HVACR equipment is only as good as the quality of the installation! To ensure a quality installation, ACCA developed the Quality Installation Specification (QI). It is essential that educators and trainers teach QI as part of their programs. Don Prather of ACCA will conduct a session at this year's conference that will provide a road map for properly teaching QI to your students and customers.
Teaching codes should be part of your training programs. Bob Guenther from the International Code Council will inform you what technicians need to know relative to residential system instillation codes. Emphasis will also be placed on how the mechanical codes relate to auditing and retrofitting an HVAC installation. Both the International mechanical codes and uniform codes will be addressed.
The industry is transitioning from legacy 24Vac control wiring to equipment with serial communications. Tim Burke of White-Rodgers (founding member of the Climate Talk Alliance) will explain what Smart HVAC Systems are, how they work, and how to prepare technicians to work on them in a very simple and straight forward manner. The session will provide installation instruction and tips for training troubleshooting Smart HVAC equipment.
