The Internet of Things (IoT)  - the Opportunities and Impact of Connected HVACR Equipment and Devices.


Bill MacGowan of Cisco Systems will share some truly game-changing ideas with the CMPX mechanicals industry audience – everyone will see both impact and opportunity.


With billions of connected devices projected in the next 5 years, the HVACR industry will not be immune to the increasing expectation of their customers to save money, access new services and increase comfort. This trend presents opportunities for manufacturers and service providers to create enhanced services that will have greater value than the intrinsic original cost of the equipment or product.

Low Ambient Air to Water Heat Pumps - An Emerging Renewal Energy Heat Source


Well known hydronics authority John “Siggy” Siegenthaler, P.E. of the engineering firm Appropriate Designs, has a new presentation and new ideas to share.


When it comes to combining heat pumps with hydronics, the common approach has been to use geothermal sources. However, recent advances in “low ambient” air source heat pumps present a viable alternative, even in cold Canadian climates. This session will discuss the basics of low ambient air-to-water heat pumps and give examples of how they can be combined with hydronic heating and cooling distribution systems. It will also compare the performance and cost of such systems to that of a geothermal-source water-to-water heat pump system.

What You Need To Know About Changing Refrigerants and Refrigerant Regulations

If you, or your business deals with refrigerants, you need to be at Rajan Rajendran’s Keynote Breakfast Session. Rajan Rajendran is vice president, System Innovation Center and Sustainability at Emerson Climate Technologies.


The refrigeration landscape continues to change. The new generation of HFC refrigerants are ‘under fire’ as government regulations globally push manufacturers to devise lower global warming potential (GWP) products. Environment Canada and the EPA (US) have introduced proposed regulations to curb the use of high GWP refrigerants.


New refrigerants and traditional alternatives are being introduced with different composition and characteristics compared to the past and present refrigerants used today. The supply chain will need to change (again) to deal with these new refrigerants and their uses. This session will provide attendees with an overview of what GWP refrigerants will mean to the RAC industry, what types of new refrigerants will be used in HVACR equipment and systems and what the regulatory landscape that is driving these changes looks like.

Online Registration is now open for CMPX 2016, Canada's national show for the HVACR and Plumbing industries, being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building from Wednesday, March 16 to Friday, March 18, 2016. It’s the biggest HVACR and Plumbing show in Canada. Over 500 exhibitors will completely fill the 200,000 square foot Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building with an un-equaled display of New Products and the latest technology for every area of the HVACR and Plumbing industries. CMPX is a “must see” for technicians, contractors, wholesaler distributors, architects, engineers, specifiers, building management and other professionals in the plumbing and mechanicals industry. Online registration is open now at and the Show Committee has maintained the 2014 show pricing - the cost is just $10 per person when you register in advance!



The size and importance of CMPX also attracts a full roster of allied organizations like the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the AirConditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC), Mechanical Contractors Association of Toronto, (MCAT), the Ontario Plumbing Inspectors Association (OPIA), and the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), who are all going to be at the CMPX show as Honourary Sponsors. Many will be holding meetings and seminars during the show.



The Canadian Mechanical & Plumbing Exposition is Canada’s national trade show and Learning Forum for the Mechanicals Industry including: airconditioning, heating (forced-air and hydronics), plumbing, industrial, waterworks, water quality, piping, refrigeration and ventilation industries. Jointly produced since 1972 by HRAI and CIPH, CMPX 2016 will be held in Toronto March 16-18, 2016.



The Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada, is the national association representing manufacturers, wholesaler and contractors in the HVACR industry.



The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating, represents companies that manufacture, sell and distribute plumbing, hydronic heating PVF and Waterworks products and services.
