A Comparative Analysis of Residential Heating Systems Online on-demand 200 1

Offered by:Propane Education & Research Council

Category:Energy and atmosphere

Architects, builders, contractors and homeowners today face a myriad of options for home heating systems. Traditional furnaces andb oilers, high efficiency models, heat pumps (both air-source andground-source), and even dual-fuel systems are all options. Sort ing o ut the best choice for a home, or location, requires taking a close look at system costs, efficiency levels, energy rates, c omfort l evels and the severity of the climate and any applicable incentives including tax credits. This learning unit is the resu lt of a research study performed to identify the best options for residential heating across all U.S. climate zones, based on the aforemen tioned variables. This on-demand, online course is self-paced and features a pre-recorded narrative that se rves as the instructor. This allows learners to read along with the narrator and listen to the information; similar to typical livei nstructio n. After completing the course a 10-question quiz must be completed. At least 8 of 10 questions must be answered correctly to earn credit for the learning unit. Start-to-finish this course should take between 75 and 85 minutes to complete. Learners may wi sh t o spend additional time to review concepts prior to completing the quiz. A certificate of completion can be printed for self-rep o rting and record-keeping needs.

A Comparative Analysis of Residential Water Heating Systems Online on-demand 200 1

Offered by:Propane Education & Research Council

Category:Water efficiency

Residential water heating is typically the third largest energy use in the home and can account for nearly a quarter of overall hous ehold energy consumption. Home residents depend on a reliable and sufficient supply of hot water for multiple uses in the home , and they are increasingly aware of the energy implications of different hot water systems. This course will take a look at a st udy done on Energy, Environmental and Economic Analysis of Residential Water Heating Systems. This study provides an energy, envi ronmental, and economic analysis of 11 residential water heating systems in 10 geographic locations throughout the United States, with emphasis on the performance of propane-based systems relative to alternatives. The objective of the study is to compare the different perfor mance and economic characteristics of water heating systems to inform builder, contractor, and homeowner decision s on water-heater s election. This on-demand, online course is self-paced and features a pre-recorded narrative that servesa s the instructor. This allows learners to read along with the narrator and listen to the information; similar to typical live instru ction. After completing the course a 10-question quiz must be completed. At least 8 of 10 questions must be answered correctly to ea rn credit for the learning unit. Start-to-finish this course should take approximately 50 - 55 minutes to complete. Learners m ay wis h to spend additional time to review concepts prior to completing the quiz. A certificate of completion can be printed for self-repo rting and record-keeping needs.

Category:Indoor environmental quality

This course provides an overview of acoustics and green building and demonstrates how important acoustic comfort is to occupants. Buildings are designed, constructed, and operated primarily for the purpose of providing healthy and productive spaces for "People" to work and live. "Acoustic Comfort" means providing an acoustic environment that is conducive to speech intelligibility, speech privacy, low distractions and annoyance, and concentration where appropriate. Current approaches to building design and construction are not meeting the occupants IEQ # Acoustic needs(CBE). This course will guide you through both design practices, guidelines, standards and references that can serve as a roadmap to how to address acoustic needs in closed spaces, open plan spaces, exposed structures, and classrooms.

Active Energy Efficiency Using Speed Control Online on-demand 300 1

Offered by:Energy University by Schneider Electric

Category:Energy and atmosphere

Many motors only have two settings: on and off. They operate at constant speed. If a motor turning at constant speed is driving ade vice or process that requires less output, adjustments are required to achieve the desired output level. This adjustment is oft en ac hieved by letting the motor run at full speed, while using downstream devices to block part of the output. This is like driving your car by having one foot fully depressing the accelerator pedal, and the other on the brake to constant ly control the speed. It sounds absurd, but this is still one of the most common control methods. An estimated 60% of motors are not speed cont rolled. The focus of this course is to explore the different ways we can control motor speed efficiently and with minimal phy

Building Pressurization with Airflow Control Instructor-led 400

Offered by:LEED-Specific

Category:Indoor environmental quality

Building Pressurization is a major part of having a healthy, efficient, better performing building.
Maintaining a net positive or neutral building pressure helps ensure that outdoor contaminants
and moisture do not enter the building through the building envelope and other unintended
locations. Additional benefits include staying compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act
which requires a certain threshold for door opening force, helping to ensure occupant#s thermal
comfort, controlling isolation zones and preventing wasted energy.
Measuring and controlling airflows is the best method for ensuring compliance with codes and
standards forminimum ventilation and controlling building pressure. Introducing more air into
the building than what is exhausted through the relief air and/or bathroom exhaust is the key to
maintaining a positive building. The main alternative, using a building pressure transducer, has
issues like wind effects on the outdoor reference, locating the indoor reference, pressure
interactions when multipleAHU#s, zones and transducers are involved.
Control diagrams are presented that show how to use airflow measurement to control airflows in
the building.
