York Sun Premier – Efficient, Flexible, and IAQ responsible 25-80 ton Packaged Rooftop Unitand Price Optimized 15-27.5 ton model with a flexible drop-in competitive replacement footprint

The Premier course covers a number of customer needs for Efficiency, Flexibility, and Indoor Air Quality that are often encountered when designing a system with packaged rooftop units.  During the course we will detail efficiency and how the regulations / standards are changing within the market.  The course will cover a number of limitations inherent in packaged rooftop units, such as supply and return airflow patterns, and how the Premier line can help to bridge those gaps.  In today’s times Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become more prominent in HVAC designs.  Items such as UV lights, and Outside Airflow Measurement will be discussed in connection with the Premier line.

York Sun Select - Entry platform in the 27.5-50 ton range providing a broad array of features for the for first-cost sensitive application

York Sun Select - Entry platform in the 27.5-50 ton range providing a broad array of features for the for first-cost sensitive application

This course will cover how the Select product line fits perfectly in the multiple product strategy from 25-50 tons.  We will discuss how the Select product is economical, has class leading performance, and is made with replacement on existing competitor’s curbs in mind.  We will also not forget to focus on the design that gets us to higher IEERs than the comparable competitive models, distinguished options and accessories, controls, and reliability.

Sound: An Introduction to the Acoustics of HVAC Equipment – 2 PDH credits

Sound: An Introduction to the Acoustics of HVAC Equipment – 2 PDH credits

For most of us, the noise from HVAC units is mysterious and, frankly, “squishy”. What is it, really? Why does it seem so complicated? How can we understand it more clearly and actually do something about it? This class provides an introduction to the acoustics of HVAC equipment. In particular, it focuses on sound from ducted systems, direct expansion (DX) packaged units, and rooftop applications. We start at ground level, addressing just what is sound and how is it measured. We touch on how humans hear sound, and how that affects the metrics used to describe HVAC sound. We work through the particulars of characterizing HVAC sound, how it is measured, and how it is reported according to standards. Finally, we take a brief look at the sources of indoor and outdoor noise from HVAC and how to address them effectively. When you complete the class, you will have a better understanding of where HVAC sound comes from, what all the strange numbers mean, and how it can be mitigated. You will be able to communicate clearly with your clients and their engineers about your products’ HVAC sound and about addressing sensitive installations.

Regulatory: The Transition to Low GWP (Flammable) Refrigerants in the Unitary Market – 1 PDH credit

Regulatory: The Transition to Low GWP (Flammable) Refrigerants in the Unitary Market – 1 PDH credit

Global forces are driving all industries to quickly adapt to the ever increasing trends to become more environmentally friendly.  Recent passage of federal hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) refrigerant legislation and a patchwork of states moving on their own to regulate HFC’s are forcing the HVCA industry to adapt quickly.  For the Unitary sector (residential and commercial splits, packaged units and rooftop units), refrigerant transition has been a significant event that has both direct and indirect impacts.  Past refrigerant transitions in the Unitary sector, while disruptive to execute, have been fairly straightforward from a regulatory standpoint whereby industry transitioned from a single, non-flammable fluid (R-22) to another single, non-flammable fluid (R-410A) based on ozone depletion potential (ODP) across the entire North American continent.  This next transition which could begin to occur in the United States within the next few years won’t likely be so straightforward; multiple, mildly flammable, low GWP refrigerants are likely to enter the market as soon as building codes allow.  The webinar will explain the drivers behind the next transition; a few of the leading low GWP refrigerant candidates and the possible timing and consequences that could occur.

Regulatory: Reducing HVAC GHG Emissions: Electrification & Decarbonization – 1 PDH credit

Regulatory: Reducing HVAC GHG Emissions: Electrification & Decarbonization – 1 PDH credit

Recent federal and state hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant legislation requires HVAC industry change to meet the growing call for environmental protection. This transition will have significant direct and indirect impacts on the Unitary sector (residential/commercial splits, packaged/rooftop units). Previous Unitary sector refrigerant transitions, like the move from R-22 to R-410A, were disruptive in execution but clear-cut from a regulatory standpoint. The next transition, likely to occur within a few years, will not be as straightforward. Multiple, mildly flammable, low-GWP refrigerants will be available as soon as building codes allow. This webinar shares the drivers behind the next transition, leading low-GWP refrigerant candidates, timing and possible consequences.

HVAC System’s Impact on a Building’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – 1 PDH credit

HVAC System’s Impact on a Building’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – 1 PDH credit

HVAC systems have a significant impact on a building’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Properly selecting and maintaining the HVAC system helps avoid sick buildings and now the spread of COVID-19. ASHARE standards like 62.1 & 170, guide the industry through the many aspects that impact IAQ. Even though daycares, veterinarian offices, theaters, surgical suites and warehouses all require different ventilation & IAQ requirements, the basic premise stays the same: Deliver High Quality Air to the space. Premier, Select and Core package units with their associated option are the right solutions for our customers’ IAQ needs.
