  • Chillers, Refrigerant Compressors, and Heating Systems: 6 PDH

    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.
