American chiller manufacturer Azane's holding company, the industrial refrigeration and heating group Star Refrigeration, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Andy Pearson as Group Managing Director. Dr Pearson has been working for Star since 1986 and has recently been promoted from his position as Group Engineering Director, a role he has held since 2010.
Dr Andy Pearson of Star Refrigeration and Azane Inc has been named an ASHRAE Fellow during the Society's Winter Conference in Orlando last Saturday. The prestigious title recognises people who have made substantial contributions to the HVACR industry and achieved distinction in the field of engineering.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, as Jane Austen might have said, that capital expenditure on existing equipment can only be considered if the savings achieved will return the investment within three years, and preferably in less than two.
As members of ASHRAE we are privileged to have access to the most comprehensive and useful set of standards for design and construction of buildings. However, the standards themselves are dynamic entities, changing and developing as time goes by.
