    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.

    ASHRAE Columbus November Event

    Topic: Creating a World of Zero Energy Buildings

    With the advancement of energy efficiency and the rapid decrease in cost of solar electric systems, the concept of creating a building that produces as much energy as it consumes is becoming a reality.  This presentation will look at how to achieve a zero energy building, the process for achieving success, and some of the technologies that are used to achieve this goal.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand what is required to create a Zero Energy Building

    2. Understand metrics used and how to compute whether a building is or is not a zero energy building

    3. Describe a process for achieving a zero energy building with limited capital

    4. Explain how to set and achieve aggressive energy targets

    ASHRAE Columbus October Event

    Topic: Calibrate Your Tissue Box: A Practical Guide to ASHRAE Standard 170 Compliance

    Over the last few years, air pressure relationships within healthcare facilities have been receiving increased attention. When it comes to regulatory surveys, air pressure has become a top-cited violation.
    But it's not just for passing tissue tests that healthcare facility staff and design professionals need to be familiar with ASHRAE Standard 170. When renovating patient rooms, repurposing existing spaces, or building new hospitals, they need to be prepared for the impact of today's codes and standards on their project's design and budget.
    In this presentation, Katie will give participants a practical understanding of how ASHRAE 170 impacts healthcare facility operation and design. Diagrams and illustrations will show how ASHRAE 170 requirements actually take shape in a healthcare facility. Topics will include air pressure relationships, building systems, equipment location, and room functions, with special attention given to spaces where pressure requirements are particularly critical.
