About Continuing Education Credits: To receive CE credits for a webinar, you will need to pass a quiz with a score of 80% or greater. Once you complete all modules and pass the quiz, a course completion certificate will be available within the learning management system; you may download these any time by clicking on the certificate icon next to your initials. All credits have different expiration dates, so it is to your advantage to take the quiz as soon as possible. If you need credits submitted on your behalf, please contact credits@slipstreaminc.org.

Existing building commissioning

Existing building commissioning is a process that can result in 10-15% savings of a building’s annual energy consumption if applied appropriately and rigorously. This webinar will begin with a brief introduction to the existing building commissioning process. Then, focus on facility and/or system characteristics that make a building a good or poor existing building commissioning candidate. You will learn about the various factors that impact the time required for and/or cost of existing building commissioning and the potential benefits, including non-energy benefits, of the process. This webinar is targeted to facility operators who may choose to implement existing building commissioning.

Inside the lab: Packaged rooftop unit orientation

Join us in the lab for a virtual visual system identification of rooftop units and their many components. Get a better understanding of how much energy they consume and how much they cost to operate. Are there ways to save energy on the existing unit? Should you spend money to repair a rooftop unit (RTU) when it fails or should you replace it with a new unit? Or should you replace it before it fails? Take the mystery out of that overlooked HVAC system on your roof and learn how to make it work for you instead of against you.

Maximize your building automation system: Cost-benefit analysis: Quantifying energy conservation opportunities

Maximize your building automation system: Part 3. Now that you’ve learned how to make the most of your trend data, learn how to identify common energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) to reduce your facilities energy consumption and costs. To maximize your efforts, you must first identify your facility’s potential ECOs before you pursue. It is also important to accurately quantify ECO implementation benefits, especially if there is an upfront cost associated with them. In this webinar, we will build on your knowledge of trend data and you will learn and practice the common metrics used to measure ECOs savings potential.

Maximize your building automation system: Make better use of trend data

Maximize your building automation system: Part 2. There are instances when a snapshot in time does not provide enough information to understand what is really happening with your BAS. All that real-time data (temperature, pressures, setpoints, damper commands, etc.) can be recorded, however. These trend-logs can provide a window into the past to help diagnose the root cause of the issue.  Trend-logs can also be used to right-size equipment, benchmark energy consumption, identify energy conservation opportunities, and perform a host of other activities. In this webinar, you will learn how to decipher trend-log information.

Maximize your building automation system: Utilize building automation systems to troubleshoot in real-time

Maximize your building automation system: Part 1. Many buildings use BAS to control and monitor the facility’s HVAC systems. The BAS provides a wealth of real-time information to the building operator. This helps to troubleshoot when issues arise. However, the BAS is an under-utilized tool in identifying such problems. Building operators can view the BAS prior to physically going to investigate an issue. Oftentimes, the BAS alone has the answers to solve an issue at hand. If not, it can help narrow your focus on what needs to be looked at prior to investigating. View this webinar to hone your BAS utilization skills. You will learn the system’s sequence of operation and a methodical approach to identify the root cause of an issue.

Electrical energy savings opportunities in metals manufacturing

Is your metals manufacturing facility in need of an energy efficiency upgrade but additional cost is preventing you from making the change? Join us for an overview of cost-effective strategies and technologies to consider in a metals manufacturing facility to reduce operating costs and improve profitability. Learn about several common energy and efficiency improvements associated with general motor driven equipment, compressed air, pumps, cooling, dust collection and combustion fans, welders, machining equipment, lighting, and more.

Building products and systems: the good, the bad, the ugly

New building products and systems crop up like both sturdy trees and annoying weeds. Sometimes it is not so easy to tell the difference. Peter has been evaluating building products and systems for more than 30 years. He will lay out a "protocol" for evaluating building materials and then apply that lens to new products and even his Wingnut testing.

Bath fan installed performance: the pressure is on!

The subject of indoor air quality (IAQ) gets a lot of press these days and it's often assumed that just because a home is new that the installed mechanical ventilation systems can contribute to better IAQ. The most common types of ventilation systems include whole-house, bathroom spot, and kitchen spot. Of these three systems, it is Joe’s belief that the bathroom spot fans are probably used most frequently and are the most important, yet why do so many test poorly? This session will highlight several case studies clearly demonstrating the importance of good products combined with good installation practices.

Cathedral roof venting deep dive and demo

Last year, we demonstrated the Wingnut Roof Vent Testing on a small demonstration rig. Although the two-by-four easel rig revealed quite a bit about cathedral roof venting, it brought up the question of how it compares to real roofs. This session will show you how the demo rig has been improved. You will witness a theatrical fogger demo that will reveal what happens on real roofs for vented cathedral roof assemblies. You will understand how roof slope, depth of vent chute, orientation, and type of ridge vent all affect if and how much air is actually venting.
