HIGHER PERFORMANCE BUILDING ON THE CENTRAL COAST – ALL-ELECTRIC CONSTRUCTION, PART 2: HEAT PUMP WATER HEATERS (HPWH) AND OTHER ELECTRIC APPLIANCES
Tuesday, June 7, 2022 (12:00 PM - 1:15 PM) (PDT)
Gain clarity and expertise on today’s higher-performance all-electric construction. Part 2 of our two-part series will focus on heat pump water heaters and other electric appliances. Topics will include why heat pumps are quickly becoming the preferred system for heating water, how they work, design considerations, sticking points, and solutions, as well as cost variables. Emphasis will be on residential, multi-family, and small commercial on the Central Coast or similar climates.
Learning Objectives: Be able to explain the benefits of heat pump water heaters including health, cost, and code compliance. Understand the components and delivery options for heat pump water heaters in your project. Understand how the integration of other electric appliances can improve indoor air quality and optimize the use of renewable energy for energy cost savings. Be able to evaluate potential construction constraints and pitfalls and provide solutions. 1 AIA Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW|LU) Continuing Education Credit (CES) is available for this training.
