Heat pump technologies used in sustainable construction
1 day training delivered by industry experts on heat pump technologies used in sustainable construction. Topics included in the day include:
a) Operation of heat pumps - basic heat pump systems, efficiency of heat pump systems with regard to Co-efficient of Performance (CoP) values, the benefits of operating a heat pump system, local planning requirements and standards associated with domestic heat pumps.
b) Implications of installing heat pump systems - geological related features that impact on ground source heat pump specification, retrofit modifications required for heat pump systems, new build specifications required for heat pump systems, the importance of maintaining thermal efficiency when considering perforations in the building envelope, associated risks to the building plot and surrounding elements.
At the end of the session all participants will be given access to our online resource centre with additional resources and links to continue developing your knowledge of this sustainable construction topic
