With data centers being the largest and fastest growing consumers of electricity in the USA, even the World, we need to employ effective methods to reduce energy usage. Intelligent HVAC equipment can be a fundamental component in contributing to these vitally needed energy savings.
Data centers can be setup to take advantage of ‘free’ cooling by using a combination of intake/exhaust dampers in combination with airside economizers, their purpose to shut down compressors and bring in cool outside air where it is required. This ultimately results in substantial facility energy savings!

Thanksgiving really is a special holiday, it’s the best US holiday; food, family and football.
It’s a good time to reflect together and remember what we are most thankful for personally and professionally throughout this year.
I’m grateful to our loyal Ruskin customers and staff. I’m also thankful for the opportunity to serve others.

How amazing are these technicians installing huge Ruskin Louvers at around 40 feet up and beyond? They will bring the highest level of functionality and aesthetic appeal to a Class A building in Dallas.
It just goes to show that with correct training, adhering to regulations, great products and a bit of nerve, you can accomplish the best results! After all everything is bigger in Texas and Louvers are no exception!
It is an honor and a privilege to be elected as a member of the board of directors at AMCA. This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, a three year commitment is exactly that, a commitment.
Thank you to previous board members who have laid the foundations over the last one hundred years providing such a valuable service to the industry.
As a board, together we will consider and make difficult decisions, decisions we believe will be in the best long-term interests of the entire industry.
Together as AMCA we are a team, each using our own unique strengths and experience.
Looking forward to the next one hundred years and beyond AMCA, as an organization, will continue to be an expert in accuracy, collaboration and persistence for Air Movement and Control.
We will be working closely with many organizations and individuals who contribute so much to AMCA’s mission in order to advance the health, growth and integrity of the air movement and control industry!
We held a Patent Award dinner last week for some Ruskin and other Johnson Controls team members.
Cool ideas get recognized!
I consider my business associates friends. Together with my coworkers we create a unified team. Friends can help you identify the blind spots. Ruskin is getting better every day, but I want to thank my business friends for their help recommending improvements as we grow together.
My church in Downtown KC gets the volunteer gig. Here are some friends at a pancake breakfast for all. Nice work Resurrection Downtown.
Maybe you never look up at the HVAC in a building, but I do. Here are some spiral duct components at our Eastern Sheet Metal plant in Cincinnati. 316 SS and my boot in photo 1. Gray steel is “paint ready” and the shiny stuff is good to go up in the ceiling as-is. Nice work team!
