Module 2 - Course overview

This module will explore the behaviour of a heat pump heating system and explore what needs to be considered when designing a heating system for a new building that will use a heat pump for the heating and cooling requirements. 

Topics that will be included in the course are

  • Internal heat loads
  • Load distribution during night and day
  • Ventilation loads
  • Heating system control
  • Ventilation system control

 

Course overview

This full course has three modules. The modules will share best practice as well as common mistakes made when designing, installing and running heating systems based on heat pumps.  

It is not necessary to attend all three modules however a basic understanding of heat pumps will be required to take part in modules 2 and 3. 

The Trainer: Gert Nielsen.Gert Nielsen

For the last 15 years Gert has shared his expertise by delivering lectures and  roadshows for the Norwegian HVAC Association. Gert will share best practice as well as common mistakes made when designing, installing and running heating systems based on heat pumps.
