HeatSpring, alongside Plumbing & Mechanical, pme, Supply House Times and CE Campus, recently announced its latest online course: “Integrated HVAC Engineering: Mastering Comfort, Health and Efficiency”. This a multidisciplinary online design course based on 30 years of data and experience. The course goes beyond ASHRAE and LEED standards to the heart of HVAC engineering: integrating comfort, health and efficiency to the maximum benefit of the building occupants.

The course is taught by Robert Bean, R.E.T., P.L. (Eng.), a registered engineering technologist in building construction and a professional licensee in mechanical engineering. Bean is president of Indoor Climate Consulting Inc. and director of www.healthyheating.com. He is a volunteer instructor for the ASHRAE Learning Institute and serves ASHRAE TC’s 6.1, 6.5, 7.4 and SSPC 55 Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy. He is a special expert on IAPMO’s new Uniform Solar Energy and Hydronics Code committee.

This course is for working design practitioners (who may be a recent graduates from architectural, mechanical engineering or interior design programs), as well as those from the manufacturing, distribution, contracting and inspection professions. Experienced professionals who may want to expand their knowledge of building science, indoor environmental quality, systems controls, radiant heating and cooling and fluid hydraulics will also benefit from the program. The course is approved for 24 AIA LU/HSW Credits by the American Institute of Architects (via CE Campus).

Included in the course are more than a dozen Excel tools for performing critical HVAC design calculations. In the final week of the course, students will submit a capstone project that incorporates everything they’ve learned. This will include running thermal comfort calculations and designing a radiant-based hybrid HVAC system with a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS).

The course is currently available for a limited time at a discounted rate of $895, but space is limited to only 50 professionals.
