(3,3) 4 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ECTC 104 - Electricity for Environmental Control Technology II  This is a prerequisite for A.A.S. students only; not a prerequisite for Certificate students.
This is an advanced course in electrical control systems for residential and light commercial HVAC, requiring that students have had either previous training or field experience in the areas of control and instrumentation for HVAC.  This course focuses on residential applications beginning with concepts of automation and feedback for control loops, continuing with a presentation of operating principles of gas, oil and electric heating/cooling control systems and associated equipment, and finally exploring indoor air quality (I.A.Q.) issues. Training is provided in the operation, troubleshooting, diagnosis and repair procedures of mechanical and electrical malfunctions on boilers, furnaces, heat pumps, central cooling systems, humidifying & dehumidifying equipment and peripheral devices, and in the operation, calibration and testing of such systems.  A particular focus throughout this course is towards optimization of control logic for the purpose of energy conservation, via techniques such as thermostat programming, outdoor setback, staging and modulation of equipment components.
