8:30am - 4:30pm EST
$299.00/person + applicable taxes
For group rates, please contact for more details.

In this course, "Building Officials Guide to Inspecting Air & Ground Source Heat Pumps," Building Officials will become familiar with operations and processes when inspecting air and ground source heat pumps. In addition, participants will learn how earlier versions of heat pumps operated. This will lead to a discussion of what makes modern system functionality more efficient in northern climates.


Upcoming webinar on May 14, 2021, about reframing the policy discussion on geothermal heat pump systems.


A recent study by Dunsky Energy Consulting highlights the unique benefits of ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems to the long-term development and management of a sustainable electricity grid.
