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.
