Registration for ASHRAE’s upcoming webcast, “Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems – A Path to Balancing Energy and IEQ,” opened March 19. The webcast focuses on the departure from conventional HVAC systems and takes place April 19, 2012, from 1 to 4 p.m. EDT.

“Based on growing popularity the chosen topic for the 2012 webcast is Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS),” Andy Cochrane, chair of the ASHRAE committee overseeing the Webcast, said. “This webcast will describe the role of DOAS in the overall HVAC system, and discuss various DOAS equipment configurations and applications. From understanding DOAS system characteristics, to avoiding pitfalls and challenges unique to DOAS applications, the webcast is a must see for discerning owners and designers alike.”

The webcast presenters are Tim McGinn, P.E., principal, DIALOG; Stanley Mumma, Ph.D., P.E., Professor Emeritus of Architectural Engineering, Pennsylvania State University; and John Murphy, applications engineer, Trane.

Three Professional Development Hours (PDHs) or three AIA Learning Units (LUs) are available.

The live program will be archived online until May 3, 2012, for viewers who are unable to participate on April 19. Registration is required to view the archived program. A DVD of the webcast will also be available for purchase.
