Excellence Conference Aims to Reduce the Energy Impact
of HVAC Equipment.
While the Presidential candidates look for ways to
ignite the American economy, they need to look no
further than the HVACR industry.
Estimates show that improperly installed HVAC equipment
costs the American public $750,000,000,000.00 per year
in the form of higher utility bills.
How many jobs could be created by fixing this problem
and putting three quarters of a trillion dollars back
into the American economy annually?
HVAC Excellence knows the energy efficiency of heating
and cooling equipment can be maximized through proper
education. However the quality of education a technician
receives is only as good as the teachers leading their
In order for HVACR educators to keep current on
technological changes, code changes and better teaching
techniques, HVAC Excellence created the National HVACR
Educators and Trainers Conference. The 2013 HVAC
Excellence National HVACR Educators and Trainers
Conference will focus on reducing the energy impact of
HVAC equipment with educational sessions for instructors
and trainers such as:
Energy Auditing - This 10 hour session will
provide attendees a greater understanding of building
science and its correlation to energy auditing. Topics
covered will include UA Delta T, blower doors, duct
blaster and combustion analysis. Attendees will
participate in an exercise to walk them through a
complete energy audit, establish the cost and
feasibility of energy conservation measures, produce a
savings to investment ratio and return on investment
Duct and Building Envelope Tightness Testing for Code
Compliance - States and local authorities are
rapidly adopting and enforcing Residential Energy
Conservation Codes that require performance testing of
conditioned air distribution systems. Duct systems must
be verified for air tightness by means of calibrated
testing equipment. Students exiting HVAC training
programs will benefit greatly by understanding these
codes, duct testing requirements, equipment and
procedures. Topics addressed are: duct leakage rates as
described in IECC 2009, typical testing requirements,
testing procedures, code required documentation, and
building envelope tightness testing.
Thermal Training - This session will address an
outline of training programs to add high demand solar
thermal skill sets to existing HVACR programs putting
students in a unique position to enter fast growing
careers. Providing attendees with the unique training
criteria, the operational steps needed to launch a solar
thermal education program and the support services
available to integrate a solar thermal program into
existing HVACR training program.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics currently projects that
65.6% of HVACR service personnel in the industry in the
year 2020 will be people that are not in the industry
today. The HVACR industry's future success is dependent
upon the quality of education we provide the next
generation of HVACR service technicians.
