Course description

The design of ASHP installations is vital for the effectiveness of the technology. Too often, systems are designed with the wrong piece of equipment, which can lead to gross oversizing and disappointing performance.

In this lesson, we will explore how low-load homes affect ASHP design and learn how to size and design equipment that will improve customer satisfaction, decrease callbacks, and save money.

Participants will:

  • Understand the design and sizing of ASHP systems
  • Understand the best practices and resources for sizing
  • Be able to model and manage system load requirements appropriately
