Executive Summary

The Home Performance Stakeholder Council aspires to assist industry stakeholders involved in residential renovation in delivering exceptional services and solutions, priced at affordable levels for consumers, to support the growth of a long-term, sustainable market for home performance related activities that significantly reduce energy use and carbon emissions in homes across the province while enhancing building durability, occupant comfort, and health.

To this end, the HPSC has established six Sector Councils (HVAC, Fenestration, Insulation, Renovation,
Energy Advisors, and Utility and Government) composed of key industry players tasked with
amalgamating and addressing the fragmented interests, opportunities, and challenges that exist in a home performance industry, which is evolving and growing.

The following HVAC Sector Working Roadmap documents the recommendations made by the HVAC
Sector Council to address the issues and opportunities prioritized by the Sector Council. The
recommendations are directed primarily at industry, by industry, but also include recommendations for Utilities and Government. The recommendations are directed at achieving the following goals in response to the issues identified in Table 1 below. The priority of each recommendation is indicated by the following key:

Recommendations are prioritized according to when their development must begin in order to meet the 2025 Vision. Some recommendations are dependent on the development of other recommendations and some will take several years to reach full implementation. High priority recommendations include those whose development needs to start in 2018, and those which can start right away as soon as resources are available.

This HVAC Sector Working Roadmap herein organizes recommendations by issue and presents the
current situation, goals and recommendations along with the suggested lead(s).
