NEBB donated $10,000 to ASHRAE Research at the 2013 NEBB Annual Conference in Montreal, Canada.
Stan Fleischer, 2013 NEBB President, handed the check to Tim Wentz, Vice President, ASHRAE, at the opening session of the 2013 NEBB Annual Conference on May 2, continuing the long tradition of NEBB’s support for ASHRAE research. NEBB’s donation will help fund research projects, “1245-RP 7.07 69,808 Determine the Effects of Duct Fittings on Air Velocity Measurements KANSAS STATE U. – Manhattan, KS” and “Measuring Air-tightness of Mid- and High-rise Non-residential Buildings.”
NEBB’s donation will help ASHRAE’s research to further high performance HVAC&R technologies which result in improved standards and guidelines.
ASHRAE Golden Circle is made up of investors who contributed $10,000 or more to ASHRAE research. Golden Circle investors contributed more than 10% of the total amount of funds collected for research. Universities and other private enterprises conduct these research programs, and the findings are used to update ASHRAE’s standards and guidelines. ASHRAE’s guidelines then serve as a benchmark and help educate and promote uniform testing, ratings and safe practices throughout the entire HVAC&R industry.
