SELACACI: Building Science for the HVAC Contractor – Take 2
Contributed by Bobby Parks
On October 23 (the Fourth Tuesday), SELACACI will continue its series on building science issues for a/c field professionals. Last year, Bobby Parks travelled Louisiana to educate builders and others on behalf of the La. Dept. of Natural Resources (LDNR), and he’s returning to the New Orleans area this year to educate Code Officials & Fire Marshalls. Here’s your chance to hear him & ask questions!
Bobby stresses that the buildings that we are trying to air-condition have changed just as much as the HVAC systems that are installed today. “Because HVAC systems can account for as much as 70% of the energy cost and 99% of the comfort, A/C contractors really need to get it right!” In this program, we will discuss and observe some pitfalls of not understanding the buildings that we are working with, by reviewing a few ‘real world’ case studies of field failures and what it took to correct them… Join us!
