Slides from the Four Part AC Performance Series

Here are the slides used during our four part series on AC System Performance.
We have also included a link to the recorded videos.

THE Total A/C System Performance Series

With sky-rocketing energy costs, restricted capital/replacement budgets, and the omnipresent concern for the bottom line, it is now more critical than ever to achieve the highest performance out of A/C and heat pump systems. You might think this is easier said than done, but that is not necessarily true! TruTech will get you there with a clear understanding of the concepts.

Based on our popular national live, national trainings and presentations and 3 years’ worth of results from thousands of contractor tests, TruTech Tools, LTD is proud to present a NEW four part series to help contractors, auditors and utility personnel learn how to:

  • measure system performance
  • increase system efficiency
  • reduce electrical consumption
  • shave peak loads
  • extend equipment service life
  • increase customer comfort and satisfaction
  • all while expanding sales, profitability and service contract opportunities

For a FREE copy of an A/C Applications Guide click HERE.

A NEW LIVE 4 PART SERIES WILL  BE SCHEDULED SOON. SLIDES AND RECORDINGS ARE AVAILABLE BELOW.

A/C System Performance Testing-  Part 1: The Big Picture

Understanding the problem and justifying the need for a System Performance approach. What are the market drivers? The A/C system has several sub-systems and each must be understood and working in harmony with the others to achieve optimum performance.

Target audience: contractors, auditors and utility personnel

RECORDED SESSION: COMING SOON.

SLIDES: Part 1 – The BIG picture AC Performance Series

 

A/C System Performance Testing-  Part 2:  AirFlow

Understanding proper AirFlow set up and measurement is at the core of AC System performance.

Target audience: contractors, auditors and utility personnel

RECORDED SESSION:  HERE
SLIDES: Part 2 -AirFlow- AC Performance Series

A/C System Performance Testing- Part 3: Refrigerant Charge
Beyond AirFlow the other key factor to optimizing A/C System Performance is understanding how to determine, measure and set the proper refrigerant charge in a system and measurement is at the core of AC System performance. Proper evacuation equipment and processes are critical to achieving the highest system efficiency.
Target audience: contractors, and utility personnel

RECORDED SESSION: HERE
SLIDES: Part 3 – Refrigerant Charge – AC Performance Series

A/C System Performance Testing- Part 4: Capacity Testing

The HVAC industry sells capacity (cooling tons), but how often is actually measured in the field? Using proper tools and techniques and a few calculations or appropriate software, technicians can now accurately measure cooling tons in minutes.
Target audience: contractors, auditors and utility personnel

Carbon Monoxide Alarms Save Lives

Carbon Monoxide Alarms Save Lives.

If you are involved in home energy auditing, building science, weatherization or HVAC, you should be installing and carrying  low level CO alarms.

Every home you test and tighten is a liability. Testing and retesting my not minimize your liability to the levels that you and your insurance company desire and your customers expect. Because homes are dynamic they need to be treated as so. Even the best contractors cannot predict every characteristic that a home will have or that will change after air sealing, insulating, installing new HVAC equipment, HVAC servicing, changing windows or door or siding. That is the primary reason a low level CO detector should be installed on every job your company is involved with.

What is Carbon Monoxide?

  • Carbon Monoxide is rightful called the silent killer.
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) is odorless, colorless, tasteless and moves with the air (does not stratify).
  • Only specially designed gas sensors effectively detect the presence of CO.
  • CO poison accumulates in the body so low level exposure over longer periods can be just as harmful as a high level exposure over a shorter period.

Why an “off the shelf” detector is not enough.

US and Canadian alarm standards (UL 2034 and CSA6.19) call for:

  • No displays under 30+ PPM (parts per million)
  • No alarms at 70+ PPM for 60 to 240 minutes (1 to 4 hours)
  • No alarms at 150+ PPM for 10 to 50 minutes
  • No alarms at 400+ PPM for 4 to 15 minutes

YET…
CO becomes (dangerous) toxic for healthy individuals at concentrations more than 50 ppm with continuous exposure over an eight hour period according to the US Occupational Safety and Healthy Administration (OSHA). Reactions to exposure to 70 to 100 ppm CO over a few hours include flu-like symptoms such as headaches, irritated eyes and a runny nose. Exposure to 150 to 300 ppm CO may produce dizziness, sleepiness and nausea. Exposure to more than 400 ppm CO may result in unconsciousness, brain damage and death.

Low level CO detectors are designed to protect you and your customers by alarming far below the UL listing standard.  They are an easy up-sell for a tighter home.
