LAS VEGAS — It has long been recognized that design and installation faults have an impact on HVAC system capacity and efficiency. However, the magnitude and consequences of these fault impacts was unknown. This seminar provides insights from a recently concluded four-year investigation that quantifies the consequences of failing to observe the design and installation elements contained within the industry’s HVAC Quality Installation Specifications. It also highlights steps taken in Europe that are relevant to the North American market to reduce residential energy consumption, including deep retrofit strategies and incremental options with large market uptake for overall large impact. Attendance earns 1 PDH.

Presented by ASHRAE, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., in rooms N235 and N237
