Sample Bohemia, NY HVAC Courses

Fundamentals of Refrigeration

Fundamental of Refrigeration covers the principles of matter and thermodynamics which underlie HVAC/R technology. Students become familiar with the major systems as well as the theories upon which the systems are based. The role and types of refrigerants are covered. Also studied are the regulations pertaining to Stratospheric Ozone Protection and their impact on the air conditioning and refrigeration industry. Preparations for EPA Refrigerant Transition and Recovery Certification including methods of converting existing refrigeration systems to the new synthetic oils and refrigerant blends. Lab competencies include hands on dealing with operating refrigeration.

Indoor Air Systems

In Indoor Air Systems the student will learn about types of duct systems, air distribution and balancing and air quality. Both the theory and practice and maximizing indoor air quality are covered, including the conditions for comfort, psychometrics, and dew point temperatures and calculating performance. The theory and use of filters and humidifiers completes the study of indoor air quality. Finally, the practice of calculating refrigeration loads is examined in detail with laboratory coverage of exemplar conditions.

Fundamentals of Electricity

Fundamentals of Electricity introduces the student to basic electricity concepts, electrical test instruments, electrical devices used on heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, and the different types of AC electrical motors. Students learn how to measure voltage, ohms, watts and amperage on series/parallel circuits.
