Key Impacts of ASHRAE Standards on Waterside Design

Many ASHRAE Standards have become building code in North America. Engineers, Contractors and Owners are expected to apply these Standards to their buildings. In many cases, we find in the real world of HVAC Hydronic systems a lack of awareness and understanding of basic important sections. This seminar will take a common-sense approach to specific sections of ASHRAE 90.1-2010/2013 and discuss how they have a direct impact on Water side HVAC installation and design. Below is an outline of what will be covered:

* History of ASHRAE 90.1
* 90.1-2010 and 2013 Current Requirements
* Waterside Economizers and 90.1 90.1-2016 Future Requirements
