Day One - Discussion Topics
HVAC system problems can be divided into three major categories - Air Distribution, Electrical or Mechanical. The part that causes most service headaches is the electrical portion and most of that can be traced back to control problems. So day one of this Electrical Controls & Air Distribution seminar concentrates on overcoming the most common service problems encountered in HVAC systems by teaching students to understand, troubleshoot and test HVAC electrical controls.

Day Two - Discussion Topics
Many common problems found in HVAC systems are relatively easy to correct, but are often overlooked. These problems are not electrically related at all even though many times we can get tricked into thinking they are. Yet a non-electrical problem can be as frustrating to find and fix as an electrical one, and may be even more discomforting to the people who have to live with it. So in day two of this Electrical Controls & Air Distribution training program we’ll help you eliminate the complaints of "too hot", "too cold", "not enough air" or "I feel a draft", by concentrating on the most often overlooked and ignored problems in HVAC systems – the "V" in "HVAC" – or ventilation, air distribution and air balancing!
