Why is HVAC&R important?
It’s crucial to everyone's productivity, comfort and wellbeing. Yet ironically, when it’s working well, that’s when people forget that it’s there and take it for granted.

What do you do, and what is the most satisfying aspect of your work?
As an ESD consultant, I make sure the HVAC runs smoothly and efficiently in commercial buildings. The most satisfying aspect of my work is when I find ways to improve occupant comfort while simultaneously reducing heating and air conditioning energy use.

What will you be doing to celebrate World Refrigeration Day?
I'll be enjoying a chilled beer after work!
