Bad Ass HVAC - A System for Perfect Comfort and Air Quality
Event Description

Most automotive HVAC systems can provide 5 of 6 key functions of HVAC, yet most residential systems can't provide any.

BAD ASS HVAC is designed to provide all 6 functions, work in 90% of homes, be installed by 90% of contractors, and provide fantastic comfort and air quality at least 90% of the time. It's nearly perfect. And it only uses one piece of HVAC equipment to do it all.

We'll discuss the 6 functions of HVAC and their importance, then walk through how BAD ASS HVAC can provide each of them. Lastly, we'll touch on how to shift the HVAC industry from 85% single stage equipment (that is impossible to create BAD ASS HVAC from) to the higher end equipment required.

While best for building professionals with working knowledge of HVAC, homeowners should benefit as well, this is a 102 level course.
