March 6 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

This seminar will discuss A2L refrigerants, their types and key properties with regards to lowering GWP mandates. We will reference the latest ASHRAE Std 15 and Std 34, and its current transitional status in Canada as compared to the US. The seminar will also cover the latest CSA B52 mechanical code (Ver. 2023/13th version) which was recently released by CSA. It will highlight key changes and amendments, new clauses etc. as compared to its previous versions, and also discuss the next steps towards its adoption into provincial building codes; a key step to successfully begin the A2L transition in Canada.
