BOMI International, a nonprofit providing education for property, facilities and building systems management, released its new high-performance HVAC optimization learning program, covering heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.
High-Performance Sustainable Buildings: HVAC Optimization consists of five scenario-based online modules focused on the relationship among the facilities manager, building tenants, and systems maintenance personnel. BOMI International’s new program was developed using the latest instructional design techniques, using animated, real-life scenarios to provide learners with immediately applicable learning opportunities.
The course covers a variety of topics advocating for the most efficient operation of HVAC systems year-round while taking into consideration people, profits, and the Earth. Concepts include: best practices for operations assessments, demand response strategies, the use of analytics tools, and procedures for engaging third-party support. Real life examples are given to demonstrate the importance of monitoring ventilation rates and economizer functionality, as well as employing a variety of system resets to save energy, lower costs, and increase occupant comfort.
