How to Achieve Energy Efficient HVAC by Identifying and Fixing Inefficiencies
This course for facility managers will show you how to achieve energy efficient HVAC by identifying and fixing 7 common easy-to-fix HVAC inefficiencies.
For offices and other commercial buildings HVAC is the single largest energy use, and there is often good opportunity to achieve large energy cost and greenhouse gas savings by optimizing existing systems.
Many of these fixes don’t require much investment, and you may be able to get large energy savings at low cost.
More energy efficient HVAC will help you contribute to your organization’s sustainability targets, cut energy bills and potentially improve heating and cooling reliability whilst reducing costs.
Who should attend
Facility manager working for a mid to large sized energy user, whether in government or the private sector.
This training will show you 7 easy ways of reducing HVAC energy use, and is suited to buildings with a wide range of HVAC systems, from simple split system air conditioners through to large central systems.
Energy Efficient HVAC Learning outcomes
- Make quick changes that may give HVAC savings of 10% or more.
- Save energy with HVAC systems in buildings of all sizes, and in all climate zones.
- Explain clearly to your maintenance contractors any changes they may need to make.
- Specify low cost control systems that could potentially more than halve HVAC energy use in some parts of your facility
A certificate of participation will be issued.
There are 7 common inefficiencies – the course is broken into 7 short sections, each section focussed on one of inefficiencies which are preventing energy efficient HVAC operation.
This course is delivered in real time online, with a maximum of 17 participants.
You should be a facility manager, have a basic understanding of HVAC controls, and be able to engage effectively with your HVAC contractor. Come willing to share your experience and learning in implementing energy efficient HVAC improvements!
- You must have a reliable and fast internet connection that enables you to particulate using a webcam and headset, and a laptop or tablet with a keyboard.
- As interaction is a very important part of this course, participants who are not willing to use a webcam that displays your face in real time during the training may be removed from the training, at the discretion of the trainer.
