Air Handling Systems Efficiency

Feb 13, 2018 - 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

HVAC professionals will be given a foundation and overview of air conditioning systems, integrated demand side management, and related Title 24 measures. Attendees will learn how to minimize the cost of large, commercial central air conditioning system while keeping the facility comfortable. Major topics include variable and constant air-volume systems, adjustable speed-drives, ventilation, economy cycle, and other efficiency opportunities. Examples will be presented that demonstrate a model for analyzing typical, variable air-volume retrofit economics.
Seminar highlights:

  • Identify the components of a central plant system and explain how the chiller, cooling tower, boiler, air handling system, and pumps function to remove heat loads
  • Identify the major components of an air handling system and describe how they function
  • Describe how different fan characteristics affect the system's efficiency

Who should attend:

  • Building engineers
  • Facility managers
  • Facility operators
  • Maintenance personnel


David Wylie earned his B.S. from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo and subsequently achieved a Registered Professional Engineer License in California. Energy efficiency was getting more attention and an interest in cost analysis led David to completing an MBA at National University which provided him with even more tools to analyze energy efficiency investment from both a mechanical and financial perspective.
