An Introduction to Energy Efficient HVAC Controls

An Introduction to Energy Efficient HVAC Controls
Note: This PDH course is a recorded video presentation and does not qualify as a live interactive course or webinar.
Course Highlights
This online engineering PDH video presentation provides an introduction to the control devices, systems and features that will permit energy efficient operation of HVAC systems in buildings. This course covers automatic temperature and humidity controls, space pressurization controls, safety controls, energy monitoring and central supervisory controls for HVAC systems.


In new construction, an HVAC control system is a complete, reliable, fully functional, maintainable, fully integrated and addressable control system that has been properly designed, installed and commissioned. In existing facilities, the design is typically 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 1 PDH online video presentation is intended for mechanical and electrical engineers, as well as design and construction professionals interested in learning about, or involved in, the planning and operation of energy efficient controls for HVAC systems.

Learning Objectives
This PE continuing education video presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
  • Knowing when to apply and not-apply humidity controls
  • Knowing what parameters to monitor and control for air handlers
  • Learning about the conditions to be controlled at central HVAC plants
  • Learning about the special control issues with variable-air-volume (VAV) systems
  • Understanding the importance of contractor submittals for control systems
  • Learning about the limited situations where simultaneous heating and cooling controls may be allowable
  • Learning about mechanical ventilation controls
  • Understanding the fundamentals of energy conservation control schemes
  • Learning about fire and smoke protection controls on HVAC systems
