2015 HVAC Excellence Educators and Trainers Conference
10:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.
CEU Value 0.2
HVAC and the Cloud—The Sky Has No Limit
Tim Burke, Strategic Marketing Manager, White-Rodgers
Legacy South 2
Wi-Fi thermostats began a paradigm shift in the HVAC industry. Now manufacturers are
coupling Wi-Fi to the cloud in their equipment to create all new HVAC business models for
residential applications. Learn how smart systems are changing the way the industry installs
and services HVAC equipment. Attendees will learn the importance of teaching cloud based
technologies as a key to the success of new HVAC technicians entering our market.
VRF & Variable Refrigerant Temperature
Thomasena Philen, Education Partnership Administrator, Daikin AC
Legacy South 3
Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) is the wave of the future. How can the industry improve on
this leading edge technology? Variable Refrigerant Temperature (VRT) combined with VRF.
This session will cover the basics of VRF & inverter technology and how it is typically applied
and then expand on how variable refrigerant temperature can improve on overall system
efficiency. VRT is a commercial cooling & heating application. Instructors teaching VRT
technology in the classroom will be building upon a solid foundation of the refrigeration cycle
and how it looks on a P&E chart as well as applying the concepts to system design.
The Ins and Outs of Humidity
Jamie Kitchen, Training Manager, Danfoss
Legacy South 1
This session will cover; the relationship between sensible/latent temperatures and the
conditions most challenging for humidity control, moisture and the conditioned space including
the effects of excess and very low moisture levels, how coil temperature and air flow affect
sensible and latent heat removal, regional considerations concerning humidity control including
ASRAE recommendations, system design priorities for effective control of humidity, how
manufacturers are approaching humidity control with considerations towards increased out-door
air requirements, the effects of variable air and refrigerant volume control and how these are
being used to match specific air treatment requirements. Attendees will gain both practical and
theoretical knowledge which can be incorporated directly into their training on basic,
intermediate and advanced psychometrics and air treatment, tools used for air measurement,
system design considerations, air measurement fundamentals and troubleshooting with an eye
towards proper moisture control.
The Right Tools for HVACR
Tony Gonzalez, Trainer, Fieldpiece Instruments
Forum East 4
Have you ever wished a manufacturer would ask you to help be a fundamental part of guiding
the future of HVACR test tool instrumentation? Well here is your chance as Fieldpiece will be
conducting a forum style session where attendees will be a fundamental part of guiding the
future of HVACR test tool instrumentation, to provide feedback about the current state of test
tools in major testing categories for HVACR students and professionals. This session will also
cover current test, testing methods and how to improve on them with updated
technology and procedures. Attendees are encouraged to share limitations
they face with current test tools and provide ideas on how to improve them.
