Energy Efficient HVAC Controls - 3 PDH
This course covers automatic temperature and humidity controls, space pressurization controls, safety controls, and energy monitoring and central supervisory control systems for heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The control system shall be a complete, reliable, fully functional, maintainable, fully integrated, addressable, control system that has been properly designed, installed, and commissioned. In existing facilities, the design shall be integrated and interfaced into the existing control system so that the new equipment and conditions can be controlled and monitored similar to the existing controlled equipment.
