Join us for an opportunity to gain hands-on experience using F280-12 software and right-sizing HVAC equipment.

This full day session includes a review of the practical application of heat pump load calculations using F280-12 software and a site visit to discuss the pre-changeout processes and data collection for reviewing existing HVAC equipment performance.

The practical application of F280 software in the classroom will include:

  • Background on F280-12 and importance of right-sizing HVAC equipment.
  • Software options for HVAC contractors completing F280-12 load calculations.
  • Practical application of F280-12 on existing home and new home projects.

The site visit will review a local existing home project, and will include:

  • Visual evaluation of home to gather performance attributes of building envelope and HVAC equipment.
  • Blower door testing to determine air leakage.
  • Pre-changeout performance testing of gas furnace including static pressure testing and CFM measurement using True Flow Grid.

This training is geared towards those with an understanding of heat loss / heat gain calculations looking to gain hands-on experience using F280-12 software and right-sizing equipment.

This session has been pre-approved for 7 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Points through BC Housing.
