Green Mechanical Systems Training Manual

Green Mechanical Systems, Awareness of Fundamental and Emerging Green Technologies - Now Available

Every day the word "Green" enters our lives. We read about Green in the news, we see it on TV and we hear about it on the radio, but what is it and how does it affect us?


When it comes to mechanicals, (HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical) "Green" means maximizing the energy efficiency of existing equipment, specifying the most efficient systems available for the application and the available budget, using renewable and sustainable fuel sources, and conserving water.

Both commercial and residential owners want to be Green and reduce energy consumption. In fact, everyone wants to reduce their energy costs.

Consumers want contractors and technicians to be aware of the various methods employed in reducing energy consumption and conserving water. They want contractors and technicians who are knowledgeable about energy conserving methods and new technologies.

HVAC Excellence and Ferris State University agreed to work together to address the gap in "Green Mechanical" education. This partnership resulted in the development of a new training manual, "Green Mechanical Systems - Awareness of Fundamental and Emerging Green Technologies". This manual printed by ESCO Press is designed to provide a basic understanding of Green concepts, terminologies, systems, and the latest in Green mechanical technology. Ferris State University and HVAC Excellence are developing additional technical training manuals covering an array of Green Mechanical issues.

The first of these Going Green Book Series "Combustion Analysis" is now available and covers the maximization of furnace and boiler energy efficiency.

"Green Mechanical Systems - Awareness of Fundamental and Emerging Green Technologies" covers: Concepts and terminology, Energy efficiency, Energy management, Alternative energy, Products and systems, Comfort cooling, Comfort heating, High efficiency forced air heating systems, Solar heating systems, Optimized steam systems, Comfort heating and cooling combination systems, Electrical, Lighting, Plumbing, Reduced water volume systems, and more.

Ferris State University and HVAC Excellence are two of the Founding Members of the Green Mechanical Council. A portions of the proceeds derived from this manual are donated to the Green Mechanical Council.

"Green Mechanical Systems - Awareness of Fundamental and Emerging Green Technologies" is now available through HVAC Excellence, Ferris State University, ESCO Institute, the United Association, and wholesalers nationwide.
