Establishes analytical backgrounds for calculating heating, cooling and ventilation loads required in commercial, institutional and residential buildings. Topics include use of climatic data, comfort conditions, ASHRAE criteria standards, and methods of determining heat loss and heat gains. Computer-aided techniques will be demonstrated.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have a basic, working understanding of:
Calculate the heat transmission coefficients for any building construction types.
Demonstrate a working knowledge of the physiological principles governing comfort and health by applying the ASHRAE standards and guidelines to HVAC system design.
Establish both indoor and outdoor design conditions for any building in any climate.
Calculate sensible heat, latent heat, and sensible heat ratio and ratio line.
Conduct heating, cooling and ventilation load calculations both manually and computer aided.
Estimate HVAC loads for various types of buildings by using industry standard methods - ASHRAE.
Use psychrometric chart to quantify the physical & thermodynamic properties of the working fluids.
Analyze air-conditioning processes on the psychrometric chart.
Use computer software to conduct process analysis and refrigeration capacity.
