UK Midlands was the first ASHRAE group formed in the UK. In 2017 we were inaugurated as a Chapter. Members based in midlands region are automatically enrolled. We welcome all members in the UK to join us.
At ASHRAE UK Midlands Chapter, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
There are many ways to get involved! You can join in the conversation by connecting with us on social media, meet your fellow member at the events, share your expertise by giving talks and technical tours, and contribute your time and skill by becoming a board member.
To serve humanity by advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and their allied fields.
All our works and activities are carried out by volunteers. In order to extend the impact and reach more people of this industry, we need all the support you can provide. Financial sponsorship for general activities of the Chapter or single events are much welcome.
A healthy and sustainable built environment for all.
We are living in challenging times and facing global crisis. The global pandemic and the climate change have shown the importance our profession and our great contribution to the society. HVAC, air quality, energy are all now frequently discussed in the news for controlling crisis and the public are more aware of the importance of our job. We are no longer unsung heroes. We can contribute to our community and find solutions, if we work together. UK ASHRAE Midlands chapter is one of the most effective platform that can provide a creative environment for new ideas and collaboration. ASHRAE is committed to providing a welcoming environment. Our culture is one of inclusiveness, acknowledging the inherent value and dignity of each individual. As a new chapter we are looking for members to get involved and join our Board of Governors (BOG). Ideally we would like everyone to get involved and contribute formally/informally in anyway they can. We can only tackle these global challenges effectively if we work together and motivate the future generations of building services engineers.
Webinar - How to meet the ventilation required in international standard in an energy efficient way
ASHRAE DL Program
Date: Wednesday 25th November 2020
Time: 6.00 pm till 7.00 pm
Location: On line webinar - Register for details
Today an acceptable indoor air quality is mainly defined by specifying the required level of ventilation in air changes per hour or the outside air supply rate. The increasing societal need for energy efficiency will often result in very tight buildings. This means that the amount of outside air supplied by infiltration is not enough to provide the required ventilation. In some standards, the required ventilation is based on adapted people (occupants) while other standards refer to un-adapted persons, who have just entered a room. Which approach is correct? Or should it depend on the type of space or occupancy? The present talk provides an overview and discusses the criteria used for specifying required ventilation rates and suggest ways of meeting the criteria in a more energy efficient way by means of improved ventilation effectiveness, use of air cleaning and by means of demand-controlled ventilation.Go to Event
