Ten years ago, HPAC Engineering published an editorial on the impact of the growing population on America's infrastructure and our ability to feed, clothe, and employ the increasing number of people. Back then, our friends in the U.S. Census Bureau were predicting that by the year 2100, the population of this country would be around 571 million—more than double the population at that time (270 million).
When I travel, I have an opportunity to meet many really smart people who have interesting viewpoints on the industry. Last month, I found myself in Fort Smith, Ark., visiting Baldor Electric Co. While on this visit, I learned something new (for me, anyway) about the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA).
Although 2010 should prove to be a "mixed bag" for the overall economy, it will be a great year for the geothermal industry, WaterFurnace President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Huntington told more than 400 HVAC contractors and distributors during the company's Annual Sales Meeting in Phoenix.
Heating in cold climates has put industry professionals to the test. Many heating systems don’t perform as the temperature drops, causing end users to rely on auxiliary heat, and often on fossil fuels. Advanced heating technology was developed to address these very issues, and heat pumps can now offer impressive performance in even the coldest climates – with no need for auxiliary heat....More
An engineering study was completed to compare a water-cooled centrifugal chiller with a waterside economizer, to a single water-cooled magnetic bearing centrifugal chiller operating in inverted duty - the YORK YMC2 chiller. In this webinar the results of the study will be presented, summarizing the differences between the two options in terms of chiller plant design, first costs, operating costs, and ownership (maintenance, footprint, and controls).
Attendees of this webinar will learn:...More
