BOC 1006: Low-Cost Operational Improvements

Event ID: A14818
Info: Nov 30, 2017 • Thu • 8:00am-4:00pm • 1 mtg • UHM Krauss 12 • $200 (General) • Sweater and brown bag lunch suggested • Register/withdraw by Aug 31
With: Robert Bellizzi

BOC 1006: Common Opportunities for Low-Cost Operational Improvement introduces common opportunities that offer the greatest energy savings potential.

Typical areas and problems associated with different system types and equipment are examined, as well as tools and techniques for identifying opportunities. No project is due afterward.

By the end of this module, you are able to:


  1. Develop a Building System Operations Map.

  2. Schedule building systems and equipment and implement operational strategies to limit equipment on-time.

  3. Identify critical control sensors in a building and recognize symptoms of sensor error.

  4. Identify control strategies and equipment faults that lead to excessive reheat and recool.

  5. Recognize common symptoms of simultaneous heating and cooling.

  6. Recognize symptoms of poor outside air control and look for typical problems.

  7. Understand concepts of common HVAC systems and how the design makes them prone to certain problems causing excessive energy use.

  8. Recall how loggers are used for energy profiling, estimating savings potential, trouble shooting.

  9. Identify applications for loggers and analyze logger data for operating hours, temperatures, loading, other parameters.

  10. Recall how logger data is used estimate savings potential.

To qualify for Building Operator Certification, BOC 1006: Common Opportunities for Low-Cost Operational Improvement must be completed with BOC 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005, and 1009.

The United States Green Building Council (www.gbci.org) has approved the core BOC Level I curriculum for continuing education hours toward the LEED Credential Maintenance Program. BOC 1006 is approved to earn LEED credential holders 8 continuing education hours.

Robert Bellizzi, MBA, BS in Engineering, PE Mechanical Engineering, has had a comprehensive career designing and installing energy management solutions for large commercial HVAC plants, both in Hawai‘i and California.
