Insight Partners is committed to educating and empowering the HVAC community. We do that through our YouTube Channel, HVAC-TV. We cover topics from basic HVAC fundamentals to advanced psychrometrics. Typical subscribers to this channel are HVAC mechanical engineers, mechanical contractors, commercial building owners, and anyone who wants to further their commercial HVAC knowledge. We offer live and recorded PDH-qualified videos where we discuss the science behind air conditioning, design and application, HVAC equipment, product application, and HVAC controls.


Insight Partners, Hobbs & Associates, and our entire family of brands have combined our HVAC industry strengths and expertise to form a collaboration of education that promises to redefine the boundaries of client-centric HVAC training.

Join us for an exciting live recording of Podcast Episode 39, titled "HVAC MythBusters Event: Separating Today’s Fact From Fiction." Tony Mormino and Rhydon Atzenhoffer debunk five prevalent myths in the HVAC industry.

Myth #1: A2L Refrigerants Are Highly Flammable and Dangerous. Myth #2: College Is the Only Path to Success. Myth #3: RH Is an Accurate Way to Measure Humidity. Myth #4: My Digital Compressor Is Short Cycling! Myth #5: Hot Gas Reheat Dehumidifies the Air.

Some Of Our Greatest Hits!

So, what is relative humidity? In simple terms, it is the amount of moisture in the air compared to the maximum amount that could be present at that temperature. It is expressed as a percentage; the higher the percentage, the more moisture is in the air at any given temperature.

In this video, we discuss the difference between a Copeland Digital Scroll Compressor and a Danfoss Variable Speed Compressor. These two HVAC modulating scroll compressor technologies accomplish similar results but are constructed differently.

In this broadcast, we show the difference between Relative Humidity and Dew Point using graphical examples and psychrometrics.

In this video, we take you through the step-by-step process of replacing a large 20-ton unit with a much smaller AAON RN 20 C-Cabinet unit using a custom adapter curb. Thank you Sean McConnel for managing this project for Insight Partners.

In this video, we share three common mistakes regarding equipment sizing and grow room HVAC equipment selection: missing the required dehumidification load, not understanding the room sensible heat ratio, and selecting off-the-shelf air conditioning equipment vs. commercial grow room air conditions, aka grow room dehumidifiers.

One of the most common mistakes in HVAC system design is the lack of understanding of how equipment reacts at part load. Most equipment is sized for full-load temperature control with minimal attention to part-load temperature and humidity control. In this video, we use psychrometrics to explain what happens at part load and the features you want to use to ensure proper temperature and humidity control over all load conditions.

In this LIVE one-hour PDH event, we discuss the current R410A phase-down schedule and a review of the properties of the two via low GWP R410A replacement refrigerants R32 and R454B.

​We talk about the status of the current EPA refrigerant regulations, including the EPA's NOPR (notice of proposed rule), the critical milestones for R410A equipment manufacturing, and the current R410A phase downtime schedule.

In this webinar, we discuss Basic Psychrometrics 101.

We look at properties of air, building the psychrometric chart, psychrometric processes, and finish with examples of determining air properties.

In this Psychrometrics Part 2 presentation, we discuss air mixing, sensible heat ratio (SHR), calculating air quantity, determining tons, and full load vs. part load.

In this LIVE PDH-qualified event, we were joined by Mark W. Fly, PE with AAON, Inc. We discussed different fan types and their characteristics, fan curves and fan laws, how to use and apply them, fan stall and unstable regions of operation, and how to select the best fan for the flow, static, and acoustical performance desired.

In this LIVE one-hour PDH event, Insight Partners CEO Mark Murray and Tony Mormino were joined by three special guests from Nortek Air Solutions, the world's most extensive custom air handling unit manufacturer and creator of the popular Fanwall Technology. This back-and-forth, interview-style presentation uncovered five common myths associated with fan arrays.

In this LIVE PDH-qualified event, I was joined by custom air handling unit expert Mark Brady with Nortek Air Solutions. In this presentation, Mark shares the best techniques for controlling fan arrays. We discuss the optimal number of VFDs, types of controls, and motor overload protection. 

In this LIVE event, I was joined by HVAC water filtration expert David Romeo with Miller-Leaman. We discuss RO Filtration, Thompson Strainers, Turbo disc, and sand filters. David shares the pros and cons of each technology and how it can be applied to your HVAC application. 

In this LIVE PDH-qualified event, I was joined by Tony Furst with Armstrong Fluid Technologies. If you are looking for masterclass on pump and system curves then this video is for you. 

In this LIVE one-hour PDH event, Insight Partners is joined by leading cooling tower expert Mark Pfeifer with Marley, SPX Cooling Technologies.

The learning objectives of the presentation are as follows: Help you choose the right cooling tower for your customer’s needs. Avoid common mistakes in the cooling tower design procedure.

In this live podcast, we quickly look at the six most common types of heat pumps used in the HVAC industry today. Heat pumps are gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional gas heating systems as the world moves towards electrification and away from fossil fuels.

During this podcast, we discuss the skilled trades in the HVAC industry and why there is a shortage of all trades, especially HVAC technicians. The demand for HVAC services has increased significantly in recent years, and the HVAC industry faces a skilled labor shortage.
