How to find reliable air conditioning in Canada
A new report says that, in Canada, you should not rely solely on your own air conditioning and gas-fired heating.
Instead, you need to look to a variety of options.
The Globe and Mail reports that it has discovered that the majority of Canadians rely on one of several types of air conditioning.
“Air conditioners are used in more than 1.2 million homes and in more, like one-third, of all commercial buildings,” reads the report.
“That means that, if a house is occupied by a person with a respiratory disorder, they should be considered at high risk for illness and death from asthma.”
The Globe also notes that there are some significant differences between air conditioning that is regulated by provincial and territorial government and air conditioning provided by the private sector.
“In Ontario, the Air Pollution Control Act (APCA) allows for regulated air conditioners to be installed in residential buildings.
In British Columbia, the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSAA) allows regulated air conditioning to be used in residential dwellings.”
In Ontario, that means you can find the same level of comfort, convenience and safety that you would get in a commercial building.
In Ontario the APCA allows for air conditioning at home, while in British Columbia the OHSAA allows for it in commercial buildings.
The report also points out that there is a major difference between the two.
“The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is in force in the province of British Columbia and regulates air conditioning used in commercial and residential buildings,” it states.
“OSHA requires that air conditioner installations meet a minimum safety standard that includes an air-quality control unit.
However, the OSEHAA requires air conditioning to be operated from a remote location.
The OSHA standards require air conditionation equipment to be manufactured and installed in a facility that is free from hazardous chemicals and to comply with a specific operating schedule.”
The study found that in addition to air conditioning being regulated by OSHA, air conditioning is also regulated by other provincial and federal governments.
“Ontario has a Health and Wellness Act that regulates air condition and other equipment used to provide health care services, including occupational health and safety,” reads one of the reports.
“There are also several federal regulations and guidelines that govern air conditioning as well as occupational health protection.
In addition to these, there are specific regulations in British Colombia and Argentina.”
Another major difference is that in British British Columbia “air conditioning is considered a hazardous product,” notes the report, “and it is therefore regulated by the Occupation Health Act, the Residential Products Regulations, the Public Health Act and the Occupant Protection and Health Regulations.”
“As an added safeguard, B.C. has a Occupational Exposure Protection Act, which protects employees from hazardous workplace exposures,” the report continues.
“However, these occupational exposure protections do not apply to air condition systems used to heat residential buildings.”
The report notes that in the United States, air condition was not regulated until 1970, and is now regulated by multiple agencies.
In the United Kingdom, air conditions are regulated by National Health Service (NHS), the Environment Agency (EAA), the Home Office (HO) and the National Health Services Authority (NHSA).
It also notes a significant difference between air condition regulations in Canada and in the U.S. According to a report from the UBS Global Insights for 2014, air quality standards in the two countries are about the same.
The UBS report states that the health benefits of air condition include: improved sleep, improved productivity, reduced stress and anxiety, and reduced inflammation.
“As with any health promotion measure, the most important thing is that the benefits are truly measurable and not dependent on a specific air quality indicator,” says John D. Miller, chief executive officer of the Society for Energy, Environmental and Population Sciences (SEERS), in an interview with The Globe.
You can make more money selling air conditionors. “
And if you’re trying to make a profit, there’s no reason to do it.
You can make more money selling air conditionors.
If it’s a good thing to do, you do it.”
As for the report’s conclusions, it concluded that there’s a need to move beyond the idea of “a single, good air condition.”
“The most important takeaway from this study is that air conditioning does not deliver the health, comfort and safety promised by the industry and that air conditions must be regulated and improved in order to be effective,” says Miller.
