Demographics & Housing Needs for North America
Everything you ever wanted to know about how North
America was populated, what influences purchasing
decisions, how the baby boom generation will drive
housing needs in the future and a whole lot more! First
presented at HRAI Learning Forum, Halifax, NS. Includes Environmental Ergonomics 101.
Environmental Ergonomics 101
Ever wonder why the
construction industry designs HVAC systems for buildings
rather than for people? Here's what it takes to make you
feel at home in your house. First presented at CIPHEX

Total Comfort Systems (266 kb)
We teach the fundamentals of this mechanical system in
our certification courses which are designed for the
skilled contractor or designer. If you know an
association or person that needs this instruction, email
firstname.lastname@example.org Part of our ongoing seminar
The Role of Industrial Design in HVAC
This is one of our favorite presentations because it
explains why you as a consumer can't readily have a
Total Comfort System for your house in North America.
The technology and equipment has been available for over 50
years and yet industry continues to slap in the same old
systems which fail to deliver all the metrics which
integrate indoor air quality with indoor comfort
quality. Part of our ongoing seminar series presented at
most conference programs.
Radiant Heating and Cooling Design
Long before we ever came along the Romans (hypocaust) and
the Koreans (Ondol) were using radiant systems to thermally
condition their bodies. Radiant heating is old old hat - so
old its a cliche ...well beyond the modern futuristic
Popular Science Experiment that many think it is...radiant
cooling is also tried and true. In fact one of the largest
radiant floor cooling projects in the world is the Bangkok
International Airport. First presented at ISH North America,
Snow Ice Melting Design
Health, safety and wellness are three good reasons to
consider a snow melting system for your project.
But its not just a matter of throwing in tube and
hooking it up to your boiler. First presented at ISH
North America, Boston, MA.
Prefabricated Hydronic Control and Boiler Systems
Nothing gets a discussion going faster than talking about
the Beast in the Boiler Room. This is a
collaboration and collage of boiler room photographs
going back 25 plus years. Want to see the past,
present and future of radiant based HVAC
systems...here's a window into the wonderful world of
water! Credit goes to all the guys hanging out at the
Wall! First presented at the Great Lakes Conference in
Inspecting Hydronic Heating Systems - The Good, Bad and
Ugly (2.2 mb)
Want to know what makes a good system or one that is
dangerous? This slide show examines work from the
hacks who leave behind misery for the owners and
occupants and work from those who are professionals in
every sense of the word. Mechanical and Architectural
Schematics are shown for typical systems. First
presented at the Canadian Association for Property and
Home Inspectors in Niagara Falls, On.
The HUMAN FACTOR in HVAC Series:
The Human Factor in HVAC explores the conflict between static trends in shelter and HVAC systems during dynamic human lifecycles. It observes demographic data, the critical mass of the baby boom generation, its priorities, and decision-making process during the latter years of life.
It concludes with a basic study in the human body’s thermal sensory systems within the parameters of indoor environmental quality defined in part by ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55 Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy.

Collaboration LEED™s to IEQ (6mb)
Many people assume that having a good HVAC system means having good Indoor Environmental Quality. However, heating a space does not make occupants comfortable, ventilating a space does not make it healthy, and A/C is not just cooling. Creating Quality Environments requires a multi
disciplinary integrated team approach of which HVAC is one facet. Yet within HVAC there is disconnection between the features and benefits. Bean’s Breakfast Workshop will help delegates and companions explore the HVAC industry’s understanding of Indoor Environmental Quality relative to
the World of Architecture and LEED™ for Housing.
