HVAC for Property Owners and Facility Managers – Industry briefing sessions

Heating, air conditioning and ventilation, or HVAC, plays an increasingly essential role in ensuring Australia’s built environment is safe, comfortable and productive. Maintaining HVAC offers economic benefits for property owners and HVAC maintenance contractors alike, while continuously improving the performance of Australian property.

Today, smart maintenance based on new data streams and analytics can unlock outcomes-based agreements that encourage teams to align and pull in the same direction. This ensures building systems are more reliable and more comfortable while using less energy and water.

To cover the latest advances in the maintenance space, AIRAH has updated its best-selling application manual DA19 – HVAC&R Maintenance. This guide has been the definitive industry reference for more than 20 years.

Recognising the vital role that property owners and facility managers play in establishing a maintenance plan, this edition of DA19 is accompanied by a free user guide. The guide is available online and as a hard copy and lists seven simple steps to contracting for better maintenance. It is designed to help owners and FMs confirm the performance objectives and criticality of HVAC systems to find the optimal balance of preventative and reactive maintenance, and arrive at the lowest system life-cycle cost.

If you would like exceptional HVAC performance to be part of your business as usual, come along to our industry briefing sessions.
