I just took this, and thought it was very good. I learned a lot of things I hadn't known before.
Very detailed, and well done. Thanks!

The basic ways of enterprise energy audit is based on the principle of energy balance, material balance, the statistical analysis of the utilization of energy of the state-owned enterprises, including enterprise's basic situation investigation, production and management of field investigation, data collection and review summary, a typical system and equipment running status survey, energy and material inventory audit and so on a content, supplemented by site inspection when necessary, to the enterprise production and business operation in the process of input and output of a full range of audit, closed, analyzing various factors (or link) which affect the level of energy and material consumptions, so as to screen out the problems of waste and energy saving potential, and to analyze the causes of the problem, puts forward improvement measures.:)](http://pcb.hqew.net/?s=544864)

Just completed the course. Great information.

I would like to comment on the methods of heat transfer. In addition to the three listed as conduction, convection, and radiation, I believe that the latent heat of evaporation and condensation of water is also critical and should be added to the list.

Consider that the infrared camera is seeing relative temperature differences and the primary driver of these differences is evaporation.

Hi Everyone:
Just completed this course. It showed me what to expect and what to look for during any HVAC upgrade installations and duct or chimney modifications. Nice course to complete the HVAC training with.
thanks,

Hi everyone:
I just finished the energy audit course and it really helped me understand how a home can be so energy deficient. The different ways of looking and gauging how a home energy audit can be helpful was very informative. A really great course for both beginner and expert.
thanks
