Tips and Tutorials
There is a gap between ‘what time is it?’ and ‘how do you build a watch?’ The goal of the training videos is to explore that gap.
You don’t need to know how to build a fan, a heat pump, or an acoustic lab, but you would what to pay attention to the signs when there could be an opportunity or a problem.
If you open up the fan program or catalog, there are a lot of models to choose from. Too many.
The purpose of this video is to help you understand that there are only a few decisions that are required.
If you are able to read a fan curve, by the end of this video you’ll be able to improve your selection criteria. Then it’s 1-2-3.
What wheel? What box? Where’s the motor go?
Option 1 – I need a silencer, 60x30x72 and can allow 0.2” of static. Whatcha got?
Option 2 – I’m putting a new rooftop on a building. Do I need a silencer?
You have the ability to answer your own questions, or at least understand what the silencer people do when they cook up an answer to your application. Learn it all here, and DIY if you like.
At least you can learn enough to call BS when you’re getting a line of nonsense.
You can’t use heat pumps in Northern Climate! This video addresses that statement, and introduces a heat pump that can withstand a Wisconsin or Michigan winter.
How can it produce enough heat in cold climates? Isn’t gas cheaper than electricity? Is it easy to install? What about a retrofit? Would it work for apartments? How much does it cost?
All these questions, and more, as we evaluate the eventual replacement of the furnace.
This video features a little bit about ‘why displacement’, particularly when considering tiny infectious particles suspended and propagated in our buildings.
Displacement also requires a different set of calculations, but we show you how to make use of Price’s software to make quick conversions from mixing to DV spaces.
If the engineer can inspect the merit of displacement on the front end of a project and compare to mixing, it often makes a case for itself.
It’s not that hard, and this video shows you how.
