The use of high performance HVAC equipment can result in considerable energy, emissions, and cost savings (10%-40%). Whole building design coupled with an “extended comfort zone” can produce much greater savings (40%-70%). Extended comfort includes employing concepts such as providing warmer, but drier air using desiccant dehumidification in summer, or cooler air with warmer windows and warmer walls in winter. In addition, high-performance HVAC can provide increased user thermal comfort, and contribute to improved indoor environmental quality (IEQ).

HeatSpring instructors and courses are geared toward high efficiency systems and written for the leaders the industry.

The Impact of Solar Energy on HVAC Technicians

As solar energy is becoming more widespread in the United States, this clean energy source is making its way into the heating and cooling industry. HVAC technicians who want to stay current with the green energy movement should be willing to learn how to install and repair the new solar technologies.

Will solar power make a […]

Deep Boreholes in GSHP Systems: Pressure Considerations & Installation Practices

Factors such as space limitations are forcing engineers to utilize deep boreholes to meet design requirements for Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems.
In such cases, hydrostatic pressures must be considered to ensure successful installation can take place. This short course, led by expert Ryan Carda, P.E., focuses on the necessary calculations along with the recommended […]
