A Deep Dive into Guideline 36

The newest ASHRAE Guideline, 36-2018 High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems, provides uniform sequences of operation for HVAC systems that are intended to:

  • maximize the systems’ energy efficiency and performance
  • provide control stability
  • and allow for real-time fault detection and diagnostics

Standardized advanced control sequences provide benefits including:

  • reduced engineering time
  • reduced programming and commissioning time
  • reduced energy consumption
  • improved indoor air quality
  • and a common set of terms to facilitate communication between specifiers, contractors and operators

Join us for a deep dive discussion of the new Guideline, and how to apply it to your projects.
