ApacheHVAC Basics

This FREE course provides guidance on ASHRAE Heating & Cooling Loads, HVAC Equipment Sizing, and the creation of different HVAC systems.

Note that the first 3 videos must be watched sequentially, as they build upon each other.

You will learn about:

  • Video Part 1:
    • Calculate heating and cooling loads for rooms and zones using the ASHRAE Heat Balance Method.
    • Export results in PDF and XLS formats.
    • Size HVAC Equipment (Chillers, boilers, coils, fans, etc.)
  • Video Part 2
    • Airside User-Interface and Common Workflows
    • Airside Components; Controllers; System Parameters
    • Calculations & Simulations
  • Video Part 3
    • Waterside User-Interface and Common Workflows
    • Non-hydronic Plant; Hydronic Plant; Waterside Controls; Scheduled Loads & HVAC-only simulation
    • Calculations & Simulations

The following lessons cover topics including:

  • Guidance on Variable Air Volume (VAV) Systems
  • Using the VE for ApacheHVAC Plant Modelling
  • The function of ApacheHVAC controllers on the airside network
  • The steps to define performance chiller curves for simulation
