Mick Schwedler, PE, FASHRAE, LEED® AP BD+C
Mick has been active in the development and support of HVAC systems for Trane since 1982. As an applications engineer his areas of expertise include system optimization (in which he holds patents) as well as chilled water and water source heat pump system design. His primary activities include assisting designers in proper application of products and systems in buildings, and writing system application manuals and newsletters. In addition, he has presented technical information to tens of thousands of engineers through Trane’s Engineers Newsletter Live series, and ASHRAE webcasts. Mick has given technical seminars throughout North America, as well as in the Far East and South America, and published articles within the industry. Prior to his work with Trane, Mick received his MSME from the University of Wisconsin Solar Energy Laboratory and BSME from Northwestern University.
He is an ASHRAE Fellow, recipient of ASHRAE’s Exceptional Service, Distinguished Service, and Standards Achievement Awards, and was Chair of SSPC 90.1-2010. Mick also served as Chair of the Advanced Energy Design Guide Steering Committee and was on project committees for the 50% Hospital and Office Buildings AEDGs.
Mick chaired the USGBC LEED Technical Committee, served on the LEED Steering Committee and is a past member of several USGBC technical and education groups. He also authored portions of the original ASHRAE Green Building Guide, and served on technical groups for the New Buildings Institute.
Mick and Jen have three children -- Ben (married to Mandi, grandson Ian), Caroline (married to Aaron, grandson James) and Karl -- who are all blessings to them. Jen and Mick are quite active at First Evangelical Lutheran Church where Jen is an organist. Mick loves to sing in barbershop quartets, and golfs when work and volunteer activities allow. Raised 30 miles from Green Bay, WI in the 1960’s, Mick is an avid (or is that rabid?) Packer fan.
