President’s




              Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

              As you know this was our year to host the 2010 Region I CRC. It was held at the Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen
              August 18th through the 21st. Shirley Jean Bergman did an extraordinary job as our CRC Chairperson; we could
              not have had such a successful CRC without her guidance and planning. Everyone from the 15 Region 1
              chapters had nothing but rave reviews for our chapter’s CRC efforts. Again, this could not have happen without
              the leadership of Shirley Jean Bergman!!!!

              I want to thank all of the volunteers from our chapter that assisted in coordinating and managing the CRC. We
              had many family members and significant others who volunteered their time as well. I would like to thank the
              many people that helped with the Registration Table including chapter members Art Monaco, Mike Platt and
              Merle Platt. Also, Brendan Carr, with the help of John Bycina (BELIMO), hosted a great hospitality suite for the
              event.
              The following people from our chapter attended the CRC, so if you have
              any questions, please feel free to speak with them.

              Delegate                                  Jason Gilbert

              The CRC provides an opportunity for the chapters to have input into
              regional operations, receive training in the different responsibilities of          Treasurer
              governing the chapter, and networking with other chapters. Although                 Jim Chesko
                                                                                                  (607) 772-0007
              attending the CRC meant time away from work and family, it is an
              important responsibility that your chapter officers take on to ensure that
              the Twin Tiers Chapter is the best it can be.
                                                                                                  Secretary

              Our chapter also received several awards and honors. See the article                (607) 973-2509

A Word from our Former President
Jason Gilbert

Greetings Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who supported me over the last five months during my battle with
cancer. In case you haven't heard, I have completed my chemotherapy regimen, and I have had a PET scan that has
confirmed I am finally cancer-free.

I would like to congratulate Shirley Jean Bergman on a very successful CRC in Watkins Glen. Everyone has had positive
comments and had a great time. I would also like to thank her family and all of the chapter volunteers whose tireless
efforts allowed us to pull off this three-day event without any problems.

I would also like to congratulate those from our chapter who received awards at this year's CRC.
        Rick Sanguinito received an Honorable Mention for Chapter Technology Transfer.
        Matt Hawley received the Full Circle Award after collecting Research Promotion donations from the
        chapter officers.
        Mike Colwell received a Webcitation of Excellence for his never ending
        work on the chapter website.
        Shirley Jean Bergman received a Black Ink Award for her tireless efforts in
                                                                                            Congratulations!
        producing the chapter newsletter.
        I was fortunate to have an amazing set of chapter officers and committee chairs that allowed us to
        continue to receive the Presidential Award of Excellence, Premier Status, with Special Citation.

Thanks, Jason

CRC—Meeting Report
Shirley Jean Bergman

From Thursday, August 19 to Saturday, August 21, ASHRAE members from
Region I invaded the small town of Watkins Glen for our annual Chapters
Regional Conference (CRC) 2010. Over 125 members and their families from
Maine to New Jersey enjoyed a generous dose of Twin Tiers hospitality. The
facilities and staff of the Glen Harbor Hotel were phenomenal, and even the
weather cooperated. But it would not have been possible without the strong
participation from Twin Tiers Chapter members. I would like to say THANK
YOU! to everyone who helped make the event a resounding success.

Mike Colwell worked tirelessly to develop a high-quality, professional website
(http://www.ashraetwintierschapter.org/CRC2010/). The combined efforts of the members of the CRC organizing
committee, including Glenn Roberts, Matt Hawley, and Rick Lopez, and of others who attended one of our many
meetings over the last year were crucial to the success of the event. Thanks to chapter members Art Monaco, Tim
Envid, and the Platts who staffed the registration table. Thanks also to committee members Chris Kopec for hosting the
golf outing and wine tour, Brendan Carr for organizing the hospitality suite (with special thanks to Belimo for their
sponsorship), and Jim Chesko and Jay Green for sharing the duties of CRC Secretary. Rick Sanguinito did an
outstanding job as CRC 2010 Assistant Chair and Twin Tiers Alternate, standing in for me on Friday and Saturday. Last
but not least, the CRC marked the return of Jason Gilbert to active participation as Twin Tiers Delegate and CRC
Treasurer. We are so glad to have him back with a clean bill of health.

