HVAC retrofits for energy conservation
- COURSE OUTLINE
As a result of this course you will be able to:
- Specify retrofits to improve HVAC energy efficiency in existing commercial buildings.
- Describe the latest technologies in motor efficiency, on demand ventilation systems and controls.
- Explain applicable codes, standards and rebates.
- Use a simple software tool to predict energy savings.
Who should attend?
Architects; building owners; engineers; contractors; HVAC system designers, equipment manufacturer representatives and contractors; energy efficiency specialists; facility managers; commissioning authorities; control system technicians; facility engineers; and anyone interested in learning more about HVAC retrofits.
Variable frequency drives, direct digital controls and CO2-based demand controlled ventilation systems can reduce energy use and save money. Join us to learn about these state-of-the-art technologies and the tools you can use immediately to help secure your next sale. We’ll share real world HVAC retrofit case studies, discuss current and future codes and standards and explore tools that can help you predict energy savings for your clients.
