HVAC QI Technician Checklist for EnergyStar V3

Next Class : March 20, 2013
$329 | Click here to register
Credits: 7 RESNET PDU's

Target Audience:
HVAC Contractors & Technicians,
Energy Raters

This is a one-day class designed with the checklist as the outline.  It was created with the technician in mind, discussing ways to gather the information and to complete the task in the most efficient way possible.  A working residential air conditioning system will be used for “hands-on” demonstrations of the various measurement techniques and procedures. Where those measurements should be input on the ENERGY STAR checklist will be covered.
