    Add to cart
    How airtight are the buildings you are responsible for? What is the energy load and indoor air quality like in your buildings? The only way to know is to perform a study. Despite common assumptions, measurements have shown that typical U.S. commercial buildings are not particularly airtight. In this course we present a recent simulation study on the impact of improving envelope airtightness in U.S. commercial buildings. You get documented, verifiable facts, report charts and graphs illustrating the findings, and a discussion from the report on the results of the study, Investigation of the Impact of Commercial Building Envelope Airtightness on HVAC Energy Use.Instructor: Seth Grablow, PE

    Chillers, Refrigerant Compressors, and Heating Systems: 5 PDH

    $30.00
    Add to cart
    This course focuses on the equipment and equipment components used to generate heating and cooling. It does not include fans and pumps. This distinction is clear for most equipment types, such as unit heaters, boilers, and chillers. However, for packaged air-conditioning (AC) equipment the distinction can be subtle. Most packaged AC equipment is treated as a unit by performance rating procedures. Hence, separation of the fans is difficult. For this study, only the refrigerant compressors of packaged equipment are considered.
