Post date: Oct 02, 2014 1:31:59 PM

Variable Speed Heat

Pumps in Cold Climates

Heat Pump technology can save substantial heating energy in a building, but has never been in favor in the Midwest. Newer variable speed heat pump technology is starting to change all of that.

Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand how a heat pump works for space heating and cooling

    2. Compare the differences between single/dual stage heat pumps and variable speed heat pumps

    3. Understand heat pump operation in cold Midwestern climates

    4. Learn how a heat pump can be used in conjunction with a gas furnace or boiler to "get the best of both worlds" in a dual-fuel system

    5. Discuss heat pump water heaters and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Systems

About the Presenter

Thursday, October 9, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT

Continuing Education

The LIVE version of this session qualifies for 1 PDH for Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin PEs. In order to receive a PDH certificate, each attendee must be registered and logged in on a separate computer or tablet. Additionally, the attendee needs to answer the live poll ques tons during the presentation and "participate" in the webinar. GoToWebinar uses a metric called "Interest Rating" for each attendee to determine participation. This statistic is computed from a proprietary algorithm that evaluates each attendee's interactions on a scale of 1 to 100 (100 being best). Factors that contribute to the Interest Rating include, but are not limited to, attendance length, attentiveness during the session (not multi-tasking on email, etc.), number of questions asked and an attendee's successful completion of polls, surveys and registration.