                       As you can see, it took the work of many hands to make CRC 2010 a success! Society President
                       Lynn Bellenger was in attendance, and she stated that this was her most memorable CRC as
                       President. Thank you again for your support, it was an honor to serve as CRC 2010 Chairperson.
                       I look forward to a great chapter year; see you at the September meeting!

CTTC—Chapter Programs
Chris Kopec

September’s chapter meeting will include a presentation on maximizing boiler energy efficiency by Keith Farrell from De
Dietrich Boilers. The presentation will give an analysis of the costs and benefits of low temperature condensing boilers
compared to conventional, high temperature boilers. The thermal efficiency as well as environmental and economic
benefits of condensing boilers will be examined. We will explore how boilers are tested and rated versus how they
operate in the real world. From capturing the latent heat in flue gases to heat exchanger metallurgy to boiler control
strategies, this presentation will help you or your customer get the most out of their condensing boilers.

Mr. Farrell has over 20 years of engineering experience in the boiler industry. After ten years of mechanical design and
installation as a design build mechanical contractor in Toronto, Mr. Farrell spent ten years at Riello Burners, the largest
burner manufacture in the world. There he was responsible for all application engineering, laboratory testing, and third
party approvals (UL and CSA). Currently, Mr. Farrell is the North American Sales Manager for De Dietrich boilers from
France, the third largest boiler manufacturer in the world, and provides consultation for EnerCan (a federal government
energy agency) on the new efficiency regulations for condensing boilers in Canada.



Membership Promotion
Keith Poeppel

The summer has nearly come to an end and thus marks the beginning of another great year for the ASHRAE Twin Tiers
Chapter. Since this is my first year of serving as the Membership Promotion (MP) Chair, I want to give a brief overview of
the roles of the MP Chair and how the position relates to our chapter’s operations.

The goal of the MP Chair is pretty simple: to get new members and to retain existing members. Our members are the
foundation of the ASHRAE organization and Twin Tiers Chapter and are vital to its continued success. To do this, the
Membership Promotion Committee works together to provide new opportunities and resources for people considering
joining the organization. The committee also works with the Programs Chair to receive feedback from existing members
to assure our chapter meetings provide engaging and educational material that keeps people coming back.

Now that we are all familiar with the role of the MP Chair, I’ll take a moment to remind everyone about some of the
benefits of being an ASHRAE member.
   Networking                                                        Access to a multitude of industry standards
   Educational chapter meetings                                      Access to experts in our field from a variety of
   Spring Symposium which is a day-long seminar with                 backgrounds
   various experts speaking about current topics in the              Tours of a variety of facilities with lessons learned
   HVAC field                                                        Annual golf tournament and clambake

A few reminders:
    A single membership renewal lasts one year.
    Associates and Members can also renew for three years at a time.
    The chapter will provide a free meal to anyone who brings a new member to a chapter meeting.
    The chapter will provide a free meal to a new member at their first chapter meeting.
    There will be two membership promotion nights during this year’s meetings. Look for more information in future
    newsletters.

See you at our next meeting!

DOE Stokes the Site vs. Source Energy Debate

Through a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is
proposing to change how it estimates the likely impacts of energy conservation standards for
certain commercial and industrial equipment. Specifically, DOE proposes to use full-fuel-cycle
(FFC) measures of energy and greenhouse gas emissions, rather than the primary energy
measures it currently uses.

How might this impact ASHRAE? Currently energy cost calculations for determining criteria in
ASHRAE Standard 90.1 are based on site energy. Standard 90.1 has been historically developed
on a site basis because site versus source energy is more visible to building owners through
utility meter readings.

By issuing this NOPR, DOE has stoked a long-smoldering debate between the powerful electric utility and gas interests,
each of which believes that measuring energy use (and the metric for energy determining energy savings) should be
done in a way that most benefits their respective industry (site for electric utilities and source for gas utilities – because
of the inefficiencies associated with the conversion of thermal energy to electrical energy).

ASHRAE is keeping a close eye on this debate. For more information on this NOPR visit http://bit.ly/9tZYhs.
