Tuesday, March 12, 2019 — Sources from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) reported today that ASHRAE is now accepting applications for the new Certified HVAC Designer (CHD) designation. Computer-based testing begins worldwide on June 3.   

The Certified HVAC Designer (CHD) certification validates competency of the HVAC Designer, working under the responsible charge of an engineer, to do the following: 

Design HVAC systems to meet building/project requirements, including load calculations, equipment selection and sizing, mechanical equipment room design, duct and piping design, and layout for the development of HVAC plans for permit and construction.

In the last month alone, over 900 HVAC Designers and employers have downloaded a CHD Candidate Guidebook, which details the CHD examination blueprint and application eligibility requirements. 

Mark Fly, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, and Chair of the CHD Exam Subcommittee, says: “launching a new certification program is a commitment, but ASHRAE is confident this is an investment from which Members and their employees will benefit.”
