Durkin’s approach is that most applications do not need for designers to control humidity, rather just make sure it doesn’t get out of control. Humidity control can be active or passive, but it should never be ignored. This talk will explain low cost but highly effective solutions that work in all climate zones

Recognized as an innovative and creative engineer throughout the Midwest, Tom directs all mechanical and plumbing engineering for SDA. Tom’s designs for buildings and systems are proven to be safe, energy-efficient and cost-effective. A nationally sought-after speaker and frequent ASHRAE author who promotes energy-smart HVAC systems, Tom is also a contributor to the U.S. Department of Energy. He designed the first “Energy Star” school HVAC system in the Midwest. In 1998, Tom presented one of his innovative systems to members of the United States Congress. Tom has either invented or pioneered the implementation of nine distinct HVAC innovations, all of which save energy and reduce pollution.

Tom’s design work has won twelve (12) state, national and international awards, including two ASHRAE Technology Awards.
