It is not necessary to have attended module one of the short course to take part in module 2 or 3. It is however necessary to have a basic understanding of how a heat pump works, the heat pump cycle and the other topics included in module 1 of the short course.

 

Module 3 - Course overview

This module will explore what needs to be considered when retrofitting an existing building to accommodate a heat pump as the main source of heating.

This course is for those who already have an understanding of how to design a heat pump heating and cooling system. This module will not explain how to design a system but focus solely on how to maximise efficiency when doing so.

Topics included in the course are

  • Data acquisition on demands
  • What can we use?
  • What can we modify?
  • What do we need to buy?
  • What system tweaks are required
  • Using air as a heat carrier
  • Reducing temperature demand in the heating system

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.  

  • Module 1 - Heat pumps, the basics. 
  • Module 2: The behaviour of the heating system. Designing a heating system in a new building with the heat pump in mind.
  • Module 3: The behaviour of the heating system. Retrofitting an existing building to accommodate a heat pump as the main source of heating.

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.
