Noble draws a crowd
October 21, 2016 | By HPAC Magazine
It was standing room only for the basic furnace performance testing seminar, one of five complimentary educational sessions held during Noble’s 2016 BIG Tuesday Heating Show held on October 4 between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. just north of Toronto in Woodbridge, ON.
In total over 750 people were in attendance over the course of the evening. Starting at 6 p.m., the performance testing seminar was busting at the seams as 155 attendees gathered to hear about electrical basics for furnace servicing and trouble shooting as well as gas meter clocking, CFM calculation, temperature rise and more.
The other sessions, running every hour on the hour, also attracted significant crowds, including the interactive seminar on HRV air balancing with five hands-on interactive HRV balancing stations.
“Seminars were definitely the star of this year’s event, plus the 44 per cent increase in number of exhibits,” reported Ulyana Fedyna, marketing manager, HVAC & Hydronics with Noble.
While the educational sessions were a draw, the main show floor was crowded with attendees visiting over 65 exhibits.
The centre area of the show floor was reserved for the pile of door prizes with draws being held every hour.
The giveaways included eight complete furnace packages (including a WeatherKing 92 per cent AFUE furnace from Rheem, a Honeywell Lyric WiFi thermostat, and an Aprilaire 600 humidifier and air cleaner).
And what does the company have planned for 2017? “At Noble, we are always aiming for bigger and better things, so of course we are planning an even bigger show next year,” says Fedyna.
