COURSE TITLE: Air Distribution Basics and Duct Design
COURSE NO: M03-044
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Air Distribution Basics and Duct Design
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the information needed to design the air distribution system to deliver the proper amount of conditioned air to a space in an energy efficient house.

 

The heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is arguably the most complex system installed in a house and is responsible for a substantial component of the total house energy use. A properly sized HVAC system will provide the desired comfort and will run efficiently. Right-sizing an HVAC system includes the selection of equipment and the design of the air distribution system to meet the accurate predicted heating and cooling loads of the house. This process begins with an accurate understanding of the heating and cooling loads on a space; however, a full HVAC design involves more than just the load estimate calculation; the load calculation is the first step of the iterative HVAC design procedure.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers, architects, contractors and other professionals interested in learning more about air distribution and duct design for energy efficient homes.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning the different terminologies and concepts of HVAC systems that relate to air distribution
  • Understanding the performance criteria related to air distribution systems, which include temperature mixing and uniformity, supply outlets, and noise considerations
  • Understanding the design benefits of integrating the HVAC system into the early schematic design phase of the house

COURSE TITLE: Duct Sealing in Large Buildings
COURSE NO: M02-016
Duct Sealing in Large Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the importance of duct sealing with respect to saving energy in air delivery systems in commercial buildings.  This course also explains that the duct sealing method analyzed in this report is technically viable; however, more work is needed to develop a practical cost effective methodology for this process.

 

Considerable research has been conducted on the leakage levels of various types of ducts and duct fittings. Electricity energy savings potential by eliminating air leakage from ducts in large commercial buildings is on the order of 10 kWh/m2 per year.  The research discussed in this paper is based on two large commercial buildings, using a new technology that simultaneously seals duct leaks and measures effective leakage area of ducts.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers who design duct systems and write specifications for ductwork sealing in large commercial buildings.

Learning Objectives

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

  • The importance of duct sealing to safe energy
  • The practicality of using aerosol based duct sealants in commercial systems
  • Issues related to researching duct sealing methods
  • Effective leakage area evaluation criteria
  • Aerosol concentration measurements

COURSE TITLE: Duct Systems
COURSE NO: M02-051
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Duct Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents basic information about the various types of duct systems, their classification and application. It also explains the factors involved when sizing duct to comply with specified building requirements. Furthermore this course illustrates the procedures and steps of how to balance duct systems.

 

To deliver conditioned air to a space, you need air carriers. These carriers are called ducts. They are made of sheet metal or some other structural material depending on their application.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, designers, manufacturers and anyone interested to gain an understanding of duct systems.

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

  • Understanding the classification of ducts
  • Familiarizing with the duct material of construction
  • Understanding the different  types of duct systems
  • Learning how ductwork is constructed
  • Understanding the factors involved in sizing ductwork
  • Learning how to balance duct systems

COURSE TITLE: HVAC - How to Size and Design Ducts
COURSE NO: M06-032
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC - How to Size and Design Ducts
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course reviews the above criteria in detail and provides guidance on the planning, layout and sizing of supply and return air ducts.

 

In air conditioning systems the duct is considered a static component of the installation through which air flows within the building, connecting all parts of the system. Ducts can be best described as arteries of the central air-conditioning system. These play an important role in keeping the whole HVAC system fit and achieving comfortable conditions throughout its life span.

 

Defects in a duct system can waste hundreds of dollars a year by forcing the HVAC system to run longer than necessary. Ductwork problems also make certain rooms too hot or too cold at different times of the year, while introducing dirt and bad odors into the forced-air system.

 

The objective of good duct design is to:

  • Optimize duct size (manufacturing costs);
  • Minimize duct system friction losses (operational cost);
  • Reduce duct system acoustics (environmental costs); and
  • Minimize air balance procedures (commissioning costs).

 

This 6 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and HVAC engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers, property and estate managers, O&M personnel, and other professionals interested in gaining a better understanding of sizing and designing duct systems.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about the velocity and pressure classifications of ductwork
  • Applying various materials and shapes that provide the most cost effective alternative
  • Learning about the various supply air duct configurations
  • Learning about the various duct sizing methods, including the velocity method, equal friction method and static regain method
  • Understanding the interaction between fan and duct systems
  • Learning about duct construction and reinforcement
  • Familiarizing with sound engineering practices for duct layout and routing
  • Learning about ductwork testing and estimating system performance
  • Learning about the various duct cleaning methods
  • Knowing the typical performance characteristics of a duct system
  • Understanding the importance of system balancing and optimization
