Energy Audit -Duct Leakage
Frank Spevak, Energy Conservatory
Sonoma Room A
This session will cover the latest building code requirements for testing and sealing duct for
both new construction and retrofit. It will also cover how to perform a duct leakage test and
what the numbers really mean.
The Technician’s Involvement in HVAC Energy Management
William Artis, Daikin Manufacturing
Sonoma Room B
This session will look at the HVAC technician's role in the field from two perspectives, each with
a real world example: 1) How the typical lack of training of facilities maintenance and HVAC
personnel can be a detriment to a project’s success, in both ways of comfort and energy
efficiency. 2) How a technician's insight and experience gained from being in the field can lead
to project success.
Proper Training Procedures to Meet ASTM 828 Standards
Dale Powell, Copper Development Association
Sonoma Room C
This session will provide attendees with information related to the changes in the SDWA that
effected the allowable lead (Pb) levels of copper and copper alloys for drinking water
applications and how those changes are effecting other copper intensive piping disciplines (i.e.
HVACR). Attendees will be provided with CDA's vast knowledge of the no-lead alloys and the
proper soldering/brazing techniques necessary to install long-term satisfactory joints in lead-
free alloys. Attendees will be provided with CDA's Copper Tube Handbook and a wealth of other
pertinent information (in electronic format) related to soldering and brazing of copper and no-
lead copper alloys.
Measuring Airflow
Bill Spohn, Trutech Tools
Napa Room A
Industry studies have shown that 70% of residential systems have improper airflow. Airflow
measurements are among the most daunting tasks in the industry. Join Bill Spohn to learn the
wide variety of measurement methods and the pluses and minuses of each. He will dig into the
science behind good airflow measurement, as well as the importance of considering air density
corrections. Bill will also cover the ins and outs of picking the correct tool for the measurement
task or application. Every major airflow measurement tool and technique will be explored and
