2015 HVAC Excellence Educators and Trainers Conference

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

CEU Value 0.2

Carbon Monoxide and Combustion Safety Awareness

Bob Dwyer, CSME, Director of Education, Carbon Monoxide Safety Association (COSA)

Legacy South 2

In this session learn; how CO is produced, how much is too much, combustion efficiency,

recognizing CO symptoms, what are normal levels, and much more. Thorough carbon monoxide

safety education helps prepare the technician for real world hazards. It will also save their life

or the life of another if the technician is taught to test and not be caught measureless.

10 Keys to Attracting Qualified Students to Your Program

Dr. Timothy Muckey, HVACR Program Director, El Camino College

Legacy South 1

This session will address some how to attract qualified students to your program. The 10 keys:

student hierarchy of needs, shared vision, engagement, brainpower relationships, industry

partnerships, certificates and degrees, marketplace advantage, well-paid jobs, integration of

technology, lifelong learning.

10:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

CEU Value 0.2

Hands-on Method to Teach the Operation and Troubleshooting Thermostatic

Expansion Valves

Eugene Silberstein, BEAP, CMHE, Co-Author of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Technology

Randy Petit, CMHE, Director of Program Development, HVAC Excellence

Legacy North 2

This hands-on demonstration will cover techniques that simplify an understanding of the theory,

operation, and troubleshooting of Thermostatic Expansion Valves. When students can control

the pressures and temperatures they can see the effects of valve operation and brings it all

together which enhances their ability to understand and troubleshoot TXV's efficiently.

Information for constructing this simple device used for the hands on demonstration will be

provided. The Thermostatic Expansion Valves used in this session are provided by Sporlan.

Envelope Testing

Frank Spevak, Marketing and Sales Manager, The Energy Conservatory

Legacy South 2

This session will discuss the latest building code requirements for testing the building envelope

for both new construction and retrofit. We will cover how to perform a building envelope test

and what the numbers mean.

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.
