Speaker: Will Elaridi
The session will cover ventilation requirements for various commercial building applications, while following the ASHRAE 62.1 and 90.1 codes. As ventilation requirements become more demanding, we will cover ventilation solutions to comply with these codes. Such methods include: ERV theory and technology on the Lossnay core as well as the Premisys packaged heating/cooling unit and how they tie into the VRF system. In addition, we will cover the Premisys split system and what advantages it provides compared to the packaged unit. We will look at two methods of ventilation, centralized and decentralized systems. We will also look at two ways to connect the DOAS to the VRF system, coupled and decoupled connections. This informative session will provide a great idea on how to integrate the DOAS with the VRF system in the most optimal and cost effective way.
Speaker: Gary Chang
The session offers an introduction to the Air-cooled VRF concept, components, heat pump and heat recovery systems. The overview describes the features and benefits of Air Source VRF for different commercial building applications and explains the common strategies dealing with cold climates to optimize annual performance and comfort levels. Air Source VRF offers a lot of advantages over conventional systems typically found in commercial buildings. Come and see how it could become the optimum system choice for your next HVAC design application.
Speaker: Jocelyn Leger
The session offers an introduction to the Water-cooled VRF concept, components, heat pump and heat recovery systems as integrated with a range of heat sink formats, including geothermal. The overview covers the different commercial building applications, methods to ensure optimal annual performance and comfort levels through effective system design strategies based on maximizing heat recovery. Water-cooled VRF is a growing market and offers a lot of advantages. Come and see how it could become the optimum system choice for your next HVAC design application.
Speaker: Jocelyn Leger
The session will cover the evolution of different types of VRF systems that are becoming increasingly popular when designing HVAC systems. We are currently in an era where energy savings, comfort and meeting refrigerant concentration limits inside a building are very important. The current industry trend is to try to minimize the amount of refrigerant inside an HVAC system. A new innovative technology called Hybrid VRF can meet all the above requirements. Hybrid VRF is a great solution for high performance HVAC Design. In this presentation, we will discover the best of two worlds: DX and hydronic technologies combined together, offering simultaneous cooling and heating capability while allowing energy recovery.

Speaker: Chris McLellan, Senior Standards Engineer, Office of Energy Efficiency, and David Villarroel, Standards Engineer, Office of Energy Efficiency
It has been a year since Amendment 13 of Canada's Energy Efficiency Regulations were published. NRCan is currently developing Amendment 14 and 15 for this year. Come listen to the specific changes to currently regulated products and new added products such as commercial HVAC equipment.
Speaker: Martin Thomas, Project Engineer, CANMET Energy
The focus of Martin's Presentation will be some of the latest water heating technology developments from both North America and other parts of the world. You will see how water heaters are starting to evolve, for example, the latest in combo system development, their performance compared to typically installed Ontario space and water heating systems, and some future considerations that may have a significant impact on future combo system design. In addition to combo systems, there is the emerging gas-fired heat pump water heater (/combo) technology, water heaters integrated with renewable energy sources, and gas-fired systems that are capable of producing power as well as heat - that save on operating cost as well as energy use.
Speaker: Jeremy Sager, Project Officer, CANMET Energy
Enabled by the incorporation of inverter-driven compressors and controls, cold climate air source heat pumps (CC-ASHP) are being introduced in the Canadian marketplace. Topics presented will include: Measured cold climate heat pump performance; Cost of heating with a heat pump versus other technologies with a note on hybrid systems; An update on the forthcoming CSA Performance Rating for Heat Pumps; Development of an Air Source Heat Pump Sizing and Selection Guide.
Speaker: James Glouchkow, NRCan LEEP; Dara Bowser, HVAC Designer
Mechanical designers and contractors are challenged with open concept designs that leave little space to run ductwork, mismatches between heating and cooling loads, and home buyers with growing comfort expectations and the internet at their fingertips. At this session, an HVAC designer and builder will demonstrate how they can address challenges together at the pre-design stage using a new decision guide.
Speaker: Rudy Holesek
Times: Wed, March 21 2-3PM | Thurs March 22 11AM-1PM
Up to 25% energy savings for closed loop HVAC boiler and chiller systems by adding HTF Compact nano particle slurry additive to new or existing HVAC base heat transfer fluid with a ratio 1:20. HTF Compact does not agglomerate, erode HVAC system pipes or hardware and it is not magnetic. It will last as long as the systemâ€™s base heat transfer fluid.
Speaker: Lorne Sederoff
Time: Wed. March 21 11AM-12PM

Speaker: Lauren Berenato - Channel Manager & Sales Engineer
Time: Wed. March 21 | 1-2PM
This presentation focuses on the practical applications of the different plumbing codes and how to navigate through the varying codes while ensuring compliance when balancing a domestic hot water recirculation system. It goes through the different balancing valve options and Legionella prevention methods, incorporating the IPC, ASPE/ASHRAE, and NSF requirements.
Time: Thursday, March 22 | 9AM-10AM | Room 203D
Speaker: Andreas Wintzer, Biomass and Commercial Projects Manager
This session will include: an overview of GHG emission in Canada; a discussion of advantages/benefits of modern biomass heating technology and available project funding. Andreas will also cover system design best practices for small & medium-sized commercial biomass systems.
Speaker: Mark Norris, Viessmann Manufacturing Company Inc.
This session will cover: commercial condensing heating system applications; boiler integration into existing systems, commercial system efficiences as well as piping layouts and system design considerations.
