A report based on new research from the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) says that HVAC/R contractors have many opportunities to help clients lower their carbon emissions, if they're ready to expand their services. Overcoming Implementation Barriers to HVAC Contractor-Led Building Retrofits is based on research by Climate Action Services Inc. for the HRAI, with funding from The Atmospheric Fund. Research included interviews and focus groups with 100 contractors about real and perceived barriers preventing them from expanding their offerings to include envelope (insulation) upgrades and other renewable energy retrofits. The Canadian government has committed to decarbonization, with a goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. As the number of whole home energy retrofits increases, the HRAI says it will take “some training, entrepreneurial know-how, business diversification and, most importantly, a shift in business culture” for HVAC/R contractors to capture this business. The research found that most contractors are ready to move into the energy efficiency space, but that recognizing this readiness is a process of “guided self-discovery” to confront any psychological barriers. For instance, while 82 per cent of respondents said they had regular conversations with customers about energy-efficiency, only 50 per cent said they felt prepared to discuss carbon emission reduction, and only 60 per cent were ready to discuss fuel choices. However, 83 per cent of respondents believed industry should have a leadership role in addressing climate change. The report also showed that any hesitancy to move into the renewable energy space can be overcome by training on carbon issues and by sharing experiences with colleagues. HRAI hopes to develop programs and tools based on this research to help contractors become “whole home energy retrofit contractors” and offer building envelope and renewable energy services either in-house or through sub-trades.

SafeTraces, Inc. launches its HVAC Safety Verification Service for commercial real estate, education, healthcare and other built environments. This service will be available immediately for building owners and operators via flagship partners and a national network of certified professionals. Respiratory infections represent one of the most significant public health risks in the world. Beyond COVID-19, the annual direct and indirect cost of influenza and other respiratory infections has been estimated at over $50 billion just in the United States alone. Scientific evidence indicates that ventilation, filtration and disinfection are critical mitigation strategies. However, most public buildings lack the ability to test and verify performance of their HVAC and mechanical systems for airborne pathogens due to limitations in existing diagnostic assessment tools. Offered quarterly, semi-annually or annually, SafeTraces' HVAC Safety Verification Service leverages the company's veriDART solution. Developed with support from the National Institutes of Health and leading technical experts, the service employs patented DNA-tagged bioaerosol tracers that safely simulate respiratory emission of airborne pathogens in real-world spaces. Resulting data helps identify potential infection hotspots, verify ventilation and filtration system performance for mitigating occupational exposures to airborne pathogens, and inform critical safety, engineering and financial decisions with independent, science-based, performance data.
