Please join us for the fifth Maine Chapter ASHRAE meeting of 2012-2013.

DATE:              Tuesday, January 8, 2013    


WHAT:            How HVAC Systems Either Help – or Hurt – the Building 

                Integrated design for buildings offers the potential for major, world-class reductions in energy, as well as improvements in comfort and cost reduction. But the process is not always smooth. This lecture describes some real-world interactions between buildings and HVAC systems in daily operation. With information based on thermal imaging and pressure measurements using micro-manometers, mechanical engineers can design better systems, as well as help architects improve comfort, reduce energy consumption and keep the building itself more durable.



SPEAKER:        Lew Harriman is Director of Research at Mason-Grant Consulting in Portsmouth, NH. He has spent 35 years researching and solving problems related to humidity and moisture in buildings and industrial processes. He is an ASHRAE Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer. Lew was the lead author and project manager for the ASHRAE Humidity Control Design Guide, and also for the ASHRAE Guide for Buildings in Hot & Humid Climates. He currently serves as Chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 1.12 (Moisture Management in Buildings), and also as Chair of the Document Revision Committee for the ASHRAE Position Document titled: Limiting Indoor Mold and Dampness in Buildings.
