ARBS 2018, Australia's only international air conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, opens tomorrow.
Mitsubishi Electric Australia has launched a range of inverter-driven chillers to the Australian market. The e-series modular chiller range is designed to answer the need for controllable, energy-efficient cooling and heating, with reduced plant size and a host of benefits.
CSIRO has helped develop a solar-powered air-conditioning system for use at Stockland Wendouree Shopping Centre in Ballarat, Victoria and says it is a shining example of how to use the sun to cool buildings — making the most from the Australian climate.
Stiebel Eltron has released a range of hot water heat pump models to the Australian market. The range features two models: the WWK 222 (H) and WWK 302 (H).
Committed to providing optimum patient care, a medical centre in south-western Sydney needed a suitable HVAC solution to deliver temperature stability across a range of rooms.
New amendments to the Building Code 2013 require contractors on federally funded construction projects to maintain a code-compliant policy that stipulates how drugs and alcohol are to be monitored in the workplace.
The inIRt from Convergent Technologies is a universal control device for integrating split-system air conditioners with smart devices and home or building control systems.
The AIRSTAGE J-IIS Series air-conditioning system from Fujitsu General is a compact, lightweight unit suitable for a range of applications from small office buildings and stores to large houses.
Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre is one of two major retail centres serving the city of Mackay, Queensland, but was facing a significant problem when it came to energy efficiency.
Commercial buildings could cut their heating and cooling electricity use by an average of 57% with advanced energy-efficiency controls, according to a year-long trial of the controls at malls, grocery stores and other buildings.
AE Smith was recently approached by not just one, but three departments at Crown Melbourne to help them achieve a range of energy-efficiency objectives.
Recent heatwaves have seen Australian consumers relying heavily on their air conditioners, but recent research from LG shows that few people actually know how much their air conditioner use bumps up their electricity bill.
LG has released the Multi V IV heat pump 460 V variable refrigerant flow (VRF) solution. The model offers coefficient of performance (COP) of 4.34, made possible by LG's technologies. These include high-pressure oil return (HiPORTM), which minimises compressor energy wastage, and the variable heat exchanger circuit, which selects the optimal paths for both heating and cooling.
Hisense has available a cross-sector smart air conditioner, the power, temperature and humidity of which can be controlled and adjusted by instructions sent via a private message over Weibo.
Dr Nathan Groenhout, M.AIRAH, has been elected unanimously by his fellow directors as the president of the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Airconditioning and Heating (AIRAH).
