Event description
A virtual program for building professionals considering specifying a GSHP system for an upcoming commercial project.

About this event

Who should attend

The presentation will benefit architects, mechanical system designers, developers, contractors and their clients.

What you will learn

There is a fundamental difference in the methodology needed to design a ground source heat pump (GSHP) system and that employed to design a conventional heating, cooling and air conditioning (HVAC) system. A conventional HVAC system is connected to an external energy source (such as a gas pipeline or external fuel delivery system) that can deliver as much heating as needed as long as the external supplier is paid. Only the peak heating load calculation is needed to design it. Heat taken from a system with a conventional HVAC system is dissipated to the atmosphere through a cooling tower or air cooled condenser designed for the peak cooling load of the building.

A GSHP system transfers heat to and from a finite mass of earth. The amount of heat that can be transferred to and from a ground heat exchanger (GHX) is limited. It operates more as an energy storage system than an infinite energy source. As such, the size and performance of a GSHP system is sensitive to the balance between heat transferred to and from the GHX.

This presentation demonstrates the impact changes to a building and / or mechanical system have on the size and performance of a GSHP system and how energy modeling can be used to minimize the size and cost of a GHX, while ensuring long-term, efficient operation.

This live Zoom program will provide detailed information on the benefits of planning their projects with Geothermal Heating and Cooling systems as the prime source of atmosphere control in their projects.

As more and more communities and municipalities implement “Climate” goals and regulations, Geothermal will often be a part of the solution. Geothermal not only proves to be one of the most economical heating and cooling systems operationally (Costs to run) but also in getting initial financing. This program will also offer numerous project examples and case studies.

Employees of Pennsylvania will also learn about Cash grants available to take formal courses from IGSHPA, earning certifications that are in the process of being revised. Professionals needed continuing credits for their existing certifications may also be eligible for grants covering up to 50% of the courses that you need to take.

Registration is required. THE ZOOM INFO FOR THIS EVENT WILL BE SENT TO YOU IN A CONFIRMATION EMAIL UPON COMPLETION OF REGISTRATION.
