A MESSAGE FROM OUR PUBLISHER

The June 2024 Digital Edition of HPAC is here. In this welcome-to-summer issue, we look at where to place that outdoor heat pump unit – considering cold weather will arrive and defrost is always something to think about.

Plus, you’ll find a post-CMPX review, 30 Mechancial Minutes recaps, John Siegenthaler talking hydronics, a look at multi-purpose geothermal solutions, business profitability, marketing, company culture articles and much more:

Hot Blasts and Cold Slugs – Hydronics expert John Siegenthaler looks at how to control the flow when heat pumps switch between space cooling and DHW to maintain maximum personal comfort.

All in One: It Can be Done – Geothermal resource Jeff Hunter considers whether combining radiant heating, forced air and DHW in one combined ground source heat pump is the best option.

Setting Up for Success – Ian McTeer reminds HVAC installers to remember to consider the defrost issues of residential heat pumps when it comes to positioning and commissioning.

Thermal Expansion Valves: Essential to Understand – A critical element of the refrigeration cycle, Dave Demma shares why refrigeration maintenance requires an understanding of how they operate.

In addition, a recap of the live in-person 30 Mechanical Minutes featuring Siggy and The Bean at CMPX, and a summary of the 30 Mechanical Minutes focusing on residential tankless water heaters with Joshua Ferguson.
