Building Science + HVAC Training & Certification
We’ve been working in the energy efficiency field since 2002. We’re not just teaching from a textbook, we’re educating from experience on the front lines of the industry. Our specialty is providing students with training on the aspects of home and HVAC system performance that most product manufacturers and distributors don’t address. There’s not really a part or piece that ties directly to the stuff we teach. We focus on how the building systems work as a whole.
While our trainings all have separate titles, we bring a healthy dose of general building science into each class. A solid understanding of how an HVAC system interacts with and affects the building as a whole is critical to your success as an HVAC or home performance contractor. Looking beyond the HVAC system not only delivers more value to your client, but also helps your bottom-line.
Class Delivery Options – In Person or Online!
We provide in-person trainings at your location, whether you’re in our town or across the globe. We also offer online training programs that provide you with all of the same content, viewable from any location in the world. Our advanced learning management system allows students to interact with each other and with the online trainer.
We have the ability to customize a training to fit your specific needs. So, don’t be afraid to ask. We also travel nationally to deliver these trainings. So, don’t let geography stop you from reaching out to us.
Right-sized systems dehumidify better, cost less to install (higher margins), and cost less to operate. Getting it right consistently can mean thousands of dollars to your bottom line. These classes focus on how to generate accurate loads using Wrightsoft HVAC design software.
Does the air in your HVAC systems get to where it’s needed most? After selecting your equipment and deciding where you’ll place it, the next step is making sure the ducts are sized properly. This class focuses on how to perform this step utilizing Wrightsoft HVAC design software.
