Air distribution systems, which provide essential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) in buildings, directly (and substantially) contribute to occupant comfort level and productivity. In this webinar, we’ll explore the simple (and cost-effective) modifications you can make to the two fundamental types of air distribution systems during the retro-commissioning, Lighting, and Supplemental Load Reductions stages in order to increase energy and cost savings. In particular, we’ll discuss how you can apply these modifications and adjustments in order to reduce the energy loads of installed HVAC systems in existing buildings. Topics covered include the differences between the primary air distribution systems and how to transform a constant air volume system to a variable one, how to get rid of reheat systems and over-cooling problems, steps to maximize zone-level efficiency, damper maintenance procedures, and more.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
