Corner Rick Sanguinito 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.

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!

American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, Volume 31, Issue 2 Page 6 and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. 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! American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, Volume 31, Issue 2 Page 7 and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. C T T C — T e c h n o l o g y, E n e r g y , a n d G o v e r n m e n t Ac t i v i t i e s Tim Envid 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. (From ASHRAE Government Affairs Update, 8/27/10) Al a s k a C h a p t e r M a y M e e t i n g Shirley Jean Bergman Twin Tiers Chapter members Chris Balbach and Shirley Jean Bergman attended the Alaska Chapter meeting in May 2010. The meeting was held at the Westmark Hotel in downtown Anchorage and featured a speaker from the non-profit organization Engineers Without Bor- ders. The incoming Alaska Chapter President, Ruth Armstrong, has ties to our area, having grown up in the Southern Tier. The ASHRAE Alaska Chapter was formed in 1974, with twenty Alaska members and the assistance of several Puget Sound Chapter members, who petitioned for dual membership. This enabled them to meet the 25 member re- quirement to charter a new ASHRAE chapter. The chapter has grown to 113 members, pri- marily in the Anchorage area.
