ASHRAE Columbus March Event

Topic: Adapting Today to Shape Tomorrow

As ASHRAE's president, Wentz chairs the Society's Board of Directors and Executive Committee. His theme, Adapt Today to Shape Tomorrow, is based on the goal in the Society's Strategic Plan to adapt. Wentz relates this goal to his personal history of moving from a slide rule in his early college days to a hand calculator and now a computer or smartphone as an example of the challenges and opportunities inherent in adapting to new technology.

"All of us have had to come face-to-face with the challenges of adaptation, it's in the power of adapting that lives, organizations, and communities, are transformed. Our ability to shape tomorrow is borne out of our willingness to adapt today. Together, we can create our future by adapting our resources, investments and technology to shape a more sustainable world."

    ASHRAE Columbus December Event

    Topic: Condensing Boilers - Equipment Selection, Optimizing Boiler Efficiency, Understanding Physical Limitations

    Condensing Boiler selection is not as simple as it sounds, with over thirty companies providing some type of condensing boiler it is important to understand the differences in design and performance. We will cover the different types of condensing boilers and examine the pros and cons of various designs. We will explain the truths about efficiency and how simply selecting a high-efficiency boiler may not equate to performance improvements. We will look at all around system performance and how to achieve higher total system efficiency through the use of modern control technology and equipment selection, resulting in lower upfront cost with no compromise on efficiency, resulting in faster payback on investment.
