MOUNT PROSPECT, ILL. -- HVAC Excellence and Ferris State University recently agreed to work together to address a gap in “green mechanical” education.
The partnership resulted in the development of a new training manual, “Green Mechanical Systems - Awareness of Fundamental and Emerging Green Technologies.” The manual, printed by ESCO Press, is designed to provide a basic understanding of green concepts, terminologies, systems, and the latest in green mechanical technology. Ferris State University and HVAC Excellence are developing additional technical training manuals covering an array of green mechanical issues.
The first of the “Going Green Book Series,” “Combustion Analysis,” is now available and covers the maximization of furnace and boiler energy efficiency.
The new training manual covers: concepts and terminology; energy efficiency; energy management; alternative energy; products and systems; comfort cooling; comfort heating; high efficiency forced air heating systems; solar heating systems; optimized steam systems; comfort heating and cooling combination systems; electrical; lighting; plumbing; and reduced water volume systems.
Ferris State University and HVAC Excellence are two of the founding members of the Green Mechanical Council. A portion of the proceeds derived from the manual is donated to the Green Mechanical Council.
The manual is now available through HVAC Excellence, Ferris State University, ESCO Institute, the United Association and wholesalers nationwide. Additional information is available at 800/726-9696 or at www.escoinst.com.
