ASHRAE Seeks Presentations for 2020 Webcast

ATLANTA (March 14, 2019) – ASHRAE has announced a call for three presenters to share knowledge about the effects of humidity to a global audience in its 2020 ASHRAE Webcast, “Effects of Low Humidity and High Humidity on People, Buildings and Energy Performance.”

“Humidity has a substantial impact on the comfort and health of building occupants,” said Steve Piccolo, chair of Webcast Ad Hoc committee. “Preserving the structural integrity of buildings and protecting the contents also requires proper humidity control. This Webcast will explore the effects of humidity on buildings, occupants, and contents in a variety of uses. The program will also discuss the impact humidity has on energy consumption of the HVAC system and effective ways to control humidity.
