  • 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.

Overview

The building envelope (exterior walls, roofs, decks, windows/doors, below grade assemblies) of a building needs to be designed and constructed to have satisfactory moisture management, thermal performance, and long-term durability. The HVAC systems on the other hand, need to be designed and constructed to provide appropriate indoor environmental conditions (temperature, relative humidity, ventilation rate, etc.) for occupants. Although these two disciplines are separate, there are noticeable overlaps between the two, to a point that the performance of one will affect the other one.

Our experience has shown that the overlaps between these two disciplines are often not effectively coordinated, leading to compromised moisture management (rain penetration and condensation) and/or thermal performance (heat loss or gain) of the building envelope, or compromised efficiency of the HVAC systems. In either case, the end-result is that the performance and long-term durability of the building as a whole have been compromised.

This interactive and collaborative presentation built upon a wide range of real and interesting case studies will:

  • Discuss the overlaps between the scopes of the building envelope and HVAC disciplines
  • Highlight examples where the lack of coordination of the overlaps has led to performance problems
  • Demonstrate the required coordination measures and provide practical solutions to effectively handle the overlaps between the two disciplines

About the Presenter

Hamid Heidarali has a strong passion for high performance, durable buildings that minimize their impact on the environment, while providing a superior experience for their occupants. He has been providing building science consultation on a wide range of projects in Canada over the past 14 years. He enjoys sharing his experience with others and to that note, he teaches Building Envelope courses to Masters Students as part of the Building Science Graduate Program at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and also presents to construction professionals on a regular basis.

Hamid holds Professional Engineering designation (P.Eng) in Ontario and British Columbia, a LEED Accredited Professional in Canada, and certified Passive House Tradesperson through Germany. He received his Master of Engineering in Building Science and Construction Management, and his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Hamid is a Principal at Hamid Design Build (HDB), a Building Science consulting firm, offering services with the focus on improving energy efficiency, moisture management, durability, and thermal comfort.

  • Describe the advantages of using radiant floor heating technology;
  • List application opportunities for radiant heating in residential, commercial, civic and institutional categories;
  • Utilize the design process for radiant heating systems to determine floor temperatures, pipe spacing and fluid flow rates;
  • Explain the types of control systems incorporated in radiant heating systems.
