7 Key Impacts of ASHRAE Standards on Waterside Construction and 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 90.1, 188-2015 and others that have a direct impact on Water side HVAC installation and design. The goal of this talk is to approach from that real world view point a few of the key issues explaining why they are needed from an energy and health standpoint
