Energy Conservation

TPC’s Energy Conservation training series explains how to recognize where energy losses occur so that maintenance employees can take proper corrective measures to stop the losses. Throughout each course, Trainees will learn about energy conservation in heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems as well as in the building structure itself-walls, ceilings, and floors. In addition, the training program demonstrates how to conduct an energy audit so trainees can quantify the options available and determine the payback period for each option.
