Presented by: Matt Pemberton 

Dear (Contact First Name), 

Join us for a partnership event from USGBC NY Upstate and ASHRAE : 

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 
12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. 
Italian American Community Center 
257 Washington Avenue Extension 
Albany, NY 12205 

Chilled beam cooling products are designed for use in non-residential applications where there is a high cooling load and/or rooms that require individual temperature control. Chilled beams combine sensible cooling with dehumidified ventilation air to reduce energy usage, improve comfort levels, and reduce the architectural impact of ductwork and other mechanical systems. 

While chilled beams are an extremely efficient method of handling the space sensible load, care must be taken in the proper calculation of the latent load. Proper calculation of the latent load, combined with the inherent decoupling of sensible load vs. latent load in a chilled beam system, will produce one of the most energy efficient building HVAC systems available. 

Pending approval for 1 PDH (Professional Engineering Professional Development Hour) 

Learning Objectives: 
Explain what chilled beams are and how they work 
Provide an overview of the controls and components of a chilled beam system 
Discuss the components that make up a building latent load 
Review latent load calculations and associated DOAS equipment used in effective chilled beam systems 

About the Presenter: 

Matt Pemberton, North East Regional Mangager, SEMCO 

With a Bachelors degree from Columbia College, Matt has worked for SEMCO since 2005 in two separate capacities. From 2005-2007, Matt worked as an inside support technician and in 2008 moved to the role of regional manager for the North East territory. For 7 ½ years, Matt has worked with systems designs involving energy recovery and dedicated outdoor air systems. Along with DOAS system, chilled beams and applied/unitary single/dual wheel unit designs, Matt has spent time with wheel applications in non-lab and laboratory environments. With the inclusion of the chilled beam product into SEMCO's product offering, after the acquisition of SEMCO by Fläkt Woods, Matt has been working on systems designs for chilled beams including DOAS designs. Matt is a member of the St. Louis Chapter of ASHRAE and a LEED Green Associate with the GBCI.
