Manual-J Training (Now Offered Online, Too!)
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 no longer possible to use rule‐of‐thumb HVAC sizing methods and achieve accurate results. This class will provide you a better understanding of proper system sizing and the implications of doing things the “wrong” way. Special attention will be focused on how to properly select equipment based on the results of your Manual‐J load calculation, emphasizing proper sizing of heat pumps and air conditioners to maximize dehumidification and avoid system oversizing. Other topics covered will include: mechanical ventilation, envelope leakage, zoning, and AED excursions. You’ll leave this class familiar with Wrightsoft software, enabling you to easily perform Manual-J load calculations for yourself or your clients.
We also cover Manual-S, which covers the proper methods of selecting equipment to match the load produced by the Manual-J. By properly selecting equipment, one can avoid oversizing and increase the overall performance of the system.
