Heat Pumps: Mastering Design Principles 

Dive into the intricacies of ASHPs, demystifying their design principles and ensuring proper application.

Close More

As the HVAC landscape rapidly evolves, air-source heat pumps (ASHP) are at the forefront, signaling a shift towards sustainable and efficient technologies. This session dives into the intricacies of ASHPs, aiming to demystify their design principles and ensure proper applications.

Enter our well-regarded host for the series, Bruce Manclark, Senior Technical Advisor at Earth Advantage. An emblem of expertise and wit in the energy efficiency realm, Bruce's storied career spans over four decades, touching 10,000s of homes through his conservation programs, energy audits, and impactful technical training. Renowned for his engaging presentation style, Bruce combines profound knowledge with liveliness, making even complex topics engaging and relatable.

Later in the session, Greg Davenport from Mitsubishi Electric's Performance Construction Team, will take the helm. An authority on energy-efficient Variable Capacity Heat Pump systems, Greg will shed light on the meticulous system design and equipment selection intrinsic to ASHPs. Attendees will gain valuable insights into essential load calculations, along with the critical components of Manuals J, S, and D.

Join us, under Bruce and Greg's collective guidance, to traverse the world of ASHP system design. Equip yourself with knowledge and steer your projects towards a more efficient HVAC future.

This session is a part of a three-part series on how to effectively design, install and commission air source heat pumps (ASHPs) in residential homes. 

This series has been developed by and for building industry professionals (builders, designers, HVAC contractors, raters, and beyond) to better understand ASHP applications and to provide tangible design principles and construction practices that can be integrated into your building process.

Attend this 'Heat Pump Mastery' webinar series to gain field-tested recommendations from building professionals on the following critical topics:

   Mastering Design Principles

     Trainers: Bruce Manclark (Earth Advantage) & Greg Davenport (Mitsubishi)

   The Ultimate Installation Guide

     Trainers: Bruce Manclark (Earth Advantage) & Matt Ryan (Petra Heating & AC)

   The Art of Commissioning

     Trainers: Bruce Manclark, Matt Ryan, Marc Cregeur (Earth Advantage) & Mike Frey (Noyes Development)

It's imperative to highlight that cold climate ASHPs are no longer emerging equipment — they're mature technologies, ready and reliable for any climate. Their stellar reputation eliminates prior misconceptions and stands as a testament to their adaptability.

Moreover, the efficiency and effectiveness of ASHPs aligns well with advancing energy codes across the NW region and makes them ideal candidates for certifications such as ENERGY STAR and a viable pathway towards unlocking substantial 45L Tax Credits and incentives.

Join us to gain info and insights on how to select appropriate heat pump equipment according to your unique project objectives.

Note: We encourage you to also rattending the ‘45L Tax Credit: What You Need to Know’ training offered as an on-demand course as a helpful precursor to this series.
