London HEVAR, the two-day exhibition for HVAC professionals is proving a great forum to address the hot topics of the industry.
The exhibition's first day of seminars proved popular with visitors as key players such as HVCA's Jack McDavid chaired Wednesday's M&E sustainability session. This session highlighted why sustainability is so important to businesses.
Visitors got to hear about company quick wins in the form of five uncomplicated changes they can make to a building to see an immediate impact on energy performance. Insight into the benefits of different types of renewables technology was also given.
There was plenty planned for Thursday, the second and final day of London HEVAR which ran from 9.30am-3.30pm.
Thursday (September 27) witnessed more seminars namely-
1) a CIBSE conference addressing energy performance of building regulations.
2) ICOM Energy association investigates the rise of the condensing boiler in its seminar 'Getting the the right boiler for the job- high efficiency Vs standard efficiency'.
3) The future of renewable energy
4)'Out in the cold' -how kicking your boiler out can improve efficiency. It highlights the fact that US, Japanese and Australians can't understand why the UK mounts its hot water heaters inside a building.
Two taster sessions took place on Wednesday and will be repeated on Thursday, the final day of the exhibition.
Trox's first session - Cooling systems using carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, took place on Wednesday and also ran on Thursday, as did Trox's session on VAV fan coil units.
During the last few years the numbers of people in the industry who visit shows has been affected by smaller budgets and less time.
Day two of London HEVAR also had tube problems to contend with due to staff's safety concerns that led to the suspension of the Circle and District lines and congestion on the Victoria line.
As Kevin Sweeney from Herz Valves said: 'I would like to see more people come to these exhibitions.'
