This is the Chapter's way of supporting ASHRAE Research The goal of ASHRAE Research is to conduct timely research to be the foremost authority on HVAC&R systems in buildings and other applications. ASHRAE Research provides grants for research into ventilation, building load calculations, equipment performance, etc.  Projects funded by ASHRAE Research develop the information that our standards and handbooks are based on.
 
Please consider sponsoring a hole.  This is your chance to advertise your products and services and show your support for a worthy cause. 
 
The golf outing will be at Scherwood in Schererville.

March 2015 - Standard 189.1

posted Mar 16, 2015, 12:35 PM by Northern Indiana ASHRAE ASHRAE   [ updated May 28, 2015, 7:16 AM ]

About the Program:
This ASHRAE standard was developed in coordination with USBGC and IESNA for the purpose of creating a code ready standard that addresses the overall building performance needs in establishing a minimum level of acceptance as to what is a “GREEN” building. ASHRAE Standard 189.1 incorporates ASHRAE Standards 62.1, 55, and 90.1 (all current versions) and the platform of LEED to develop code language explanations for all areas of a Green Building and what the building owner can expect for building performance. The presentation will address the following in reference to ASHRAE 189.1;
  1. Why have it?
  2. Relationship to Other ASHRAE Standards
  3. What is in the Standard.
The content of the details of the standard will be covered in a general context (due to time) as it will outline the areas of the standard, show Mandatory elements within each area of the standard, and then illustrate the two paths of compliance (prescriptive and performance) for each area of the standard.

October 2014 - HVAC Noise Control

posted Oct 2, 2014, 7:07 AM by Northern Indiana ASHRAE ASHRAE   [ updated Nov 14, 2014, 10:43 AM ]

HVAC Noise and Vibration Control
October 16, 2014

This presentation on will focus primarily on the best practices and strategies for dealing with acoustics on rooftop equipment.  The presentation will begin with brief definitions of some common acoustic terminology and move into a discussion of the process of acoustical engineering as it relates to determining how, when, and where acoustic treatments should be considered.  The bulk of presentation will focus on identifying multiple noise transmission paths specifically for curb mounted rooftop equipment with the use of case histories to illustrate problematic approaches and installations.   In addition to covering these transmission paths, a good deal of the presentation will focus on strategies for successfully specifying acoustics on new design projects.  The end of the presentation will quickly cover the treatment options for rooftop equipment as well as the recommended acoustic design considerations for ductwork.

October 2014 - Variable Speed Heat Pumps

posted Oct 2, 2014, 6:31 AM by Northern Indiana ASHRAE ASHRAE   [ updated Oct 13, 2014, 11:44 AM ]

Variable Speed Heat
Pumps in Cold Climates


Heat Pump technology can save substantial heating energy in a building, but has never been in favor in the Midwest.  Newer variable speed heat pump technology is starting to change all of that.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how a heat pump works for space heating and cooling
  2. Compare the differences between single/dual stage heat pumps and variable speed heat pumps
  3. Understand heat pump operation in cold Midwestern climates
  4. Learn how a heat pump can be used in conjunction with a gas furnace or boiler to "get the best of both worlds" in a dual-fuel system
  5. Discuss heat pump water heaters and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Systems

About the Presenter
Ryan R. Hoger, LEED AP, has been with Temperature Equipment Corp. since 1997. He was the 2007-08 president of the Illinois ASHRAE Chapter and is actively involved with several ASHRAE and gas/electric utility committees. He has extensive experience with building automation systems (BAS), energy recovery ventilators (ERV), variable refrigerant flow (VRF), demand controlled ventilation (DCV), and other energy conserving HVAC systems. Ryan has written several HVAC articles for various publications and has a Bachelor of Science degree in General Engineering from the University of Illinois.

Continuing Education
The LIVE version of this session qualifies for 1 PDH for Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin PEs.  In order to receive a PDH certificate, each attendee must be registered and logged in on a separate computer or tablet.  Additionally, the attendee needs to answer the live poll ques tons during the presentation and "participate" in the webinar.  GoToWebinar uses a metric called "Interest Rating" for each attendee to determine participation.  This statistic is computed from a proprietary algorithm that evaluates each attendee's interactions on a scale of 1 to 100 (100 being best). Factors that contribute to the Interest Rating include, but are not limited to, attendance length, attentiveness during the session (not multi-tasking on email, etc.), number of questions asked and an attendee's successful completion of polls, surveys and registration.
