While often overlooked, manufacturer representatives are essential elements within the built environment. These industry stalwarts keep the design community current with the latest equipment technology for HVAC applications, provide industry training, and much more. Typically, consulting engineers do not have a vested interest in research regarding specific equipment for continuous improvements and/or innovative design features and associated benefits, etc. for the HVAC building industry. Design engineers follow guidelines and standards from organizations, such as ASHRAE, to select the optimum HVAC equipment for the application. Often, during this process, engineers will rely on manufacturer representatives for guidance pertaining to specific equipment type and performance. Manufacturer representatives exist to keep the engineering community current with latest equipment technology; equipment cost; delivery time; construction assistance for the HVAC projects; and more through shop drawing submittals, equipment startup, operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals, training sessions; equipment warranties, and more.
