The President's Message

March 2017

Brandon Bradley

Thank you to those that attended our February meeting. It was delightful to see so many come out after we had to postpone for a week because of the snowstorm. We had a tremendous program condensed into a single dinner meeting that ended up focusing on the fundamentals of fan technology and how duct configuration can impact performance. We also heard about heat exchanger technology and its energy impact in our market.

For the March meeting we are confident that snow will be out of the picture and that spring will be in the air. As for the actual program itself we will be continuing our focus on energy and turn the focus to control strategies. The technical program will be more of a Controls 101 focusing on the basics of Building Automation. The dinner session will expound further into specific controls strategies that are being used and how their use impacts society. Our speaker, Michael Facente, comes to us from Automated Logic and has years of experience within the industry.

Thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you at the March meeting.

ASHRAE Winter Conference & AHR Expo

ASHRAE Winter Conference & AHR Expo Recap!


Student Member's Recap 


My Name is Troy Solt I am a senior undergraduate student at the University of Hartford majoring in Mechanical Engineering concentrating in energy and sustainability and with a minor in math. I was awarded the 2017 Connecticut ASHRAE Annual Meeting Sponsorship which gave me the opportunity to attend ASHRAE’s winter conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. For the five days I was there I had the opportunity to attend a number of different technical sessions and workshops, it almost felt overwhelming how many there were.  Luckily, I was there with Blair Richardson who is a YEA (Young Engineers in ASHRAE) member who had been to the Vegas conference before and he was a great help in knowing what would be some interesting technical sessions to go to.  One event that I thought was particularly interesting was the Aercon expo.  Here I learned a lot about the different products that Aercon had, as well as general knowledge about HVAC that up until that point I had been unaware of. Another interesting event that I attended was the AHR Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center. There were more than 68,000 people that attended this from all over the world, and after the half a day spent there I didn’t even come close to seeing everything the expo had to offer.


I would like to thank the Connecticut ASHRAE Chapter for awarding me with this incredibly generous sponsorship. This trip greatly impacted my life and confirmed for me that after I graduate I want to join the HVAC industry.  I would also like to thank Blair Richardson who not only showed me around the city of Las Vegas but also helped make sure I understood what was being discussed at each of the technical sessions.  Finally, I would like to thank the Connecticut Students Activities Chair, Ashley Keller, who both made me aware of the scholarship and chose me to be the student that represented Connecticut at the conference.  I hope in the future that more students like myself will be awarded with this great opportunity.

Research Promotion


CT ASHRAE Research Promotion

The RP campaign is an annual fundraising campaign benefitting the funding of numerous ASHRAE programs:

  • ASHRAE Research
  • Scholarships for undergraduates
  • YEA Leadership Training


2016-2017 Goals

  1. Raise $13,480 for RP by June 30, 2017
  2. Raise $250 for scholarships by November 15, 2016

 Donate here...

 RP Focus - what your donation is doing:


1397-TRP, Experimental Investigation of Hospital Operating Room (OR) Air Distribution

Some 700,000 cases of surgical site infections occur each year, leading to time away from work, degraded life style, suffering, and in some cases, death. New research is expected to decrease patient exposure to particles that cause these infections by enhancing design guidelines for hospital operating rooms. The research is expected to verify earlier analysis that a protective thermal plume maintained above the surgical site will reduce the deposition of infectious particles. These results will have significant impact on practical operating room design guidelines, allowing designers to better place air distribution in the operating room to maximize the HVAC system's impact on preventing spread of infection and to perhaps reduce overall airflow rates in the operating room. Results also could be used to improve air distribution engineering elsewhere in health care, such as patient protection rooms and infection isolation rooms, and in similar applications, such as industrial clean rooms.

Curious about the research projects in your area?


So far this year the donations are doing well as we have already reached over 10% of goal (yes, that is actually is ahead of our normal pace), so I would like to take the opportunity to thank the CT members who have already come through with donations for the 2016-2017 campaign:

Las Vegas Proves Big Winner for ASHRAE, AHR Expo and Industry


ATLANTA – The 2017 ASHRAE Winter Conference and the AHR Expo saw record attendance with industry collaboration a strong focus of the events.

The 2017 ASHRAE Winter Conference took place Jan. 28-Feb. 1 at Caesars Palace with the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo held Jan. 30-Feb. 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  The two events exceeded their record-breaking attendance from the Conference and Expo that were held in Las Vegas in 2011.

In total, 3,579 people attended the Conference, making it the most well attended Winter Conference in recent years. The attendees represented 58 countries and included 537 first-timers.

The AHR Expo set several records, including attendance of more than 68,000 registered visitors and exhibitor personnel, as well as 500,159 square feet sold.  The Show was by far the largest and best attended Expo in the Western states, with some 1,968 exhibiting companies.

The Conference also saw several collaborative efforts and agreements with associations and organizations from around the world.

“Partnering with allied organizations and associations better allows us to harness and adapt new technologies, which we can all use in working toward a more sustainable environment,” ASHRAE President Tim Wentz said. “By working together, we can create a worldwide best practices databank of innovative and successful technologies that can serve the built environment community.”

ASHRAE signed memoranda of understanding with several groups, including the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) and Association of German Engineers (VDI-GBG). The Society also signed a strategic partnership agreement with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning Associations (REHVA). In addition, it updated its Work Plan with the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP).

