  • Principles of Moving Air / TECA’s Quality First POMA course has been completely overhauled from its 2008 origin. The new POMA manual has over 100 photos, 150 illustrations, charts and graphs. Presenter: David Hill of Eneready Products will provide a 10 minute overview of this new and improved course. We hope that those of you who wish to problem solve low flow or noisy duct systems, avoid problems in new construction or simply gaining a basic understanding of  how fans and duct work together, you will find this course very worthwhile.
  • Heat Recovery Ventilator / TECA’s New Quality First HRV Course / TECA is preparing to launch the newly developed HRV course. This presentation will touch on some of the important aspects of the course including: HRV & furnace or air handler integration, appliance selection, primary governing parameters and proper balancing and measurement techniques. Proper ventilation of increasingly air-tight homes is becoming extremely important, as it effects everything from occupant comfort, building envelope longevity, and even health and safety. The TECA course will enable successful attendees to properly design, install & balance an HRV/ERV system. Presenter Christopher Dawe, B.Eng., Energy 1 Design will provide a 10 minute overview of this new course.

  • Heat Loss / Heat Gain, as per CSA F280-12 / TECA has designed a simple heat loss and heat gain excel-based tool that summarizes the calculation methods described in the CSA F280-12. This tool will enable users to properly calculate the heating and cooling loads of a home in compliance with the BC Building Code; explicitly requiring the CSA F280-12 calculation methods. This will be available in the fall, 2018 as a stand-alone heat loss course, and will also replace the current heat loss sections of the hydronic systems design course, and the forced-air guidelines course. The program will also be available for purchase online through the TECA website.

This 20 minutes presentation will discuss the three components of the TECA-designed heat loss program:

1: Construction Details – includes the local environment, mechanical systems in the home, number of occupants and construction details of all building elements. User can input manufacturer data , wherever known, or select construction types from a list.

2: Floorplan – the room-by-room dimensions, location, specified construction types, occupant loading and present heating system.

3: Results – includes the building loading, mechanical system requirements, and room-by-room loads. All user input and assumptions are stated on the results page and cannot be adjusted by the program user; a critical component of any heat loss and heat gain.
