This course focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to ensure correct HRV commissioning in residential projects. Through interactive learning and hands-on commissioning activities, students will become familiar with different types of HRV’s and have the confidence to both commission equipment and provide expertise on system selection and installation. This course is aimed at Energy Advisors, HVAC contractors, and building inspectors requiring the knowledge and skills to take responsibility for HRV installation and commissioning.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