As part of the event, the Clean Climate and Air Coalition (CCAC) held a Sustainable Technologies for Stationary Air Conditioning Workshop focused on climate-friendly and cost-effective air conditioning technologies.  ASHRAE is an actor with CCAC.

At the Conference, Wentz provided updates on several Society initiatives and programs of importance to the industry.

Among them was creation of a new ‘ASHRAE University’ educational platform, which will locate all of ASHRAE’s educational products in one place where users can select the products to meet their professional goals. Additionally, a personal dashboard is built into the new platform allowing users to track their progress toward their goals. The new platform can be found at www.ashrae.org/elearning.

ASHRAE also has launched a new Technology Portal at www.ashrae.org/technologyportal. This gives ASHRAE members an easy, fast method of connecting to the latest information generated by ASHRAE’s research program. It serves a central body of knowledge for ASHRAE technology and research products. It provides access to more than 1,700 Journal articles published since 1997 and more than 600 final reports from ASHRAE research projects.

Wentz, an associate professor at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, also shared an update on a new, online internship job board. The new internship portal is found on ASHRAE’s website at http://jobs.ashrae.org.

“I am big supporter of internship programs in that they are the easiest and most effective way to show students the importance of our work and why we are so passionate about what we do,” he said. “Check it out and start looking for the next generation of engineers for your firm.”

The Conference Bookstore featured several new standards of importance to the industry, including ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2016, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, ANSI/ASHRAE 15-2016, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems, and its sister standard, ANSI/ASHRAE 34-2016, Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants, as well as User’s Manuals for ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2016, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality and ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2016, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Residential Buildings.

The ASHRAE Learning Institute saw overall record attendance with top attended courses being Variable Refrigerant Flow System: Design & Applications, Designing High-Performance Healthcare HVAC Systems, Understanding & Designing Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems, Laboratory Design: The Basics and Beyond, and Designing Toward Net-Zero Energy Commercial Buildings.

The Technical Program featured some 350 presentations and 300 speakers.  Top attended sessions included Blue Is the New Green: The Water-Energy “Next Is,” Did It Really Work: Theory vs. Practice in Residential HVAC, Hydronic Water Flow Measurement, Recent Research in Data Center Cooling, When Good Valve Sizing Goes Bad, What Fire and Safety Engineers Have Learned Since the MGM Grand Fire in Las Vegas and What Are Present Day Fire and Life Safety Codes and Applications, Fresh Insights on Building Automation: A Seminar by the YEA Group, Modern Optimization Techniques for Hydronic Systems in Data Centers, Advancements in Ground Source Heat Pump Design, Energy Management: A Crucial Component of Operations and Maintenance, Commissioning a Central Chilled Water Plant and Data Driven Energy Auditing, Measurement and Verification.

The 2017 ASHRAE Annual Conference will take place June 24-28 in Long Beach, Calif., with the 2018 Winter Conference Jan. 20-24, and the AHR Expo, Jan. 22-24, in Chicago, Ill.

 Preliminary Energy Savings Announced for ASHRAE/IES 2016 Energy Standard

ATLANTA – More than 30 percent energy savings can be achieved using the 2016 version of Standard 90.1, according to recent analysis conducted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) in support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program.

An update on the preliminary results of the 90.1-2016 progress indicator report was made at the recent 2017 ASHRAE Winter Conference. ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2016, Energy Efficiency Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, was published in October 2016.

 PNNL conducted the energy savings analysis, using the 2004 standard as baseline. These results are considered preliminary and are expected to be deemed final in October 2017 when DOE publishes its final determination.

PNNL’s analysis shows for the whole building energy consumptions, national aggregated site energy savings a­re 34.1 percent and energy cost savings are 34.2 percent, when compared to the 2004 standard. 

“For more than 40 years, ASHRAE and IES members have strived to build upon the energy savings measures in each update of Standard 90.1, most recently released in its 10th edition,” Tim Wentz, ASHRAE president, said. “Each year the challenge grows as technology becomes more efficient.  That we continue to build upon the savings speaks to the ability of our industry to adapt and transform as those technologies change and more advanced technologies become more cost effective.”

 “The Illuminating Engineering Society has actively engaged with ASHRAE since 1975 providing technical support and co-developing standards,” Mark Lien, IES Industry Relations Manager and liaison to the Standard 90.1 committee, said. “Compliance with recommended light levels is verified using a database of luminaires.  These baseline products were reevaluated and updated to reflect the market shift toward higher efficiency lighting sources.  We are proud of the dedicated members of the Lighting Subcommittee and the Standard 90.1 committee and their significant contribution to the energy savings achieved by the 2016 version.”

­­On a nationally aggregated level, building-type energy savings range from 11.9 percent (fast food restaurants) to 48.6 percent (schools) and energy-cost savings from 15.3 percent (large offices) to 49.8 percent (schools). These figures include energy use and cost from the whole building energy consumptions including plug and process loads.

Sixteen different building prototypes were modeled in 17 different climate locations for a total of 272 building types in various climate zones that were incorporated into this analysis.

The energy reduction calculation was achieved through more than 120 addenda incorporated in the standard related to changes to requirements. The major changes in those addenda:

  • updated controls for emergency lighting

  • improved window U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient

  • improved coiling door air leakage requirements

  • updated parking lot occupancy controls

  • updated opaque door U-factor

  • established minimum chilled water systems coil selection Delta T
