What you will learn
Geothermal, a clean, renewable energy source, is gaining in popularity among home and business owners. Through geothermal heat pumps (GHP) or ground source heat pumps (GSHP) that harness this energy, are building officials ready to inspect this equipment?
In this course, Building Officials will become familiar with operations and processes when inspecting air and ground source heat pumps. Participants will learn how earlier versions of heat pumps operated. This will lead into a discussion of what makes modern system functionality more efficient in northern climates.
National and Provincial Building Codes will be referenced, as well as, an assortment of textbooks and instructional texts related to the history and operation of heat pumps.
Building Officials taking this course will walk away with a step-by-step procedure for inspecting air and ground source heat pump equipment during a home / business inspection, including reviewing full inspection report documentation.
