Hey Ed, Is Manual K Good for Canada?

In This Edition of “Hey Ed,” Ed Talks About Manual K® in Relation to Canada

Hey Ed, is Manual K® good for Canada? The first time I was asked this question, I spent little bit of time trying to decipher what was really being asked of me. So, the first thing is that Canada doesn't use Manual J® per se. If you are in Quebec, could you use Manual J® and find out the design conditions for using Manual J®? The answer is yes and I'm gonna look over here because I can't remember the numbers. F 28 is the process or the standard; that's the correct word that I wanna use for Canada when doing its load calculations. If you're gonna be doing stuff north of our border, that's what you should be looking to use or follow. And that's the way I see it.
