The Devil is in the Details: Common Pitfalls Specifying Commercial Boilers & Water Heaters
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Overlooking the smallest detail in the beginning can cause huge issues later on. Join us in this one-hour course as we cover common pitfalls designers face when specifying commercial boilers and water heaters. We will review different types of installation and application errors that can cause major safety concerns.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Review combustion fundamentals and differentiate between condensing and non-condensing water heater systems
  2. Discuss how misapplication of water heaters and boilers can cause major concerns and dangerous environments for contractors and occupants
  3. Identify the end results of poor venting, including increased liability, destroyed boiler components, and potential risks to occupant safety
  4. Recall minimum combustible clearance and minimum service clearance guidelines and articulate the importance of proper service clearance for operation and safety
  5. Judge real world applications for proper venting, clearance, piping, and other processes to ensure best practices and guidelines have been followed

A Clean Slate: Hygienic Public Restroom Design with WELL v.2
Sponsored By World Dryer
Presented By Alan Squires
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Now more than ever, public restrooms must be clean and comfortable for all users. However, exactly what that looks like has been up for debate. Join us in this one-hour course as we make the case for multi-stall public restrooms that address users’ concerns of privacy and hygiene through partitions, fixtures, hand dryers, and beyond.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify emerging trends in public restroom design and how multi-stall restrooms address users’ concerns of privacy and hygiene
  2. Evaluate partition materials and types to ensure public restroom stalls are designed to be safe, sustainable, and accessible for all users
  3. Illustrate how touchless restroom fixtures promote sanitation and water efficiency
  4. Demonstrate how warm air hand dryers equipped with HEPA filters can encourage proper hand hygiene and sustainability

Maintaining Temperature & Humidity in Critical Zones
Presented By Michael Walters
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

The battle to maintain temperature and humidity within critical zones has given HVAC engineers headaches for years—but not anymore!

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recall the three main zone variables—temperature, humidity, and particulates—and discuss their impact on a building’s indoor air quality and occupant health
  2. Explain how implementing a reheat design improves upon the standard heating and cooling scenario to provide optimal humidity levels
  3. Define neutral air and discuss its role in providing ideal zone conditions with optimal temperature and humidity levels
  4. Illustrate how to incorporate emerging technologies into new and existing projects in order to control temperature and humidity
