Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems are among the biggest energy users in commercial buildings. The HVAC Energy Analysis certificate focuses on HVAC and introduces students to commercial HVAC equipment, how these systems work, how they are controlled, how to operate them more efficiently, and what system improvements can be made to increase overall performance and energy savings. Students learn to identify commercial HVAC system types and the energy impact of each. Calculations are used to determine HVAC system efficiency.
