The guidelines in this course are offered to assist designers with little or no experience in plant HVAC system design. The material presented is a starting point. The material is based on the experience of previous designers and accepted industry codes and standards. In many cases, especially minimum ventilation requirements, the material presented is subject to change due to periodic revisions of codes and standards. The information or materials presented in these guidelines are not intended to circumvent the requirements of applicable codes or standards. The HVAC system designer is ultimately responsible for verifying compliance with the requirements of the latest codes and standards. Where codes and standards differ from these guidelines, the more stringent requirement should be applied in the design.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
