Event description


Join us for a repeat of our popular in-depth introduction to energy-efficient heat pump and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology. This training will explain how these systems work, how they compare to other heating and cooling equipment, how you can identify appropriate applications, and how to access incentives toward installation costs from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and others.
