With DOE changes in energy efficiency regulations scheduled for implementation on January 1, 2018, the next E360 webinar from Emerson Climate will outline key industry trends and discuss options available to address these changes.

This latest installment of the E360 Webinar series, “Are You Ready for the Upcoming Efficiency Regulations and Refrigerant Changes in HVAC?” will be held on Tuesday, August 2, at 2 p.m. EDT. Along with DOE changes, the global movement to phase down hydcrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants will soon impact the AC industry, specifically, proposed actions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

In addition to covering options to address upcoming DOE and EPA changes, the webinar will present incentive opportunities for complying with the Consortium for Energy Efficiency’s unitary specification for AC and heat pumps that went into effect earlier this year — specifically, the energy efficiency ratios and integrated energy efficiency ratios for part-load efficiencies per size category, system type, and tier level.

Featured topics will include:

• DOE adoption of the IEER portion of ASHRAE 90.1-2013 energy efficiency standard for commercial AC packaged and split systems, effective nationally on January 1, 2018

• Technology options available to optimize integrated energy efficiency ratios for part-load system efficiency

• Changing refrigerant landscape for AC and heat pump applications, including the EPA’s delisting of common chiller refrigerants such as HFC-I34a, R-410A, and R-407A as well as the introduction of low-global warming refrigerant alternatives and the implications to system designs

The webinar will be presented by David Hules, director of commercial marketing, air conditioning business, Emerson Climate Technologies. In this role, Hules is responsible for understanding industry trends across commercial air conditioning market segments and translating these into marketing activities and new products for Emerson.
