Building commissioning has emerged as the preferred method of ensuring that building systems are installed and operated to provide the performance envisioned by the designer. While most commissioning processes focus on bringing building operation to the original design intent, Continuous Commissioning is different. Continuous Commissioning focuses on optimizing HVAC system operation and control for the existing building conditions. Continuous Commissioning is an ongoing process to resolve operating problems, improve comfort, optimize energy use and identify retrofits for existing commercial and institutional buildings and central plant facilities. Continuous Commissioning focuses on improving overall system control and operations for the building, as it is currently utilized, and on meeting existing facility needs.
This course is based on the document Continuous Commissioning Guidebook for Federal Energy Managers Maximizing Building Efficiency and Comfort; DOE – Federal Energy Management Program – October 2002.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
