Lehigh Valley Chapter of ASHRAE
ASHRAE is an international organization of 50,000 persons with chapters
throughout the world. The Society is organized for the sole purpose of
advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation,
air-conditioning and refrigeration for the public's benefit through
research, standards writing, continuing education and publications.
Through its membership, ASHRAE writes standards that set uniform
methods of testing and rating equipment and establish accepted
practices for the HVAC&R industry worldwide, such as the design of
energy efficient buildings.
The Society's research program, currently more than 100 research
projects worth nearly $8 million, investigates numerous issues, such as
identifying new refrigerants that are environmentally safe. ASHRAE
organizes broad-based technical programs for presentation at it's
semi-annual meetings and co-sponsors the international
Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Exposition, the largest
HVAC&R trade show in North America.
The Lehigh Valley Chapter covers an area of Pennsylvania from roughly
Reading to the west, Quakertown to the south, Phillipsburg, NJ, to the
east, and the Poconos to the North.
