The subject provides more comprehensive information on the climate of cities, settlements and buildings, hydraulice Pipeline. It also deals with the calculation of internal sewerage, internal gas pipeline, design of installation units, heat sharing, indoor climate of buildings, home heating sources, air conditioning, ventilation and air conditioning. The course deepens the knowledge about energy performance of buildings and introduces new technologies (use of non-traditional energy sources).
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Students will acquire knowledge and skills throughout the field of technical building equipment. Gets clear information about how the internal wiring installation in buildings - water, sewer, gas and plumbing units (health technology).
