DOE Webinar April 28: Calculating Loads for Heating and Cooling

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Building Technologies Program is offering a webinar on Thursday, April 28, 2011, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon Eastern titled “Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Right-Sizing Part 1: Calculating Loads.” Register now to attend this free webinar.

Calculating energy requirements for heating and cooling a home is the first critical step in the design process for correctly sizing the HVAC system. Designers use models of electrical loads to help them select the optimal equipment and duct designs to deliver the appropriate volume of conditioned air to rooms of the home.

This webinar, presented by IBACOS — one of DOE’s Building America Research Teams — will highlight the key criteria required to accurately calculate heating and cooling loads. During the webinar, experts will also discuss current industry rules of thumb, perceptions, and barriers to correctly sizing HVAC systems.

Target audiences include residential builders and HVAC design firms, contractors, installers, manufacturers, and distributors.
