Jan 30 - 31, 2023 /
Course Code: 13-0114-ONL23
This course is held online over 2 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):
10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)
After participating in this course, you will:
- Gain insight into the individual components of an HVAC/R system.
- Understand basic psychrometric terms and applications.
- Understand basic pressure enthalpy terms and how it applies to an HVAC/R system.
- Recognize and decipher energy-efficiency rates like SEER and COP.
- Identify trends in refrigerants being used in new equipment.
- Identify trends in equipment selection being used in single-family and multi-family residential construction.
- Identify proper procedures pertaining to installation, commissioning, and maintenance.
Many buildings managers, operators, designers and construction people deal with and manage HVAC and refrigeration systems on a daily basis, yet a large number work with these systems without a full appreciation of the design and operating considerations and principles. This seminar is designed to offer practical insight and understanding of the critical factors of these systems that are required for the safe and efficient operation of these highly technical and complex systems.
- Building Envelope Considerations
- Basic HVAC/R System Concepts
- Refrigerant and Pressure v Temperature Relationship
- Major Components: Compressors, Condensers, Evaporators, and Metering Devices
- Pressure Enthalpy: Net Refrigeration Effect – external factors impacting capacity and efficiency.
- Refrigerant Charging, Refrigerant Recovery, and Evacuation.
- Basic Commissioning and Maintenance Requirements
Who Should Attend
Consultants • Facilities • Trained Technical Operators • Professional Personnel Responsible for Designing, Specifying and Maintaining HVAC And Refrigeration • Others Involved in the Retrofit, Installation and Repair of Such Equipment and Systems.
Time: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Eastern Time

Concluding Remarks and Final Adjournment
Dan has developed and instructed HVAC/R courses, seminars, and workshops for over 15 years. He started with a very hands-on approach, working for Emerson as a gas technician and refrigeration mechanic (313A) across Canada. Working for Emerson is where he began teaching end users, technicians, engineers, and everyone in between as the product expert for Liebert Canada.
Dan went on to teach HVAC/R at Humber College for 10 years, where he developed and delivered a practical understanding of 15 different courses, both in the classroom and in the lab. He has recently moved on to Evolve Home Services as their Director of Technical Services. At Evolve, he is responsible for overseeing residential mechanical design, equipment selection, technical training, and service.
