Research

The funds collected through ASHRAE Research Promotion provide all of us the technical information in the ASHRAE Handbooks we need to do our jobs.  The funds are also used to support the ASHRAE Learning Institute program which provides excellent training for anyone in the industry who wants to sign up for the ‘online’ education courses.  If you wish to see what one of the ASHRAE Handbooks would contain ‘without’ the support received from ASHRAE Research, click here.

June 30, 2016 is our final deadline to have all contributions sent to ASHRAE Headquarters.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE ALREADY CONTRIBUTED TO OUR CHAPTER’S SUCCESS!!

If you wish to support your Chapter with a contribution to ASHRAE Research, you may do so in one of three ways:

  1. Go online to https://xp20.ashrae.org/secure/researchpromotion/rp.html and make your contribution with a credit card or PayPal.

  2. Bring your check or credit card to an ASHRAE meeting and one of the RP Committee will be available to accept your contribution.

Many Chapter members have asked “How much?” is a reasonable contribution to ASHRAE Research.  My answer is “It depends.”  If you divide our Chapter goal by the entire membership, it is an “average” of $52/member but not everyone is able to contribute.  So the following information may help you decide based on “historic” contribution levels in our Chapter:

  • Large Engineering firm, Contractor or Supplier = $500-$1000

  • Smaller Engineering firm, Contractor or Supplier = $200-$400

  • Individuals – Principals/Owner/Partners = $100

  • Individuals – Project Managers/Outside Salesperson = $50

  • Individuals – Engineers/Inside Salesperson = $25

  • Endowment – It Keeps giving every year – Minimum = $2,500
