This course covers inspection of cooling systems and heat pumps. The student learns to identify typical defects in these and apply correct inspection techniques. The student also learns how to identify common energy sources and transfer media used in central air conditioning, common air conditioning configurations, consider the age and capacity of the cooling system, and approximate the adequacy of the system. The student will develop a good understanding of operation of heat pumps, recognize important heat pump components, and detect common problems found with heat pumps, and their components.
Course manual provided for on-going reference. There is a final exam upon completion of the course. Participants who receive 75% or higher on their exam will receive a certificate.
