Heat pumps were first introduced in the 1950s as a residential heating and cooling solution and rarely scaled to the sizes needed for larger buildings. The same constraints that limit heat pumps in residential use in colder climates require the same considerations for commercial buildings, but on a much bigger scale. Despite their limitations, heat pumps are increasingly available for commercial applications, from small to large buildings, as their use is expanding to cold climates and has the potential to transform the industry.
This webcast will explore a wide range of reliable, efficient heat pump technologies and systems available today. Presenters will review equipment limitations and key application considerations. Heat pump benefits, operating principles and typical applied systems will also be discussed.
- Explain the electrified heating landscape
- Identify key considerations for design flexibility and selection of heat pumps
- Understand key benefits of different types of heat pump technology including VRF, chiller-heaters, packaged units and split systems
