CREEDMOOR — Soon Vance-Granville Community College’s South Campus will give some of its students an opportunity to be involved in a course all about “comfort cooling.”

During the spring semester, the course for continuing-education and degree-seeking students will cover the installation procedures, system operations, and maintenance of residential and light commercial air conditioning systems.

It seems almost everything you could want to know about the machines for practical, real-world use is made available in the course.

The topics include “terminology, component operation, and testing and repair of equipment,” as well as the production of “assured comfort levels,” according to the college’s website.

Upon finishing, students should be able to use “psychrometrics, manufacturer specifications, and test instruments to determine proper system operation,” it added.

The spring semester starts on Jan. 8 and the Comfort Cooling lab will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. at South Campus. Classwork will be held online.

Students who are working toward an Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration degree should contact Elisa Rodwell at or 252-738-3644.

Those who would like to take the class without pursuing the degree at this time should contact Kyle Burwell at or 252-738-3276.
