Cold Climate Heat Pumps

Do you install equipment in regions where cold weather temperatures are often below freezing? You can help your customers improve occupant comfort and save up to 70% on heating costs by offering high efficiency heat pumps designed for cold climates. In this webinar you will learn how to select equipment with the appropriate heating performance in a cold climate, as well as system design and installation considerations to ensure the equipment operates trouble free.

Northwest Building Stock Assessment (RBSA)

In order to benchmark the region’s residential energy efficiency work and support Northwest resource and energy efficiency planning, NEEA conducts a Residential Building Stock Assessment (RBSA) on behalf of the region every five years. The RBSA is a regionally representative assessment of single-family and multi-family residences and buildings that catalogues characteristics and equipment impacting energy use.

On July 15, 2021, NEEA staff will provide updates on the RBSA 2022. This webinar will present information on the study’s sample design, recruitment, characteristics collected, and schedule for fieldwork. This is the second webinar in a series that will be held throughout the course of 2021.

Please join to learn about the details of the upcoming RBSA and find out how to get involved!

PTCS: Heat Pump Sizing – A Focus on Cooling

Properly sizing heat pumps is important for every installation. Most of the focus in the northwest is on sizing to meet the heating load, but assuring comfort for cooling is also important. In this live webinar, we will discuss sizing for cooling to align with ACCA Manual J and S, using appropriate heat gain inputs in your sizing tool and making sure to use detailed cooling capacity tables.
