Why Teaching Air Flow Diagnostic Techniques is Vital?

Presented by:   Darrin Kramer   

Wednesday, March 23 from 7:00 AM to 8:30 AM, Sonoma B

This course highlights why air flow measurement techniques are vital when installing and servicing equipment, what the value of using air flow measurement in classroom training to properly diagnose HVAC systems is, and helps instructors to evaluate their current program for teaching airflow diagnostic. Teaching airflow measurement is vital to properly diagnosing an HVAC system. Many technicians simply do not have the training or the technical equipment to perform their job. This results in new and existing HVAC systems not operating correctly, often leading technicians to incorrectly service the equipment. Equipment longevity and efficiency are greatly reduced. This training helps instructors re-evaluate instructional air flow training for students. This instructional course answers the following questions and gives instructors a road map to modify or add teaching techniques to their current curriculum. * Who should have the skills to measure airflow? * How much training should I give students? * What are employers asking from technical schools? * What is the importance of measuring airflow? * When should air flow be measured? * How does air flow affect a system? * What types of air flow measurement equipment should students learn to use? * Does your technical program teach air flow? * If so, what type of measurement devices do students get trained to use? * How much time is allotted for air flow training? * Does your teaching include over charging a system with low air flow for students to diagnose? * How do you teach, delivering and measuring correct CFM into a room, based on Manual J load calculation? * How do you teach air flow entering verses total airflow existing the supply side? * How do you know the system in moving enough CFM across the indoor coil? Mr. Kramer will provide examples including an example of a sick patient. What does a medical doctor consider? Comparison: How does an HVAC doctor (technician) begin his diagnosis? Where does he start? What steps should he go through to properly diagnose a system? Why does a technician think he needs to immediately connect gauges? * Personal medical history? * Family medical history? * Medicine you are currently taking * Where is your pain? * Electrical (efficiency) * Air flow (duct system design issues) * Mechanical (charging) superheat, sub cool How do these three work together on system performance? Diagnostic? Come prepared to learn in this must attend session.
