ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is offering a free Webcast titled Right From the Start-Commissioning for High Performing Buildings, scheduled for April 21, 1-4 p.m. EDT.

According to ASHRAE, this Webcast will provide tools to help you overcome the hurdles of commissioning, learn the “what, why, when and who” of the process, and how you can make it “business as usual.” The panel of experts will outline how commissioning supports a smoother construction process, maximizes the quality and persistence of energy and cost reductions, and provides a facility that operates as it was intended.

The program is intended to:

• Dispel common myths about commissioning;

• Show you how to make the commissioning process work for you;

• Clarify how to avoid or reverse performance decay; and

• Demonstrate through case studies how commissioning improves ROI.
