Event Summary

Mistakes lead to "experience" - that is, knowing what you never want to have happen to you again. It's a lot less painful to learn from other people's "experience".

This seminar, originally presented at an ASHRAE annual conference, covers common chilled water system mistakes; and more importantly how to avoid or mitigate them. Chilled water systems covered include new, retrofit, conversion/addition, and replacement. In addition, control options are also discussed.

Whether novice or experienced, come shake your head, laugh a bit , and learn together.

We are also offering a fundamentals session that is a good precursor to the main presentation. The fundamentals session will focus on chilled water system decisions.
