We are so excited to announce that plans are complete for our 15th annual conference and registration is open! Please consider joining us as we “defy gravity” in the mile high city of Denver September 19th – 21st. We have a great line-up of speakers who will share with us ideas for breaking free from the beliefs and barriers that can hold us down and keep us from obtaining our highest levels of achievement:
We’ve got some fun planned, too! Our opening reception on Wednesday the 19th will be held at Ellyngton's in the conference hotel, The Brown Palace. This historic, evocative restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows and ornate decor is the perfect location for a meet and greet with all attendees.
Then on Thursday evening, we will go more casual with dinner at The Wynkoop Brewing Company. The Wynkoop is Colorado’s first brewpub, home to tastemakers and rulebreakers, bushwhackers and envelope pushers. For almost three decades they have been brewing handcrafted beer in their modest basement brewery underneath Denver’s largest pool hall. In the spirit of “Defying Gravity,” we will be dressing in our most “wicked” attire. So break out your broomsticks and ruby slippers and join us for an incredibly wicked evening! For those who want to stay an extra day or two, we have arranged for a choice of field trips on Friday. One is a guided hike on Mount Bierstadt, one of Colorado’s easiest fourteeners. With a summit elevaIon of over fourteen-thousand feet, this mountain climb is one that will be sure to take your breath away.
For those who would prefer to stay grounded, we offer a wine tour, tasting and lunch at Balistreri Vineyards. After a three course gourmet plated lunch, you will taste 15 to 17 Balistreri wines and tour the wine cellar where you will see them perfecting their craft.
More information on these field trips can be viewed on our conference registration page. We do hope that you will be able to make some time to get away from it all and join us in Denver. This conference is shaping up to be our best ever!! Please join us!
The Women in HVACR is launching a HVACR puzzle designed to interest young students in the HVACR industry by engaging them in a scavenger hunt for HVACR components in their own home. We are currently seeking sponsors for our first round of printing and have only two spots remaining. Help us launch our program to bring awareness of careers in HVACR to the next generation of technicians! For more information about sponsoring this project, please email email@example.com.
The need for qualified HVACR employees continues to grow at a pace that is far exceeding the students entering into HVACR programs at the high school and trade school levels. The WHVACR Education Committee is targeting grade-school youth to help build interest in HVACR for the future. In addition to the puzzle, designed to engage students in a fun and educational “hunt” for HVACR treasures in their own home, we are also seeking volunteers to help us bring our message to schools at all levels across the country. For more information on our WHVACR Ambassador Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Excited about your promotion from cubicle row to that room with the view? You may not be after spending a week there…especially if it’s that space that has the over-cooling problem. No wonder the last guy there quit! Or, did he freeze to death?
Zone One Two-position, Stand-alone Dampers
Zone One is a control damper assembly designed to solve over-heating and over-cooling problems in light commercial spaces. It can be used to control a single room, or by using multiple dampers to zone multiple rooms. Zone One is available as two-position or modulating and with a damper or diffuser.
Zone One doesn’t take over control of the equipment, it simply provides a comfort solution for a single area. The damper is wired to a thermostat* in the room or area where it’s too cold (or too hot). Using a duct temperature sensor mounted on the damper, the damper will open or close to help maintain setpoint based on the air temperature in the duct system. Because no zone control panel is required (control from the thermostat that works directly with the temperature sensor affixed to the round or square damper), installation is quick, easy and flexible. Controls come pre-wired and offer auto-changeover.
Zone One solves over-cooling problems in conference rooms, reception areas, offices…and other light commercial areas that typically run too cold or too hot. It also minimizes complaints and may increase productivity!
