Date : 11/08/2021 - 30/10/2021 (81-day Program) Time & Duration : 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm


Kerala State Productivity Council with six decades of training and consulting experience in Productivity and Energy Management is now announces 3 months online Certificate Course on “HVAC Systems - Basic Design Principles, Theory of Operation and Best Operating Practices” to provide learning opportunity to desirous learners. Build your competencies and get certified.

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems account for 39 percent of the energy consumed in commercial buildings. HVAC regulates the inside temperature of the building and, in some systems, the air quality as well .The unique attributes of each facility impact the overall design, size, and positioning of an HVAC system. If designed well, these systems can help manufacturing plants focus on production and reduce energy costs.

Depending on where the facility is situated, the type of emissions it produces, the size of the building, and the air quality within each section, the requirements of a design will differ. For example, if the building struggles with humidity, manufacturers may install air-conditioning units that rely on latent cooling methods instead of sensible cooling methods.

Factors to be considered while Designing an Efficient HVAC System

1.   Take into account the integrity and insulation of any exterior walls that may negatively impact heat exchange systems. The location of each component is crucial for energy efficiency.

2.   Design your HVAC system as early as possible during the construction or re-fitting of a facility. Having the ability to insulate and modify the building can help HVAC units work more efficiently.

3.   Know what energy loads are specific to your plant and calculate the unit’s size based on those figures. Oversized systems in facilities that only require small loads can waste energy and cost more money than necessary.

4.   If possible, design the system to take advantage of any off-peak rates offered by utility companies or over-night cooling systems that help curb energy consumption during the day.
