12jan2:00 pm3:30 pmWhat is the System Efficiency of a Community Heat Pump System and How it is Calculated?

Event Details

Often the design of a Community Heat Pump System is separated into two parts by the owner, builder, or architect: one consultant provides the design for the mechanical equipment inside of the building and a second consultant or perhaps a design-build contractor is hired to the provide portion of the system (heat sink /source) outside of the building. Best practices recommended that there be a single point of responsibility for both halves of the system so that there is an improved likelihood that all components of the Community Heat Pump system are selected and analyzed for best achievable system efficiency.


List of topics to be covered:

*Introduce all the system components and performance information necessary to calculate system efficiency.

*Discuss in general terms the AHRI and ISO equipment rating systems. Note shortfalls and challenges.

*Work through a life cycle cost case study comparing two different systems and the impact of system component selections on the overall system efficiency and carbon footprint.


(Wednesday) 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
