Class Description
This course covers the subjects that are fundamental in the design of all types of HVAC systems. Students learn the fundamental principles of HVAC design, including psychrometrics, heat transfer, mechanical refrigeration, and load estimating. Participants will become proficient with HVAC’s two most important design tools, the psychrometric chart, and the pressure enthalpy diagram. At the completion of the course, participants know how to do an accurate commercial load estimate that is the basis to the other system design decisions. In addition the participant will be able to use psychrometric principles and the P-h diagram to describe and analyze HVAC processes.  The concepts of this course are a recommended prerequisite for taking the other three courses and the building blocks of the student’s HVAC design career. Computer assisted work sessions and a design project are used to practice the principles taught.
