This summer OHILI will present a special one-day seminar from Bob Hedden.

 

It

is a combination of the NORA Gold Seminar and the new NORA Energy

Conservation Analysis Seminar. NORA Certified Technicians attending the

program will receive 7 NORA CEUs, as well as the NORA Gold

Certification.  This program is designed primarily for

Technicians, but Equipment Salespeople, Managers, and anyone wishing to

do Energy Conservation Analysis will also find it extremely useful. To

earn NORA Gold Certification technicians must be Silver Certified, have 5

years experience in the field working on oil burners, 120 hours of

training, and pass the test. The NORA Gold Seminar is based upon the

NORA Gold book, Efficient Oilheat, An Energy Conservation Guide. which is available from NORA at <a href="http://www.norastore.org. The">www.norastore.org. The</a> purpose of this combined seminar is to give participants a better understanding of the following:

·         The

potential energy in heating oil, as well as how and where that heat

energy is lost before it reaches the living space of the building or the

hot water faucet.

·         The various types of efficiency measures and what they mean.

·         How

to be sure your customer is getting the most heat for their money from

their existing system by covering all the free and low cost energy

conservation strategies, including proper tune-up and adjustments as

well as common sense conservation advice we can give our customers.

·         How to evaluate the various energy conservation investments available.

·         How

to advise customers on investing in new equipment, including sales

techniques, and how to do return on investment calculations.

·         How to maximize savings opportunities without sacrificing safety, reliability, and comfort.

·         How to do a NORA Energy Conservation Analysis.

·         Recognizing

that the building is part of the heating system we will also cover how

to evaluate how well the building is sealed and insulated.

 

NORA’s

goal for this program is to be sure that every oil-heated building is

using energy as efficiently as possible without compromising safety,

reliability, and comfort. Not only will this insure customers are

getting the most from the money they spend heating and cooling their

buildings, energy conservation is also the best answer for protecting

our environment. Participants will learn how to be sure the heating

system is working at maximum efficiency. They will also learn to

identify potential problems with the building and recognize when it

would be advisable for customers to call in building shell and

insulation experts.

 This special combined Seminar will run on August 10th

from 8:00 AM to approximately 3:30 PM at which time the NORA Gold

Energy Conservation Test will be given. The test is 100 multiple-choice

questions and takes about an hour.
