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: 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
  • Familiarizing with the design principles of distribution systems, which include pressure drop, supply requirements, return air design, supply air outlets, duct layout, and duct sizes
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the “Advanced Strategy Guideline: Air Distribution Basics and Duct Design” prepared by Arlan Burdick-IBACOS, Inc. and published by the U.S. Department of Energy, Building America Program.

COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Improving Process Heating Systems Performance
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes basic process heating applications and equipment, and outlines opportunities for energy and performance improvements. It also discusses the merits of using a systems approach in identifying and implementing these improvement opportunities for Fuel-Based and Electric-Based heating systems. Furthermore, it provides recommendations to financially justify process heating improvement projects (System Economics).

 

Process heating is essential in the manufacture of most consumer and industrial products, including those made out of metal, plastic, rubber, carbon fiber, concrete, glass, and ceramics. Process heating systems are broken into three basic categories: Fuel-Based Process Heating, Electric-Based Process Heating, and Steam-Based Process Heating all of which are discussed in details.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical, industrial and process engineers, designers, manufacturers and all personnel involved in the planning, design and installation of process heating systems.
