In November 1914, a committee comprised of engineers from the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers
(ASRE) began consulting with fire department officials from New York City to develop a regulation aimed to enhance the safety of refrigerating plants in the city.
The most visible change is the refreshed Society's logo, which was created in 1959 when the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers
and the American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers merged to form ASHRAE.
