Greenheck Offers ONLINE HVAC University IN JANUARY

January 11, 2021

A Chinese proverb states, "Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back."  We all know how important continuing education is, and building owners, engineers, and facilities teams who regularly engage in continuing education have the best chance of creating long-lasting, efficient systems that will keep building occupants comfortable in all sorts of weather.

Registering is easy!  Just let us know who you are below and we'll contact Greenheck on your behalf!  All classes qualify for one PDH credit.

Take a look at the class schedule and see if you can expand your HVAC knowledge this month:

  • Wednesday, January 13 (1PM EST): HVLS Fan Design, Application and Specification.  This course covers the proper selection and specification of high volume, low speed (HVLS) fans for different applications.  An overview of HVLS performance testing, performance data, safety and industry standards is included.

  • Thursday, January 14 (1PM EST): Conditioning High and 100% Quantities of Outdoor Air.  This course discusses common HVAC systems found in commercial and institutional applications and the methods used to condition high percentages of outdoor air with an o0verivew and comparison of single-zone variable air volume (VAV), multi-zone variable air volume (VAV) and dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS).

  • Wednesday, January 20 (1PM EST): Increasing Design Efficiency Using Software.  This course discusses how to be more efficient in the design process using Greenheck's software.  It covers three major software platforms, including cCAPS®, CAPS®, and Revit® integration. Included is a demonstration on how to size, apply, specify, schedule and generate AutoCAD® or REvit drawings for fans, energy recovery, packaged rooftop units, louvers, and dampers.  Energy recovery payback analysis and other time-saving features are included.

  • Thursday, January 21 (1PM EST): Make-Up Air Ventilation.  This course discusses make-up air systems used in commercial kitchens and industrial applications. Topics include heating and cooling technologies, energy reduction strategies, direct and indirect gas heating technology, controls, UL requirement for cooling in kitchens, demand-based ventilation for saving energy, processing make-up air, and building pressurization.

  • Wednesday, January 27 (1PM EST): Air-to-Air Energy Recovery.  This course discusses the benefits of air-to-air energy recovery applied to ventilation systems and energy recovery technology (devices), pros and cons of available technology, psychrometrics, payback analysis, and the latest energy standards and code mandates.

  • Thursday, January 28 (1PM EST): Kitchen Ventilation Systems:  Meeting Codes and Standards. Based on good kitchen design principles, this course focuses on products and concepts that promote energy efficient kitchen ventilation design. The value of demand ventilation (variable volume) systems and strategies regarding the application and selection of the right system configuration for various applications is discussed.
