Diligence + Leadership

Taylor Engineers has earned its place as Bay Area experts in mechanical, plumbing and control system designs. What is especially unique to our firm is a longstanding commitment to advancing the industry at large from a global perspective. We have written the energy and indoor air quality codes and standards engineers work with every day. We provide design guides and tools, teach via tutorials and presentations, write articles for publication and deliver educational seminars, forums and continuing education courses. 

Each year, our engineers teach core courses for the UC Berkeley Extension/Golden Gate Chapter of ASHRAE co-sponsored HVAC/R certificate program. Complete information and registration in available on UC Berkeley Extension.

HVAC Ductwork and Piping Systems (X470)

Taylor principals have been teaching this popular course through the UC Berkeley Extension Service since 1989.  The course manual was developed by Steve Taylor with an emphasis on commercial applications in the greater Bay Area. The course encompasses engineering fundamentals and practical considerations for the design of components and layout of HVAC systems and equipment, lectures include selection and specification of components such as fans, coils, filters, pumps, chillers, cooling towers, boilers, water heaters, terminal devices and air outlets. Design of air and water distribution systems is outlined with consideration for first cost, energy costs, and other practical matters such as space and maintenance. Energy conservation measures are highlighted throughout the course, presented with consideration for energy codes, utility rebate programs, and economic evaluation.

HVAC System Design Considerations (X472)

This course covers HVAC design applications: HVAC system selection; HVAC system analysis; indoor air quality (IAQ); energy conservation; life cycle-cost analysis; commissioning; and other topics. Course Catalog Page

Temperature Controls for Heating and Air Conditioning Systems (X473)

This course covers the design and commissioning of control systems. Topics include:  pneumatic, electric and DDC controls; sensors and control devices; development of point lists; energy efficient control sequences; open control protocols; issues for control retrofits; control system performance verification; and other topics. Course Catalog Page
