Intro to Residential HVAC Design in 3D Using ACCA Manuals J, S, & D (Webinar)

May 14, 2024

This class will be an introduction to ACCA Manuals J, S and D (load calculations, equipment sizing and duct design) using a new 3D HVAC design software. Rather than drawing the house in a CAD software, this software “builds” the house out of scalable 3D boxes. The benefit of 3D design is that it helps make sure that the system being designed will actually fit in the house and gives a better indication of duct length, surface area, bends, and fittings. Attendees should have a good working knowledge of HVAC terminology and concepts.

*This class is recommended before taking 3D Residential HVAC Design (No CAD Required) – Parts 1 & 2.

Instructor: Russ King – licensed Mechanical Engineer with over 30 years of experience practicing and teaching in the areas of Residential HVAC design, diagnostics, and consulting, as well as energy codes and building science.

Course Objectives:
• Understand the basics of building geometry.
• Understand the basics of heating and cooling load calculations.
• Understand the basics of heating and cooling equipment selection.
• Understand the basics of duct layout and sizing.
• Understand the importance of good airflow on cooling equipment capacity and efficiency.
• Understand the importance of proper register/grille location, sizing, and type.
