ASHRAE 2017 – Winter Conference and AHR Expo

ASHRAE’s 2017 Winter Conference is taking place in Las Vegas January 28th through February 1st.

Purafil’s Technical Director, Chris Muller, will be giving a presentation titled Using the IAQ Procedure from ASHRAE Standard 62.1 as an Alternate Compliance Path on LEED Projects: Reports from the Field at this year’s Technical Program portion of the ASHRAE Winter Conference.

Chris Muller will cover his case study on the largest independent co-educational college-preparatory school in the United States, which is located in the Atlanta (GA) metropolitan area. In this applicatio, several buildings use geothermal wells for heating and cooling, however, the existing well field did not have sufficient capacity for the new humanities building and the cost of new wells was prohibitive. As an atlernative, the design team opted to use LEED Pilot Credit 68: Indoor Air Quality Procedure to reduce the overall load on the well field, provide for capital cost savings, and ongoing energy savings. This presentation describes how the IAQ Procedure was successfully applied towards achieving LEED Gold certification.
