Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems
The Department of Climate Change & Energy Efficiency has published the Guide to Best Practice Maintenance & Operation of HVAC Systems for Energy Efficiency.
It is is designed to be a change accelerator and encourage those working with the maintenance and operation of HVAC systems to focus on improving energy and water efficiency.
The guide covers:
- HVAC maintenance implementation process;
- building operation and documentation;
- financial and environmental evaluation; and
- HVAC equipment and efficiency.
It was developed under the HVAC High Efficiency Systems Strategy in accordance with the government’s National Strategy on Energy Efficiency (NSEE).
Even though the guide targets commercial buildings and some aspects are not relevant to residential strata buildings, the types of plant & equipment are the same.
