Why Choose this Training Course?

The purpose of an air distribution system of HVAC is to transfer the required conditioned air to meet the necessary space comfort level. The components of the system are selected to supply the minimum required air under standard conditions. These conditions may be shifted over time. The process of air balancing HVAC systems help to maintain space comfort level under different real conditions with minimum energy consumption and maximum reliability. Therefore, this process should be performed perfectly to obtain the best performance of HVAC systems with minimum cost and maximum reliability. 

This Air Balancing of HVAC System training course will help the participants to clearly understand the procedures of the process of air balancing HVAC systems. The design and selection of air distribution systems will be reviewed in this course. This Air Balancing of HVAC System training course will cover the best procedures of testing and adjusting HVAC setting and how to analyze the balancing results to find out the system problems.  The training course will discuss how to improve the energy efficiency of HVAC systems based on the air balancing results . Also, several case studies will be studied in this course. 

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Benefits of Process Air Balancing HVAC Systems
  • Air Volumetric Measurement Methods
