Is HVAC/R something for the boys?

When I was a child, my mother always waited for me after school. She was a housewife, just like many of my classmates’ mothers. In the eighties, in a provincial town in northern Italy, there were few full-time schools and almost no summer camps. Today, thirty years later, things have changed radically, and when I go to pick up my son from school, in the mid-afternoon, I meet many grandparents...

Amazing smart technology: are we ready for the new Nerds?

Last night I was watching a TV game show: there was a 23-year-old contestant who didn’t know that the acronym CPU stood for the central processing unit of a personal computer. This seemed strange to me, and so I started wondering why. When I was that age, a little less than 20 years ago, a computer was an object of desire, whose hardware specifications, such as the processor, RAM and hard...

MCE 2018: innovation frozen by lack of HFCs?

Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE), held this year in Milan from 13 to 16 March, has always been an exhibition showcasing innovation in the HVAC/R business. Indeed, I have always appreciated the emphasis placed by exhibitors in presenting their new ideas and solutions in Milan, much more than at other important events that are held periodically in Europe, Asia and America. The 2018 event saw ...

Making sense of the uncertainty that the future holds for refrigerant regulations in the USA

To say that the next few years will be a smooth ride for the HVAC/R industry in the United States of America easily transitioning to the next generation of low GWP refrigerants, would be the understatement of the year. There is a network of potential pathways to achieve HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) phasedown in the USA; each one is a mixed bag of educated guesses, misinformed opinions and litigated...

Why improve when things are going well?

We all know the story of Nokia, which in the 1990s was the undisputed leader in the sale of mobile phones. They made the best phones, with a quality of reception that even now few others match. But then someone in the USA invented the iPhone and the company went into a downward spiral that it has still not recovered from. In the past, makers of audio tapes found themselves displaced by the...
