Class Description

Comfort conditions for spaces in a commercial building may be achieved in one of two basic ways: by applying single zone units to each space or by using systems that provide control to multiple spaces. This course centers on the skills and knowledge necessary to design one of the most common HVAC systems, a constant volume air distribution system using single zone packaged and split system equipment. The principles taught in this class will help anyone involved in the design or renovation of projects using single zone packaged equipment to develop more quickly cost effective designs. Participants learn to determine building zones and acceptable compromises in comfort control. How to design the air distribution system for good air motion and sizing of the duct system is covered in detail. Achieving the most effective selection of packaged (rooftop) and split system equipment is covered and how to develop a sequence of control to maintain comfort design. Participants use workshops to apply the material covered in the class to a typical project. Computer-assisted work sessions are used to practice the skills.

Students will learn to:

  • Choose building zones when served by a single zone unit and make initial system decisions.
  • Layout and select air terminals for good room air motion.
  • Layout and design a low pressure duct system.
  • Select the best type of packaged unit that will meet the required zone psychrometric conditions.
  • Layout and select an air handler with a DX coil that will match building load and select a matching split system condensing unit.
  • Select and establish fan performance based on air system design conditions.
  • Describe a control sequence and strategy which meets the design objectives.
  • Understanding the application of Green Building practices.

A cumulative score of 70% is required to pass this course. The score is a combination of attendance, class participation, and a demonstration of skills and knowledge through quizzes and/or work sessions.

Suggested Prerequisites: CSD400, and a working knowledge of computers. Students are encouraged to bring their own computer, but it is not required.
