How many times have you been on the job, and the customer is not happy: the Mechanical Contractor and Controls Contractor are red-faced, pointing fingers at each other and it has the look and feel of an MMA Fight gone wrong?
It happens more than you think. So how can this scenorio be avoided?
Young Gun Aaron Gorka goes back to school (literally back to school) to find solutions to the age old awkward dance of mechnical vs. controls.
Aaron goes to one of Canada’s top technical colleges, Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. He sits down with Jim Bechard and John Loncar two of the brightest professors in the HVAC and Smart Buildings controls field.
On this episode of Next Generation Innovation, you will hear an insightful conversation about how the different systems in a building are supposed to work. You will also get practical tips on everything from managing expectations to evaluating performance.
Thanks to Aaron, Jim, and John for passing on such excellent knowledge.

Sometimes Simple is better.....
The best new product from Siemens...
that is a very difficult question to answer given all the new products and solutions Siemens is bringing into the HVAC and Smart Building Controls Space.
The Siemens new line of Variable Frequency Drives, their integration of Comfy and J2 Innovations into their suite of building automation controls, and Desigo are just a few that come to mind..You can click here and find out more from our interview with Siemens senior sales manager, Josh Felperin.
As cool and innovative as all those products are, I want to feature a product that might not be recognized for just how special it is ….
The Siemens POL 220 is a carefully thought out, elegant new version of the economizer control. Siemens has reimagined, and redesigned the classic economizer controller.
Some of the things I really like about the Siemens POL:
- You don’t need any software to configure it. I am still old school at heart , so dip switches and potentiometers work for me. They make me feel young again! And the fact that Siemens made sure not to skimp on the pots and dip swiches, makes them feel good in the hand and easy to see.
- I can select three free cooling strategies: temperature, humidity , and even Demand Control ventilation based on CO2 sensors.
- The plug and Play Feature will automatically determine which configuration you need once you have your sensors wired and power up the controller for the first time.
