122 HVACR Systems: Load Calculations
(18 hours/60 days) Advanced
Residential load calculations is a method to determine the heating and cooling BTU/H loads of structures prior to installing HVACR systems to meet those loads.
You will need the required text: Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manual J, 8th Abridged Edition (MJ8-AE). This manual provides thorough instructions for estimating heat loss and heat gain for residential structures and helps to simplify complicated procedures that are often used on a variety of home applications. 122 Systems provides instruction for completing load calculations by hand, which is necessary prior to attempting any computerized load program. We focus on following the concepts of MJ8-AE while further simplifying the methodology emphasized in the manual. Students will utilize a “simple” residential structure and follow the steps to calculate both heat loss and heat gain for its location and outdoor design temperatures. This course also covers residential equipment selection focused on the heating and cooling equipment Btu/h loads of a structure.
