When you need technical documentation, don’t call an HVAC contractor to the rescue, despite what the Pocono Record says. In a recent “Write to Know” column, the paper incorrectly (albeit humorously) stated: “ASHRAE is the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, a nonprofit technical writing organization.” For the record, ASHRAE has nothing to do with technical writing. Instead, it’s “a nonprofit technical organization whose 55,000 members influence the direction of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) technology by creating industry standards and recommended procedures and guidelines, developing research and writing technical information.” The Society for Technical Communication (STC), on the other hand, is a nonprofit technical writing organization.
