Day 1: ACCA Manual J 8th Edition – Residential Load Calculations
Receive complete instructions for estimating heat loss and heat gain for residential structures. Using MJ8ae we will cover the process that produces equipment sizing loads for single-family-detached homes, small multi-unit structures, condominiums, townhouses, and manufactured homes. It provides quick supplemental details and advanced topics as well as supporting reference tables and appendices.
Day 2: Manual S 2nd Edition
The focus here is how to properly select equipment for a dwelling using a detailed heating & cooling load calculation and actual OEM performance data from different manufacturers (Air Conditioning/ Heat Pumps/ Gas Furnaces). The duct design portion may begin at some point during this 2nd day.
Day 3: Manual D 3rd Edition – Residential Duct Systems
Designing a residential duct system as per ACCA Manual D will be the focus. You can apply this procedure to constant volume systems and zoned, variable air volume systems, over the full range of duct construction materials. Manual D also includes the most comprehensive equivalent length data ever published. Day 3 is finished up with instruction on following the guidance in Manual T.
