HeatSpring, in partnership with John Siegenthaler, P.E., and the SpacePak division of Mestek Corporation, will soon launch a five-week online course entitled: Application of Air-to-Water Heat Pumps for Hydronic Heating and Cooling.
This course explains the benefits of combining modern air-to-water heat pumps with state-of-the-art hydronic delivery systems that provide space heating, cooling, and domestic water heating in both residential and commercial applications. It is designed for heating professionals, including contractors and engineers.
The course begins by building the case for use of air-to-water heat pumps in comparison to other types of heat pump systems. It goes on to discuss specific design details that enhance system performance, especially for cold climate heating. It concludes by presenting several complete system designs for a variety of applications.
This course is approved for 10 AIA learning unit credits, and begins on September 19, 2016.
