At the Heatload Workshop in April, Kenny Ripberger demonstrates the use of computerized heatload programs for contractors and a City official.

Tues.,  Feb. 7, 2017  —  In order to provide a way for HVAC contractors to learn skills using heatload software and to improve sizing calculations, SELACACI has been hosting monthly gatherings on this subject.

Tentatively scheduled for Delgado Community College’s Jefferson Campus, 5200 Blair Dr., Metairie (off Airline Hwy. west of Transcontinental), Building B, Room 2.

Personalized orientation, skill-development, and problem-solving involving Computerized Heatload Analysis.  This is a regular event held on the First Tuesday of every month.  Free help & advice — Take advantage of this while it’s available!

The next Heatload Workshop will be on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 5 p.m.

Bryan Rainey of Family Air, Ray Langlois of Oschner, Mike Murphy of Artisan Associates & Willie Williams of GBOB confer at the Heatload Workshop in June.

If you’re new to computerized heatload analysis, the workshop will offer orientation.  If you want to develop your skills further, you’ll be in good company.

Each month, these networking sessions have grown more popular.  Given the competitive nature of the industry and the  investment of time necessary for contractors to properly go through all the steps of Manual J (A/C Sizing) & D (Duct Sizing) & S (Equipment Selection), it’s critical for technicians to understand the various steps in the process and to know to what degree shortcuts may or may not be acceptable — to avoid problems with the actual installation.

This effort is not meant to take the place of heatload software training courses, but rather to provide an ongoing forum for the exchange of information, promoting maximum productivity.  Come & Bring Your Hard Questions!

There is no charge for these informal meetings; they are not a “class” per se (but you might learn as much as in a class).  To receive monthly email confirmations of SELACACI’s Heatload Workshops, join SELACACI’s listserv if you’re not already on it.

Thanks!

SELACACI’s Board invites your input & ideas as it develops its programs for 2017.
