This course explores how to successfully design and engineer a central heat pump water heating system using commercial equipment. It explores how commercial HPWH systems meet the requirements of new state and local policies and building codes, and it presents the significant energy savings of these efficient domestic hot water systems. This course introduces the engineering fundamentals of central heat pump water heater systems and evaluates important design considerations, while also presenting the current landscape of market delivery, product availability and refrigerant technologies. Lastly, it introduces Ecotope’s free design tool: the Ecosizer and examines successful case studies.
Audience: This class is intended for engineers, architects, designers, building owners, and facility managers.
