The 3-day class is built on a comprehensive training platform that covers 5 distinct topics showcasing the ACCA “step-by-step” residential HVAC system design process to ensure a quality installation.

Heating and Cooling Load Examples using MJ8ae will be presented in conjunction with the Manual J Do's & Don'ts to ensure accuracy throughout the entire load calculation evaluation. Real-world procedures will be shown on how to conduct a detailed site-survey to ensure capturing important construction details when building the load calculation report.

  • Manual D Session: One will learn the important steps of designing a ducted distribution system (selecting appropriate ducts & fittings) to deliver the required airflow (CFM) at an acceptable velocity (FPM) to all spaces being conditioned.
  • ACCA Standard 5 & Real-World Installation Tips Session: Step-by-step review on the ACCA Standard 5 (HVAC Quality Installation Specification) by which all quality HVAC installations should be designed and installed. Practical real-world suggestions to minimize call-backs on common installation problems to include zoning and commissioning.
