​​Sept 26 - ASHRAE/AEE Chapter Meeting – 11:30–1 PM   Lunch and Learn:  Can light commercial rooftops meet the WV energy code?
Your invited to the Sept WV ASHRAE/AEE Lunch Meeting. The topic is "Do light commercial rooftops meet the WV energy code?" Light unitary rooftops are the a very popular, common HVAC system. Their main advantages are low cost and fast ship cycle. But are they energy efficient? What options are needed to meet today's WV ASHRAE 90.1-2007 energy code and what is need to meet the newer 90.1 energy codes used by Ky and Md. Local manufacturer representatives will help in a panel discussion of what energy saving equipment and system options are available. You can judge if the option(s) saves energy and meets the project cost and schedule. If you use rooftops, this meeting is for you.


Presenter/Discussion Leader: Art Hallstrom, P.E., ASHRAE Fellow, BEMP. WV ASHRAE Chapter Board of Governors.
