Getting the appropriate information to be sure that a unit will heat your building at design heating temperature can be confusing. In this presentation you’ll learn the latest about heat pumps that can supply heat at temperatures as low as -15°F, and how to understand ratings and manufacturers' data so that you can confidently select the proper system.<br /> <br /> During this lecture, you will learn:<br /> - How heat pump efficiency is expressed by the coefficient of performance (COP)<br /> - How both COP and heating output vary with outdoor temperature<br /> - Why the AHRI ratings aren’t adequate for picking a heat pump<br /> - The process for selecting the proper minisplit heat pump<br /> <br /> Want to keep learning?<br /> 1.

In an effort to describe the opportunities that exist this fast growing market the Construction Center of Excellence and WIRED partnered with Department of Ecology and the Department of General Administration on a film project: Green Building: Jobs of the Future. The film brings together local and national leaders in green building, climate change, manufacturing, and work-force development to make the case for green buildings capacity to create jobs and boost the economy while not further imposing on our environment. In these challenging times, opportunities abound!<br /> Video transcript is available here:<br /> <a href="http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/swfa/g">http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/swfa/g</a>...<br /> <br /> The Washington Department of Ecology's Green Building Group is available to set up Green Building: Jobs of the Future viewing events at schools, businesses, and to community groups. These events can include panel discussions that address green job opportunities available in your region.
