Correcting Low ∆T in Buildings with District Cooling
Chilled water provided from a utility plant is commonly used in a building’s HVAC system in lieu of installing chillers. This results in lower return water temperatures which decreases the efficiency of the entire chilled water system resulting in the condition known as “Low ∆T Syndrome.” In this webinar we will review the design of a district chilled water system and discuss a study of a building where “Low ∆T Syndrome” was corrected at the point of water to air heat transfer.

Women in HVACR, was organized exclusively for educational purposes to further the growth of women in all areas of the HVACR industry, including technical, sales, management and ownership. It is our goal to provide our members with a variety of opportunities to network and develop in a professional environment.
How we began: In 2002 during the AHR Expo held in Chicago, IL Ruth King & Gwen Hoskins began a discussion about the increased number of women joining the HVACR industry and the need for a way to share knowledge and experirence through networking while encouraging and supporting one another. This conversation between two women was the catalyst for the organization.
From this simple discussion a panel discussion was hosted by Comfortech entitled: Women in The Industry during the 2003 conference held in Dallas, TX. in conjunction with the Contracting Business Woman of the Year breakfast. The panel consisted of 4 women within the HVACR industry and was attended by approx 40 people.
From the interest generated during the panel discussion, by the end of the year Ruth King had applied for a 501C3 under the name Women in HVACR . As so it began. Read more.
