Biography for Dan In-Hout:

Dan Int-Hout has been in the Air Distribution research and design business since 1973. He has a Master’s Degree in Business Management from Central Michigan Univ., and a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology & Physics from Denison University.  Dan currently serves on the ASHRAE Board of Directors.

Dan has written over 40 technical papers and articles on VAV system performance, acoustics, air diffusion, controls and occupant comfort. He was recently Chairman of both ASHRAE Technical and Standards Committees on Thermal Comfort, is a past Chairman of several other related ASHRAE Technical and Standards Committees, as well as ASHRAE Technical Activities Committee (TAC) & Environmental Health Committees.

Technical Session:

“The Basics of Air Distribution”
The basic physics of air distribution must be fully understood before one can properly select components for a project.  This lecture will cover:

  • Understanding Terminology

  • ADPI *Air Diffusion Performance Index

  • Proper Diffuser Selection

  • Common Product Group

    • Well Mixed (Inductive) Air Distribution

    • Non Inductive Air Distribution

“Basics of Applied Acoustics”
Dan will discuss everything you want to know about acoustics as it relates to air outlets and VAV terminals.  He will cover the issues with single number ratings and new rules about discharge sound ratings of VAV boxes.  He will describe AHRI 885, the acoustical application standard.

“Selecting VAV products for Acceptable Environments”

  • Proper engineering specifications and designs for this broad product range

  • Updates on the latest rules and knowledge regarding VAV box type, linings, accessories and airflow limitations

“You Can’t Afford Discomfort”
While much has been said about saving energy, little is said about the downside if the savings strategy reduces occupant productivity.  Strategies that add to the first, renovation, or operating cost of a space have to be weighed against the potential for reduced productivity when calculating the time to payback.
