Residential Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC): Small Heat Pumps and Small Furnaces for High Efficiency and More Affordability
May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In this fourth session, Rick Chitwood will discuss residential HVAC systems. The session is for all audiences: home owners, HVAC design/construction veterans, and other building professionals. Residential HVAC systems can deliver excellent energy efficiency and greatly improved comfort when air infiltration through the building enclosure is confirmed to be low, equipment is properly sized and the performance of the whole system is tested and measured during and after installation. However, currently this rarely happens! The only thing we definitely know about most new HVAC systems is theoretical performance and installation cost.
