    What's Changing in the World of HVAC?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Just like any other industry, the world of HVAC is changing as more complex and powerful technology becomes available. This contributes to many different aspects of the consumer’s home life, the HVAC workforce, economic development, and energy efficiency.

    Controls

    An appliance may only be as effective as the user’s ability to control it in a productive way. Fortunately, this principle has been recognized and applied to make appliances and interfaces easy to use for the consumer. Thermostats are now being made with the ability to learn the user’s preferences in order to easily provide optimal levels of comfort. Many can be controlled using applications on a mobile device or the internet for remote control. Some can even modify their actions once you input your zip code.

    Efficiency

    Modern technology is often employed to make appliances more efficient; this plays an economic role in that energy bills may be significantly reduced. Between Desiccant-Enhanced Evaporation Air Conditioning (DEVAP) air conditioners that cut down energy usage by more than half and zero-energy buildings that can shift from using energy to producing it, technological advancements are being used to promote sustainability through efficiency. Some of the larger scale technology is currently more appropriate for commercial use due to the considerable upfront investment. However, most of these technologies are expected to find their way into homes in the future.

    Employee Wellness

    The changing world of HVAC is becoming more able to deal with and prevent “sick building syndrome.” Illness is often spread in the workplace, but more efficient HVAC appliances that yield cleaner air can help combat this trend and help to protect employees from exposure to contagions at work.

    The Importance of Drafting in the World of Construction

    Last updated 2 years ago

    When it comes to construction, very detailed plans must be laid out before a project can begin. It is the responsibility of the architectural drafter to draw up these plans and make sure that they are precise. Watch this video to learn about the importance of drafting in the world of construction.

    Construction is not done by freehand, especially at larger scales. The project must be drafted to ensure that the result will be sound, safe, and up to code. The drafter works with engineers, architects, and scientists to turn construction ideas into viewable images. A draft may detail an entire project from different angles, noting the exact specifications as well as the type of materials to be used.

    For more information about how to become a professional drafter and work in the construction industry, call Chattahoochee Technical College at 678-384-4958. In addition to our Drafting Technology program, we offer more than 45 programs of study through traditional classroom courses as well as online training in Georgia. You can find out more about our technical college by visiting ChattahoocheeTech.edu.

    Stress Management Tips

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Between continuing your education and searching for a career, you may feel some stress from time to time. Stress is a completely normal, natural response, but it can get out of control. Watch this helpful video for a look at what causes stress and how to handle it.

    Stress is a survival mechanism designed to quickly get you out of a dangerous situation. This emergency physical state is only meant to last for a brief period, but in today’s world, everyone stresses about everyday things all the time. When stressed, you are less able to think clearly, learn, and remember things. Try to take deep breaths, get plenty of exercise, make a plan of action, or socialize when you feel stressed. These activities can counteract the effects of stress and help you regain control.

    If you need a little extra guidance during your college career, get in touch with Chattahoochee Technical College’s counseling and support services. This is just one of many services we’re proud to offer our students as they pursue their education and career goals. Call us at (678) 384-4958 to learn about our many academic programs in Georgia.
