    2017-2017 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

Happy New Year!

Let’s start 2017 with a new found energy and desire to better ourselves with a new attitude and commitment to our craft/industry. Hope to see everyone at our next monthly luncheon on January 18th back at the Petroleum Club. Our speaker is Jay Eldridge from Daikin. The topic is New Refrigerants.

This presentation will cover the future of refrigerants in North America and what is changing.  It will look at the basics of existing and new refrigerants including their chemistry, safety and efficiency.   It will cover many of the most common questions people are asking today including updates on codes and government regulation.  Much of the presentation will focus on chillers and implications for them.


And don’t forget the Annual ASHRAE Winter Conference is coming up in Las Vegas. Please advise if you are attending and we will pass along any information that you may need for your trip. Stay warm!!!



Patty Parrish, President
ASHRAE Fort Worth

ASHRAE Activities

We’ve gotten a good head start planning some early ASHRAE activities. This fall we plan to meet in conjunction with the NTAEE Chapter at TCU Amon Carter Stadium, in addition we will enjoy a Refrigeration Tour at a local brewery. Watch for upcoming golf tournaments benefitting Research Promotion.

Get Involved

This year, we are trying to schedule events that will allow the membership to get more out of being a member of the Fort Worth Chapter than a PDH for attendance at a lunch meeting. We will be hosting happy hours after the meetings every month and sponsorship opportunities will be available. We are also trying to expand the involvement outside of the core group of people who have volunteered their time over the past few years. Let us know if you are interesting in volunteering for a position in the Chapter.
