An Introduction to Energy Efficient HVAC Controls
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses 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.


Energy efficient control systems are complete, reliable, fully functional, maintainable, fully integrated, addressable, control systems that have been properly designed, installed, and commissioned for efficient and cost-effective operation. In existing facilities, the design is 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.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and electrical engineers, and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to energy efficient control systems for HVAC systems.
