About this program:

As an HVAC contractor would you like to learn how to move through the maze of information in the world of Indoor Air Quality?

TruTech Tools is teaming up with the to create a Guide to IAQ for HVAC contractors. 

Moving from clarifying the need/complaint, to Air Quality Diagnosis, through design and implementation to solution and subsequent monitoring, this unbiased guide gives you more than just words, it actually includes data from anecdotal experiments conducted by the authors of the guide. We will also get a little "sciency" on you with descriptions of sensors and IAQ equipment technology.

Learning goals:


1- understand what makes up "good air"


2- Learn how air quality parameters are measured


3- Learn what type of equipment can be used to improve air quality


4- See anecdotal experience and monitoring of solutions
