About this Event


During this session, we will discuss the advancements in ductless heat pumps and the application for high-performance homes. Learn about the concept of high performance homes and the application of residential variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems to meet their design and efficiency requirements. We will review the scale upon which high performance homes are measured, the process to properly design an HVAC system for these homes, and ventilation and dehumidification strategies that are required in low load homes. (webinar recorded February 15, 2019 )


  1. Identify residential VRF system components and describe their design flexibility in high performance homes.
  2. Describe the benefits of heat pumps in cold climate applications.
  3. Describe how high performance home program criteria can be met with residential VRF systems.
  4. List the benefits residential VRF systems provide for the design of high-performance homes.
