Recorded on 5/26/2021 as part of the Sustainable Building Maintenance Series
This course will provide prescriptive best practices for maintaining good operations, and an overview of the re-tuning process using building automation system (BAS) trend data. Attendees will learn how to look for and optimize the control strategy for many of the common energy-saving opportunities such as occupancy scheduling, temperature, and static pressure control, and economizer function.
This course is ideal for onsite O&M staff responsible for day-to-day building operation; O&M staff management looking to integrate energy efficiency into their O&M procedures; and offsite contractors (retro-commissioning agents or control vendors) hired to improve a building's energy efficiency.
Basic understanding of commercial building systems (e.g. air handling units, VAV boxes, boilers, chillers) and familiarity with basic functions of building automation systems.

Discharge-Air Temperature Control
Discharge- Air Static Pressure Control
Air-Handling Unit Heating and Cooling
Air- Handling Unit Outside/Fresh Air makeup
Air-Handling Unit Economizer Operation
Central Plant Optimization
Be able to list five low/no-cost prescriptive O&M measures that may apply to your building
Be able to describe the basics of the re-tuning process, and some of the benefits
List at least three examples of poor operations that can be found through the re-tuning process
