HVAC 360 Podcasts

Welcome to building[x]!

Imagine if you will an online learning center that provides the information that you want, no need, about the built environment.  Wouldn't that be great?! That's what I want this site to become.  Now that may be a bold statement but what's life without a few goals.  So what I plan on doing over the next few months is developing a discipline or two at a time.  The pages of these disciplines will contain information from myself as well as other resources from the internet that I have found worth your while. Enjoy.

HVAC 360 - Episode 068 - Thermostat Operation and Thermal Comfort

Welcome to this week's episdoe of HVAC 360 where we talk about Thermostat Operation and Thermal Comfort, along the lines of ASHRAE Standard 55.  While I have to admit most of you understand proper thermostat operation, you may come up short when describing it to a laymen.  This is where my visual analogy of the operation comes into play.  Hopefully this is something that you can use, but if not I talk a little about Thermal Comfort.  Although I didn't have my ASHRAE Standard 55 handy, I did have my Fundamentals.  Please consider sharing this episode or others that you have found enlightening with your friends and co-workers.

HVAC 360 - Episode 025 - Indoor Environmental Quality

For this week's episode I talk with Robert Bean, an Indoor Environmental Quality and Energy Consultant about Indoor Environmental Quality. We talk about the difference between IAQ and IEQ, along with some of the codes that surround this topic.

If you would like to learn more about the code side of things you can get that info at the ashrae.org website or following these links:

On a housekeeping topic, I would like to thank my friend Kris for pointing out the audio distortion in my previous podcasts.  Although my original recordings were clean it seems that the final conversion to the mp3 file format got distorted.  I have now found a work-around for this and I hope you enjoy the change.  Thanks for the feedback Kris!
