Manual-J & D - Asheville, NC

Event date: 
Monday, July 9, 2012 (All day)


Manual-J is the first step of the HVAC design process. This process ensures that the designer understands the true energy needs of a building, so that a properly sized system can be selected. Due to the presence of new building materials, advanced insulation systems, solar design strategies, and efficient ventilation systems, it's impossible to use rule-of-thumb sizing methods and achieve accurate results.

After completing a Manual-J and selecting your equipment, the next step in the design process is a Manual-D, the duct design. We'll pick up where the Manual-J class left off, continuing the design process and utilizing the Wrightsoft design software to assist us with the ductwork. You'll design and model a few different duct systems during this extra day of training, leaving you feeling well prepared to do it on your own designs or for your clients.

Whether you're an HVAC contractor, an energy auditor, or a HERS rater, this class will provide you a better understanding of proper system sizing and the implications of doing things the "wrong" way.

You'll leave this class familiar with Wrightsoft software, enabling you to easily perform load calculations for yourself or your clients. Students must bring their own laptop, as you'll be using a demo copy of Wrightsoft software to do in-class and homework problems.

TEXT Books (Recommended): Manual-J 8th Edition, full edition.
