COURSE TITLE: Tips on Saving Energy in Your Home
COURSE NO: M04-044
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Tips on Saving Energy in Your Home
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides tips and information on how to save energy and money in your home through simple and achievable changes.

 

In the face of our current global sustainability challenges, it is our duty as a society to make individual changes to our personal lives to reduce our impact wherever possible. These changes should start within our homes, and contrary to what the majority may believe, we actually have the ability to save money and energy in our own home.

 

Saving energy reduces the demand for the resources needed to make energy, and improving your energy efficiency is like adding another clean energy source to an electric power grid. This results in reduced utility bills and additional money in your pocket. Furthermore, improving your energy efficiency can also improve the comfort of your home and your quality of life.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, mechanical, and sustainable engineers, homeowners and contractors as well as others interested in learning more about how to save energy and money in homes.

COURSE TITLE: All About Gas Fireplaces
COURSE NO: M03-031
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
All About Gas Fireplaces
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the basics of gas fireplaces and briefly describes their different types, venting systems, efficiency ratings, ignition and controls, as well as their heat exchange and transfer. It also describes what to look for in a safe, energy-efficient gas fireplace as well as the problems that can be encountered with certain technologies. This course also provides information about where to locate the fireplace for maximum benefit and efficiency.

 

Changes in the way houses are built and renovated have made most contemporary homes incompatible with conventional wood-burning fireplaces. Most notably, the increased insulation and improved air-tightness of today's homes run counter to the large amounts of air required by conventional wood fireplaces. Such fireplaces are also extremely inefficient and produce high levels of harmful emissions, which pollute outdoor air and can have dangerous effects on indoor air quality. Some new fireplace designs offer a safe, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional wood fireplaces.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, architects, designers, contractors, homeowners, and gas fireplace manufacturers.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the different types of gas fireplaces and their venting systems
  • Familiarizing with common efficiency ratings
  • Familiarizing with different types of ignitions and controls
  • Understanding the basics of heat exchange and transfer
  • Knowing where to locate a fireplace for maximum benefit
  • Understanding the safety tips for operating a gas fireplace
  • Learning how to use the gas fireplace efficiently
