We're running it again, Integrated HVAC Engineering: Mastering Comfort, Health, and Efficiency.

See us at these 2016 events, ASHRAE AHR (Orlando), Better Buildings: Better Business (Wisconsin), Uponor (Las Vegas) ACI (Austin), Humid Climate Conference (Austin), ASHRAE (St Louis), ASHRAE IBSPA SIMbuild (Salt Lake City)

Better Buildings: Better Business 2016
Wisconsin Dells, WI.
Hosted by Seventhwave

Seminars made possible with funding from Uponor.

Day 1 workshop: Wednesday, March 2nd, 8:30am - 5:00pm
Day 2 seminar: Thursday March 3, 2016 10:30am - 11:45am and 1:30pm - 2:45pm 

Seminar #1: Planning and Budgeting for Hybrid Radiant Based HVAC Systems
Thursday March 3, 2016 10:30am - 11:45am

Abstract: Using four case studies, we will discuss truths and myths of costing radiant based cooling and heating systems. The program will take you through planning and budgeting for the very simple systems to the complex systems. We will also define what contractors and clients should expect from initial consultations, project planning and mechanical documentation.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Students will become aware of the costing for entry level single zone radiant systems.

  2. Students will become aware of the costing for whole home multi zone heating only systems with dedicated ventilation.

  3. Students will become aware of the costing for whole home integrated heating and cooling systems with dedicated space and kitchen exhaust ventilation systems.

  4. Students will gain an understanding in planning for simple to complex radiant based HVAC systems.

Seminar #2: Indoor Environmental Ergonomics: The Human Factors in IAQ & Thermal Comfort
Thursday March 3, 2016 1:30pm - 2:45pm 

Abstract: One would think an entire industry based on providing comfortable, healthy and safe environments should be able to easily describe how humans actually develop perceptions about indoor spaces. But as strange as it sounds course curriculum and building codes only address, “the hardware” and completely ignore, “the software”, that being the human factors. This program is all about the software and is the missing link connecting bodies to buildings.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Students will be able to describe the basic thermal sensory systems of the human body.

  2. Students will be able to describe how building systems enable environmental conditions necessary for thermal comfort quality.

  3. Students will be able to describe the basic relationships between the indoor air and the human body.

  4. Students will be able to describe how to enable the environmental conditions necessary for indoor air quality.

If you have questions please post them in the IEQ group. Before sending us private emails for assistance see our Services page>>

Post questions here in the IEQ group or go here for Services

Top 5 reasons why we may not have sent you the password:
1 You have not joined our IEQ group as per instruction step #2.
Why is this important? Linked-In does not allow us to send private emails to non-members.
2 You have not posted a password request at the IEQ group as per instruction step #3
3 You have not included the text string as per instruction step #3
4 You have sent us a private email requesting the password - see instruction step #3 and step #4
5 You have posted a request in another Linked-In discussion group - see instruction step #2

Background - we have well over 800 pages at the website many with course slides and spreadsheet tools. In order for us to manage who wants what and from where, our administrative team assigns a password to a URL and uses the IEQ Linked In group to manage the request. Additionally our email is backlogged to last year so sending us private emails requesting passwords for this years conference material is an exercise in futility...if you really want the resources - please follow the instructions.
