ASHRAE Columbus January Event

Topic: Responsible Use of Refrigerants

This presentation discusses the practical application of Standards 15, 147 and 34 including how to retrofit existing Mechanical Rooms to meet the Standard.  Emphasis is placed on the safety of the persons and property on or near the premises.  The presentation also discusses the practices and procedures that will reduce emissions into the atmosphere of halogenated refrigerants used in refrigeration and air-conditioning.  Ever wonder why you hear so many different dates on the phase out of refrigerants?  Want to know which refrigerant is being phased out when and what will replace it?  This lecture will describe the current status of refrigerants and provide our best guess on where things are going in the future.

    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.

    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
