ASHRAE Celebrates its 125th Anniversary
   
 
ASHRAE Celebrates its 125th Anniversary

Know Your History!!

ASHRAE was founded in 1894 as the American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers (ASHVE). Ten years later the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE) was organized in December 1904. Although there were many members who had membership to both societies and discussions about a merger; it was not until 1959 that there was a final agreement and the two organizations merged to form ASHRAE.

ASHVE was first talked of, at least with the idea of at once forming such society in the summer of 1894. It was thought that the time was ripe for a pure engineering society. Composed of the active workers in the field of heating and ventilating, meeting subjects most interesting to the engineer would be discussed. As the result of this interchange of ideas, it was decided to ask the opinions of fifty or seventy-five engineers known to be much interested in their chosen line of work, as to the advisability of forming such an organization.

So many favorable replies were received that invitations were sent out to about twenty-five persons in New York city to come together at the office of Heating and Ventilation, 146 World Building, New York, Thursday, August 2, 1894. The first regular meeting was called to order at the Broadway Central Hotel, New York, at 3 P. M., September 10, 1894. The first annual meeting of The American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers was held at No. 12 West 31 St street, New York city, January 22, 23, and 24, 1895.

Forthcoming will be the actual proceedings from this meeting!  Stay tuned!

Louisville ASHRAE November Chapter Meeting (Virtual)
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
 
Please join us for the fourth chapter meeting of the 2020-2021 ASHRAE year!

This chapter meeting will be held virtually

Presenter: Larry J. Fisher, Life Member ASHRAE

Larry is the retired owner and President of ECT Services, a Temperature Controls design and installation company based in Louisville, KY.  He has been involved with ASHRAE Technical Committee 1.4, Control Theory and Application for over 25 years.  Larry is past member of ASHRAE Board of Directors, served as your Region VII DRC, and currently serves as voting member on Foundation, Publishing and Education, Government Affairs, and Nominating.  He has received ASHRAE’s Distinguished and Exceptional Service Awards. He has been a speaker with controls as the focus at numerous ASHRAE Conferences. His expertise during his 35+ years in controls includes the understanding of quality installation that result in a more sustainable building for the future. His passion is education for owners, engineers, and installers that result in a well-maintained mechanical system for the life of a building.


Topic: Best Practices for Installing DDC Systems

This will be an abbreviated version from the 3 hour instructor led course that Larry debuted at the 2019 Winter Meeting in Orlando.

What is interesting is this course DOES NOT discuss sequences of operation, programming, or software. The purpose is to focus on the physical design, the engineering specs (instructions) of the physical design, the installation procedures and accountability and expectations of the team required to design and install sustainable controls for the life of a building.

A facility’s direct digital controls (DDCs) form a living, breathing system that an owner will use throughout the life of the building. However, many control systems do not work as designed on “Day One,” much less after two to three years of use. Adding to the complexity are subcontractors, who often do not routinely install control systems, as well as installing contractors, who have broad discretion to determine aspects of how controls are installed. In addition, many manufacturers sell DDCs and components but provide little information on installation practices or quality-control guidelines.

If standardized and quality installations are promoted, the short and long-term success of control systems will be greatly improved.

This program will discuss information to ensure uniformity for consultants, contractors, and code officials. The program will specifically benefit consulting engineers, DDC design integration engineers, commissioning authorities, and contractors who install DDC Systems.


Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Cost: $15

(1) PDH will be available

Building EQ: Powered by ASHRAE


ASHRAE's Building EQ Portal provides a quick energy analysis that benchmarks a building's energy performance. Building EQ assists in the preparation of an ASHRAE Level 1 Energy Audit to identify means to improve a building's energy performance including low-cost, no-cost energy efficiency measures and an Indoor Environmental Quality survey with recorded measurements to provide additional information to assess a building's performance.

Two different evaluations can be used independently to compare a candidate building to other similar buildings in the same climate zone or together for an assessment of a building's design potential compared to actual operation:

In Operation compares actual building energy use based on metered energy information.

As Designed compares potential energy use based on the building's physical characteristics and systems with standardized energy use simulation.
