Heat Pumps for Heating and Cooling – Part 2: All-Electric Design and Construction Series

August 8 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am


All-Electric Design & Construction Series

On the path to Zero Net Carbon Design, building electrification is the key to reducing operational carbon. In this course, we’ll share the nuts and bolts of incorporating all-electric systems into residential and small commercial projects, including tips for implementation as well as client communication. We’ll provide straight-forward information on current systems and technologies plus a look ahead at what’s emerging in the market.

Part 1: Carbon Reduction through Building Electrification will address California’s targets for carbon reduction, status of the clean power grid, the role of energy storage and emerging options for refrigerants.

Part 2: Heat Pumps for Heating and Cooling, will address ducted and ductless heat pumps for thermal comfort.

Part 3: Domestic Hot Water, will focus on integrated and split-system Heat Pump Water Heaters, as well as combination systems and point-of-use electric resistance water heaters

Part 4: Ventilation and HRV, will look at exhaust fans, ducted ventilation and heat recovery ventilators that support energy efficiency and healthy interiors

Part 5: Appliances & Energy Storage, looks at electric options for cooktops, dryers and other appliances as well as current and emerging battery technologies for energy storage.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the ‘why’ behind California’s shift to building electrification and the link to Zero Net Carbon Design
  • Learn the pros and cons of various products to help in selecting appropriate systems that meet electrification and carbon-reduction goals
  • Learn critical installation details such as dimensions and venting to call out in plans and/or identify early in construction
  • Understand the local market for specific all-electric/ZNCD equipment, including cost, availability and lead times

Instructors: Jennifer Rennick and Grant Murphy, In Balance Green Consulting

This series has been developed to fulfill the California requirement for five hours of ZNCD education as part of architecture license renewal. Although created with architects in mind, the content is broadly applicable across the building industry.

Zero Net Carbon Design CEUs Available, 1 HSW|LU per class, 5 HSW|LUs in total.
