Codes and Standards of HVAC Equipment and Systems

After attending the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Identify and understand changes introduced in the codes/standards and their implications on the design and operation of HVAC equipment and systems
  • Plan and design HVAC equipment and systems in compliance with applicable codes and standards
  • Identify and select procedures for efficient operation of various HVAC equipment and systems
  • Understand which compliance option is most suitable for a given circumstance
  • Identify regulations which pertain to your own specific situation

Understanding codes and regulations governing design, maintenance and operation of HVAC Equipment and Systems (E&S) is a must for all individuals working with HVAC systems. Proper design and operation of HVAC E&S not only requires a thorough understanding of relevant codes and standards, but also it requires one to stay up-to-date with all changes introduced in these codes and standards. This course helps participants to be knowledgeable with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems with respect to requirements of Part 5 (Environmental Separation) and Part 6 (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) of the Provincial Building Codes. It also covers information on applicable standards referenced in these codes such as ASHRAE standards 55, 62.1, and 90.1. Case studies and workshops will be used to explore the prescriptive and the performance compliance options available in these codes/standards. Recent changes introduced in these codes and standards and their implications on the design and operation of HVAC Equipment and Systems will also be addressed.
