Issue Theme Deadlines

Supply and Demand


We sometimes get lost in the technology and legislation that we work with every day and forget about the people that keep our industry moving.  We are celebrating the organisations supplying the HVAC industry with a supplement focusing on wholesaler and distribution channels as well as featuring how the industry is supporting the training requirements to maintain our development.

Guidance and Control


It’s always helpful to have some review of the legislation that we should adhere to but it’s not so simple to keep on top of it. We’ll be reviewing the legislation that’s directing our industry, along with the control systems used across the HVACR sector, demonstrating their development and use.

We’ll also be publishing a refrigerant guide – a useful collection of insightful information.

Specialist Application


There are so many uses for our products and services, but we are not familiar with them all. We would like to investigate specialist applications such as the expanding data centre sector, DX application, heat or energy recovery processes, and ultra-low temperature refrigeration.
