Sizing of Heatings Systems with AkWarm

Course Description
The Building Energy Efficiency Standard (BEES) for Alaska requires the sizing calculations for the heating system be provided to prove compliance with the standard. There are two most common methods of providing these calculation are, a heat loss analysis using AkWarm or ACCA manual J. This course will focus on the input requirements for AkWarm to provide the required calculations for proper sizing of the heating appliance to meet the BEES requirements. AkWarm was developed by Alaska Housing Finance Corporation in 1996 and is specifically designed for heat loss analysis of northern climate homes. This program provides a total building heat loss calculation as opposed to the room by room method provided by ACCA manual J. This is a hands on class, a lap top computer is required for this course. Copies of the software and current library data will be provided to all students in this class.
