Navigant: Global energy efficient HVAC systems revenue will total $33 billion by 2020
Contracting Business
Energy consumption by HVAC systems accounts for roughly 40 percent of total building energy consumption, and in turn, buildings account for 35 to 40 percent of total worldwide energy consumption. Thus, HVAC energy consumption in commercial buildings is a key contributor to total global energy consumption. Driven by tightening energy efficiency regulations and by demand for higher-efficiency buildings, the technology for efficient HVAC systems is advancing. According to a new report from Navigant Research, annual revenue from energy efficient HVAC systems will grow from $17.2 billion in 2013 to $33.2 billion by 2020.

ASHRAE 62.1: A review of key requirements and concepts
Consulting-Specifying Engineer
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is probably the most commonly discussed aspect of building indoor environmental quality (IEQ). IAQ has direct effects on our health as well as the perception of an acceptable indoor environment. In the United States, ASHRAE Standard 62.1: Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality is the most commonly referenced standard to quantify acceptable conditions and appropriate HVAC system design. ASHRAE Standard 62.1 either forms the basis for most mechanical codes or is directly referenced by the codes themselves.

The true spirit of Oil Heat Cares
This past weekend, the New York City Chapter, spearheaded by Angel Gonzalez, took on a project that benefits Christ Presbyterian by the Sea. This community, which overlooks the water, was a victim of Sandy. There are some great photos from the weekend .

Because this was such a major job, OHC wasn't able to pay for everything. So these guys didn’t just install the new equipment; they sourced everything for deep discounts and even for free!

The NYC Chapter was supported by members of other chapters, including the Long Island Oil Heating and Cooling Chapter and Fairfield County.

There will be a complete wrap-up of this project shortly and everyone will be properly recognized. But for now, thank you to everyone involved.

A taxing debate over heating oil tax
The Morning Call
Steve Sweigart hates all of the taxes he has to pay. So he sure wasn't going to pay sales tax on something that's not taxable, like heating oil for his home. "I pay enough taxes," said Sweigart, of South Whitehall Township, Pa., who recently was locked in a dispute with a Berks County fuel oil company about whether an oil delivery this year was taxable. The state tax code says it isn't, if it's bought for personal residential use.
