A Comparative Analysis of Residential Heating Systems Online on-demand 200 1.0

Offered by: Propane Education & Research Council

Category: Energy and atmosphere

Architects, builders, contractors and homeowners today face a myriad of options for home heating systems. Traditional furnaces andb oilers, high efficiency models, heat pumps (both air-source andground-source), and even dual-fuel systems are all options. Sort ing o ut the best choice for a home, or location, requires taking a close look at system costs, efficiency levels, energy rates, c omfort l evels and the severity of the climate and any applicable incentives including tax credits. This learning unit is the resu lt of a research study performed to identify the best options for residential heating across all U.S. climate zones, based on the aforemen tioned variables. This on-demand, online course is self-paced and features a pre-recorded narrative that se rves as the instructor. This allows learners to read along with the narrator and listen to the information; similar to typical livei nstructio n. After completing the course a 10-question quiz must be completed. At least 8 of 10 questions must be answered correctly to earn credit for the learning unit. Start-to-finish this course should take between 75 and 85 minutes to complete. Learners may wi sh t o spend additional time to review concepts prior to completing the quiz. A certificate of completion can be printed for self-rep o rting and record-keeping needs.

ACOUSTIC DESIGN OF GREEN BUILDINGS FOR COMMUNICATIONS, PRIVACY, AND PRODUCTIVITY Online on-demand 200 1.0

Offered by: Armstrong World Industries, Inc.

Category: Indoor environmental quality

This course provides an overview of acoustics and green building and demonstrates how important acoustic comfort is to occupants. Buildings are designed, constructed, and operated primarily for the purpose of providing healthy and productive spaces for "People" to work and live. "Acoustic Comfort" means providing an acoustic environment that is conducive to speech intelligibility, speech privacy, low distractions and annoyance, and concentration where appropriate. Current approaches to building design and construction are not meeting the occupants IEQ # Acoustic needs(CBE). This course will guide you through both design practices, guidelines, standards and references that can serve as a roadmap to how to address acoustic needs in closed spaces, open plan spaces, exposed structures, and classrooms.

Active Energy Efficiency Using Speed Control Online on-demand 300 1.0

Offered by: Energy University by Schneider Electric

Category: Energy and atmosphere

Many motors only have two settings: on and off. They operate at constant speed. If a motor turning at constant speed is driving ade vice or process that requires less output, adjustments are required to achieve the desired output level. This adjustment is oft en ac hieved by letting the motor run at full speed, while using downstream devices to block part of the output. This is like driving your car by having one foot fully depressing the accelerator pedal, and the other on the brake to constant ly control the speed. It sounds absurd, but this is still one of the most common control methods. An estimated 60% of motors are not speed cont rolled. The focus of this course is to explore the different ways we can control motor speed efficiently and with minimal phy
