Building owners and tenants are concerned that the environmental performance of buildings must be optimal while the operating cost should be minimal. These goals can only be accomplished when a building’s HVAC and hydronic systems are properly balanced. Three major steps used to achieve the proper operation of the HVAC and hydronic systems and a desirable climate are testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB).
The review will cover engineering principles, charts, diagrams, problem solving and techniques involved with TAB work. In addition to practical TAB experience, Seminar attendees must have a minimum working capability in mathematics, including geometry and second-year high school algebra.
*Attendees should be aware that this is a review Seminar and attending the Seminar alone is insufficient for successful completion of the TAB Certified Professional exams. The material presented, along with time allocated, is only meant to provide an overview of the engineering principles and field practices required of project-management level personnel.
