Ce que vous apprendrez
Grâce à ce cours en ligne, les participants sont initiés aux principes de base de la ventilation résidentielle. Nous commençons par définir les concepts connus sous le nom de “Maison en tant que système” ; la circulation de l’air, de la chaleur et de l’eau et leur impact sur la ventilation naturelle (c’est-à-dire les fuites d’air). Nous décrirons ensuite la théorie de la circulation mécanique de l’air, y compris la pression de l’air, la résistance des conduits et la puissance des ventilateurs. Un examen de l’impact sur les appareils de combustion, les niveaux d’humidité et la qualité de l’air intérieur est également fourni.
Il y a beaucoup d’éléments visuels et des quiz périodiques pour renforcer les objectifs d’apprentissage!
Major Takeaways
Understand the basic building science principals that are the foundation for ventilation design and commissioning.

Residential Ventilation using CSA F326
Pre-requisite for HRV/ERV Installation & Balancing Fundamentals
March 21-23, 2022
8:30am – 4:30pm
Cost of course before discount – $1,110 + HST
What you will learn
Participants will use extensive worksheets in conjunction with detailed procedures to select equipment, size ducts and specify installation and control details necessary to design ventilation systems that satisfy Building Code requirements throughout Canada based on the National CSA F326 Standard. CSA F326 allows for much greater flexibility and has no scope restrictions compared to local building codes.
Learning Objectives
  • Calculate the required ventilation and exhaust requirements for residential ventilation systems
  • Assess the risk from depressurization and size make-up air systems to suit
  • Describe the distribution requirements
  • Select ventilation equipment to meet the requirements of CSA F326
  • Size ducting according to good engineering practice without the limitations of Building Code-based tables
  • Describe the controls required under CSA F326
  • Calculate delivered and mixed air temperatures to ensure occupant comfort
 
Who would benefit from this course?
HVAC Designers, HVAC Installers, Builders, Architectural Designers, Energy Advisors, Building Inspectors, Plans Examiners
Course Format
Prior to attending this course, attendees are required to register for and successfully complete an online module, “Online Basic Principles of Residential Ventilation”
 
Major Takeaways
  • Certification as an F326 designer, which is recognized by many jurisdictions
  • Ability to do designs for circumstances that are outside the scope of the building codes such as houses with more than 5 bedrooms
  • Since CSA F326 is a performance-based standard the participant will get a much better understanding of the theory of ventilation and how it impacts the rest of the house and its occupants

Residential Ventilation using Section 9.32 of the Building Code
Formerly the Residential Mechanical Ventilation Installers Course
Pre-requisite for HRV/ERV Installation & Balancing Fundamentals
March 14-15, 2022
8:30am – 4:30pm
Cost of course before discount – $865 + HST
What you will learn
Participants will use simple worksheets in conjunction with detailed design procedures to quickly select equipment, size ducts and specify installation and control details necessary to design ventilation systems. All content complies with Section 9.32 of the NBC. Participants will also clearly understand when the circumstances fall outside the scope of 9.32, which will require the use of a more comprehensive standard such as CSA F326.
Learning Objectives
  • Describe the scope and limitations of designing a ventilation system under 9.32 of the NBC
  • List which rooms require fresh air and exhaust inlets
  • Determine the required ventilation and exhaust capacity
  • Describe the distribution requirements
  • Identify when make-up air systems are required
  • Select ventilation equipment to meet the requirements of the NBC
  • Size ducting according to the NBC and understand when ducts have to be sized using standards outside of the NBC
  • Describe the controls required under the NBC

HRV/ERV Installation & Balancing Fundamentals
March 18, 2022
8:30am – 4:30pm
Cost of course before discount – $615 + HST
What you will learn
Participants will receive the skills and knowledge to balance the airflows of Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators (HRV/ERVs). They will also have an overview of the installation and measurement requirements. An HRAI checklist for installation and servicing of HRVs and ventilation systems will be made available, for use when on the job.
After an instructor-led demonstration, participants will be divided into two groups to complete a hands-on assessment of balancing and a brief exam on installation requirements and the theory and application of air flow measurement. Participants are encouraged to bring their own measuring equipment and use it in a comfortable learning environment.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Describe the basic requirements for locating equipment including grills
  • Explain how to install the condensate line for an HRV/ERV
  • Use commonly available equipment for measure air velocity and/or flow
  • Demonstrate the basic methods for balancing an HRV/ERV
  • Understand when it may be necessary to consult with the designer on issues discovered on site
  • List various ways to improve the airflow in an existing duct system
  • Describe the ways that airflow can be adjusted
  • Interpret a ventilation design to determine the airflow required from the HRV/ERV
 
 
Deadline to Register:
March 11, 2022 – NOON
 
Prerequisite
Details vary depending on the local code, so participants are required to attend HRAI’s Residential Ventilation using Section 9.32 of the Building Code OR Residential Ventilation using CSA F326 course before being able to attend the HRV/ERV Installation & Balancing Fundamentals course.
 
Major Takeaways
  • Certification as an HRV/ERV Balancer, which is recognized by many jurisdictions 
  • The ability to use a variety of flow measuring devices to measure and balance air flow
  • A good understanding of installation practices

Residential Heat Loss & Heat Gain Calculations
March 28-31, 2022
8:30am – 4:30pm
Cost of course before discount – $1,240 + HST
What you will learn
Based on the CSA Standard F280-12, students get a firsthand introduction of the basic principles of building science and heat loss/gain. Through various in-class exercises, the student will learn how to determine the thermal resistance (R- value) of various building assemblies, such as walls and ceilings. Accurately, calculate room by room heat loss and gain while considering the influences of occupancy, exposure, ventilation, air leakage across the building envelope and more.
 
 
Major Takeaway
Get recognized by municipal building officials and plans examiners for having the technical competency needed to perform residential load calculations and size heating and cooling appliances accordingly.
Who would benefit from this course?
HVAC technicians, designers
