This course deals with the calculation of heating and cooling loads. The accurate calculation of these loads provides a sound bridge between building design decisions and an operating building. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: Recognize the importance of accurate load calculations; Define the different types of load; State how indoor and outdoor conditions are established; List terms that are commonly used to describe aspects of heating and cooling loads. Explain the: Factors relevant to external load analysis; Estimation of heat gains from occupants, lighting, and equipment; Importance of manual and computerized load calculation procedures; Computer load and energy analysis software; Effects of high altitude on psychrometric charts and performance data; Demonstrate how to include motor heat in cooling load calculations. Describe the: relationship between air temperature and velocity pressure, and air temperature and fan energy heat; Effects of duct losses; Manual and computerized load calculation procedures; Outputs from computer load programs and explain how they should be studied; Types of calculations performed by computer programs; Discuss the typical inputs required by computer programs to calculate HVAC loads. (I-P), 1.5 PDHs. This course is approved by AIA. It can be subscribed to independently, as a part of Loads and Modeling Course Package or Fundamentals: HVAC Systems (I-P) Course Package.
