We are at a crossroads in history. More and more there is  emphasis placed on creating “green” solutions, and the Heating,  Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR) industry is no  exception. Because of this, RSI makes sure that their graduates understand concepts  and technologies as they relate to green applications in HVACR. By making sure  RSI graduates are knowledgeable in the green solutions that have been part of  the industry for a long time, RSI enables their graduates to succeed in the  HVACR field for years to come.

Important Green Techniques Included in RSI’s  Training Programs

Refrigerant Handling

One necessary training that that RSI’s HVACR programs  include is instruction on refrigerant handling. The Clean Air Act requires  certification for refrigerant handling, so starting a refrigeration career  without this training is very difficult. Not only does RSI train their students  in refrigerant handling, they also provide the certificate testing. This means  that RSI students can graduate with the necessary certification for refrigerant  handling as required by the EPA.

High Rated SEER Equipment

Another part of RSI’s green training involves instruction on  the maintenance of high SEER equipment as well as older, less efficient equipment.  SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and it is a rating system  used by the US Government to rate the efficiency of air conditioning equipment.  In 1987 the SEER standard was 10, and in 2006 the standard was raised to 13. As  technological developments continue to be made, SEER ratings will continue to  rise, and standards will continue to rise with them. Because of these  ever-increasing standards, it is important to understand how to work with the  latest high efficiency equipment.

Enhanced Air Distribution Systems

One more technology in the RSI curriculum that applies to  green concepts is the retrofitting of air distribution systems. Thanks to new  technologies it is possible to achieve higher levels of comfort and efficiency through  making improvements of how air is circulated through a building. The key is to  install ducting mechanisms and control systems which allow for better  regulation over where air is delivered. These mechanisms can circulate air  through high traffic areas where it is most needed while circulating less air  through lower traffic areas that don’t need it.
