John M. Rattenbury, PE, CIPE, LEEDap
Do you recall a time when the LEED-NC EA Credit 4 was to simply not use already banned CFC’s in HVAC equipment and your project earned a point? How has this credit changed over time and what were the driving forces? Does the present version of the credit make sense? What does the qualifying formula come from and what is its scientific basis? This course will examine the history of the refrigerant management credit of LEED and discuss the rationale and efficacy so practicing engineers involved in LEED projects can have a more critical understanding of what the credit is trying to accomplish.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
