Ed Janowiak, Eastern Heating and Cooling Council
Manual S, like the HVAC industry, has grown in the last decade. The newest version released in the last
quarter of 2014 is very much the same as the previous version, but also very different. If you have no idea
what ACCA’s Manual S is we'll fill you in, if you want the skinny on the updates, that’s included as well. 400
CFM is not always the required high efficiency CFM.

routine, required meetings into an exciting arena that contributes to career-tech improvement. Participants
