WEBINAR: Air Source Heat Pumps
Wed September 20, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by CLEAResult
Course description: The recent shift to electrification and better performing homes has resulted in increased popularity of air source heat pumps. As the industry shifts, design professionals, installers and homeowners need to understand the basic principles behind this technology to effectively provide adequate heating, cooling, and dehumidification in their projects.
This session will provide an overview of Air Source Heat Pumps, which are a fast-growing portion of the residential HVAC market. Today’s ducted heat pumps and “mini split” systems can provide very efficient heating and cooling, but only if they are well designed, installed, and operated. Hear about how proper sizing, installation and operation can affect the indoor air quality along with the occupants’ health and wellbeing.
