In this hands-on class participants will learn about building energy science and pressure diagnostics, manometer usage and participate in a Blower Door and Duct Testing session that includes both pressurization and depressurization techniques and duct testing including total leakage and leakage to the outside.
In this hands-on class participants will review basic building energy science theory focusing on air flow diagnostics and building pressures including HVAC static pressure and airflow, air flow measurement techniques and devices currently allowed within Title 24 Energy Code. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in practical usage exercises with flow hood air flow management, grid airflow and static pressure measurements along with duct diagnostics using California Energy Commission (CEC) approved equipment.
In this hands-on class participants will learn about Building Science focusing on moisture issues, refrigerant charge verification and equipment calibration. This class combines the air flow techniques and principles covered in class #2 with refrigerant charge verification as required by Title 24 Energy Code.
In this hands-on class participants will learn about building energy science focusing on building pressures and ventilation including house ventilation requirements (ASHRAE 62-2 and Title 24) and issues, measuring ventilation flows and fan effects on building and room pressures. Attendees will practice measuring air flows and ventilation, duct leakage diagnostics, and room to room pressure diagnostics.
In this hands-on class participants will learn about building energy science focusing on building envelope performance, thermal by-pass, quality insulation installation, advanced framing. Attendees will actively participate in exercises using an infrared camera, combustion analyzer and inspecting wall sections.
