HVAC Efficiency and Equipment Optimization-SI Version
* Identify a variety of considerations for improving the efficiency of an HVAC system * Define common methods of expressing refrigeration capacity (which is measuring the ability of the system to move heat) * Discuss common methods of expressing refrigeration efficiency (which is measuring the energy used by the system to move heat)
HVAC is often a major component of the energy costs in a building. The efficiency of HVAC is dependent on both the efficiency of the equipment and the efficiency of the system – how it is designed and operated. Choosing the lowest cost system will often be a mistake when lifecycle costs are taken into account. However even high-efficiency equipment can underperform if not operated optimally. This course looks at a variety of key success factors to optimize the efficiency of an HVAC system. It also explains how the efficiency of HVAC units is measured, and how the overall capacity of a system can be expressed.
