Not Your Father's Heat Pump: Get Your Program Ready for a Changing Market

Presented by:   Jamie Kono   

Tuesday, March 26 from 10:30 AM until 11:45 AM, Sonoma A

Update your training program with key concepts about heat pumps to prepare your students for success in a changing market and attract federal funding. In 2022, heat pumps outsold gas furnaces for the first time in the US. Advancements in heat pumps over the past 20 years means that heat pumps are able to provide significant, high efficiency heating at ambient temperatures of 5°F and lower. Learn how cold climate heat pumps can allow all-electric systems without large electric resistance backup systems and learn how dual fuel systems can be used to balance utility savings and system first cost. Use DOE's open-source instructor resources and get your heat pump program recognized by DOE.
