospital visits and admissions.
The built environment grapples with its own version of non-adherence. Buildings of all types and sizes, including healthcare facilities, are designed, constructed and commissioned with mechanical systems to regulate the indoor environment, in particular temperature and humidity. The challenge facility managers face is HVAC systems experience what is referred to as ‘performance drift.’

The profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the HVAC industry is being felt by all of us in the HVAC industry. The current challenges and threats have been well documented and, unfortunately, will continue to evolve over the coming days, weeks and months.
However, as with many tragic events, there can be positive changes that come from this tragedy. One of these positive changes will be the more rapid development and deployment of smart HVAC systems and remote asset management solutions.
With the introduction of the UK Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy, the number of companies needing to measure and provide usage data to the UK government will almost treble. Under the earlier Carbon Reduction Commitment around 4,000 businesses had to report their energy and emissions data, but the change in criteria will mean that the requirement will now affect around 11,900 companies. The decision aligns the government’s goals with the G20 Financial Stability Board's Taskforce on Climate-related financial disclosures.
The Armstrong Design Envelope product range includes embedded software for monitoring and reporting performance after installation which collects and reports data more accurately than a flow meter. So investing in replacement pumps (and harnessing their connectivity and in-built performance management technology) can provide the increased level of environmental reporting data necessary to meet the demands of the SECR policy, whilst making immediate improvements in energy efficiency.

“Start Right – Small Upgrades for Big Savings in HVAC” is the topic of a free webinar being offered by ”Armstrong Fluid Technology on January 8, 2019.
As specialists in HVAC, building engineers are used to tracking the regulatory requirements around M & E. Over the last year, however, it has been a regulation relating to the construction side of our industry that has caught a number of companies on the hop. I am referring, of course, to EN 1090 which dictates requirements for CE marking for the ‘Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures’.
This piece of legislation, which became law in July 2014, focuses on fabricated structural steel that is designed to be load bearing and permanent. It requires that the supply chain must have compliance, and it is mandatory for manufacturers (as well as some steel stockholders and distributors) throughout the European Economic Area.
