SELACACI Holds Monthly Heatload Workshops
SELACACI hosts monthly gatherings on heatload analysis to provide a way for HVAC contractors to learn skills using heatload software and to improve sizing calculations.
** New Day and Time **
Every 1st Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Delgado Community College’s Jefferson Campus, 5200 Blair Dr., Metairie, off Airline Hwy., west of Transcontinental. HVAC Department, Building B, Room 2
Personalized orientation, skill-development, and problem-solving involving Computerized Heatload Analysis. This is a regular event held every month. Free help & advice — Take advantage of this while it’s available!
If you’re new to computerized heatload analysis, the workshop will offer orientation. If you want to develop your skills further, you’ll be in good company.
Each month, these networking sessions have grown more popular. Given the competitive nature of the industry and the investment of time necessary for contractors to properly go through all the steps of Manual J (A/C Sizing) & D (Duct Sizing) & S (Equipment Selection), it’s critical for technicians to understand the various steps in the process and to know to what degree shortcuts may or may not be acceptable — to avoid problems with the actual installation.
This effort is not meant to take the place of heatload software training courses, but rather to provide an ongoing forum for the exchange of information, promoting maximum productivity. Come & Bring Your Hard Questions!
There is no charge for these informal meetings; they are not a “class” per se (but you might learn as much as in a class). To receive monthly email confirmations of SELACACI’s Heatload Workshops, join SELACACI’s listserv for updates if you’re not already on it.
SELACACI’s Board continuously invites input & ideas as it develops upcoming programs.
