Commercial Water Source Heat Pump - (ILT)

 (Six 90-minute sessions) – Qualifies for total of 9 CEHs  (Continuing Education Hours)

Many commercial buildings today use Water Source Heat Pumps (WSHP) to meet their heating and cooling needs. These unique systems can be all electric energy and meet emissions regulations by not using fossil fuel systems for heating. The operation, design, and operation of these systems are unique. Any technician working in commercial buildings must have a basic understanding of these systems. This course is designed to equip commercial HVAC technicians in maintaining and troubleshooting these systems.

Ron Auvil has over 40 years of HVAC and Controls Experience. He has worked as a senior controls technician for Johnson Controls. He has also taught HVAC and Controls classes across the United States for Johnson Controls, Honeywell, and others. He has written several textbooks; ‘HVAC and Refrigeration Systems’ and ‘HVAC Control Systems’ both from American Technical Publishers.

Price: $50. per session    or    $275. for all 6 sessions

Each session qualifies for 1 1/2 CEHs – (Continuing Education Hours)

Many technicians are familiar with residential type air source heat pumps. However, there are significant differences between air source and water source heat pumps. The technician must be familiar with the basic layout of these systems. In addition, the technician must recognize the different options available regarding the water in a WSHP system.

 

Register NOW for Session 2

 

The proper operation of a WSHP system is dependent on the proper layout and understanding the components of the water loop in a WSHP system. Technicians must be familiar with the different components and expected temperature values of the water loop. In addition, technicians need to have a basic knowledge of water treatment approaches in a WSHP system.

 

Register NOW for Session 3

 

The individual WSHP’s provide cooling and heating to the building spaces. Technicians must be familiar with the different styles of WSHP’s. Also, technicians must possess a good knowledge of the typical components, refrigeration cycle, and expected temperature/pressure values in a WSHP.

 

Register NOW for Session 4

 

All WSHP systems are not the same. There are many variations and options available with these systems. To work effectively on these systems a technician must have a  thorough understanding of the most common options used. To ensure proper operation and comfort the system must be installed properly. Any technician encountering a WSHP system must be aware of proper installation techniques as well as identifying issues caused by improper operation.

 

Register NOW for Session 5

 

Every WSHP system must have a properly installed and functioning control system. In this module we will look at the different types of control systems and strategies used, ranging from simple residential type thermostats to advance DDC (Direct Digital Control) systems. This will include water loop control as well as the individual WSHP Units.

 

Register NOW for Session 6

 

To provide reliable comfort long term a WSHP system must be maintained properly. A technician must be familiar with the maintenance needs of both the water loop as well as the individual WSHP units. Finally, technicians need to be able to effectively troubleshoot WSHP systems and components when they fail. We will finish the course by going through real world examples of typical troubleshooting procedures and problems with WSHP systems and components.
