The cooling load is the amount of heat energy to be extracted from a building space to keep the indoor temperature, humidity and air quality within a specified range. This is the load that must be handled by the air-conditioning system. The calculation of the cooling loads is the single most important step in determining the size the cooling equipment. Proper sizing of HVAC equipment can mean savings in initial & operating cost of mechanical equipment and increased comfort to occupants. Equipment over sizing causes frequent cycling of equipment and poor dehumidification during cooling months.
This 5 - hour course provides a procedure for preparing a manual calculation for cooling load.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
