Emphasis is placed on the safety of the persons and property on or near the premises. Also it discusses the practices and procedures that will reduce emissions into the atmosphere of halogenated refrigerants used in refrigeration and air conditioning. Ever wonder why you hear so many different dates on the phase out of refrigerants? Want to know which refrigerant is being phased out, when and what will replace it? This lecture will describe the current status of refrigerants and provide our best guess on where things are going in the future.

March 25 - 2 PM - EXPO Seminar 45 - What is better? Max Tech or Net Zero buildings?
Room 202  Sponsored by WV ASHRAE.
Presented by Art Hallstrom, AD Hall & Associates.
Today, the choice is yours. Technology exists today to make a building either max tech (lowest energy usage before renewable energy like solar) or net zero - no off site energy use on an annual basis. Learn about EUI metrics, WV energy code requirements, how they relate to max tech and net zero, benefits of a high performance/low energy use building and as an owner or designer - how to get one. The ASHRAE bEQ Labeling Hurricane City Building will be an example for how to get to max tech or net zero energy use.
