Class Description
For anyone involved in the selection, design, operation, or maintenance of commercial buildings, a working knowledge of the various HVAC systems is essential. This class is targeted at building professionals with 0-3 year’s experience who want to expand their knowledge of HVAC systems, their proper application, and how to achieve high performance operation. The class starts with an explanation of the environmental conditions which influence comfort and how HVAC systems control these conditions. Participants learn about the design process and criteria for system selection. The various classifications of HVAC systems and associated distribution systems are explained along with the function and operation of all the major system components. The class evaluates over 15 types of HVAC systems, describing how the systems work, applications and basic advantages and shortcomings. Each system type is evaluated based on performance for energy and water use, first cost, life cycle cost, and comfort performance. System options and modifications which contribute to energy efficiency, sustainability, and high performance are also explored. The class consists of a mix of presentation and workshops which give the student opportunity to apply the concepts presented. Students will be better able to make informed decisions about the best choices of HVAC systems for various applications and how systems can best meet the project goals of performance, comfort, cost, and sustainability.

This course is run at the end of the week before the CSD400 HVAC Design Fundamentals  and can serve as a good introduction to that class.
