Nov. 12, 2013: AIA-Certified Courses on Geothermal Systems Offered by ClimateMaster

Courses Cover Fundamentals of Geothermal Heating and Cooling, and Hybrid Geothermal System Design

OKLAHOMA CITY — ClimateMaster has announced the availability of a new set of geothermal system educational courses developed in conjunction with the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The courses, offered as lunch-and-learn sessions that are eligible for AIA continuing education credits, are focused on the fundamentals of geothermal heating and cooling systems, and on hybrid geothermal system design.

“Recognizing the challenges architects face in staying up-to-the moment on new trends, while also meeting their licensure requirements for continuing education, ClimateMaster has recently developed a set of informative geothermal courses that also offer the potential to earn valuable CES credits,” said Tony Landers, commercial marketing manager at ClimateMaster.

Providing participants with an introduction to geothermal systems, the “Geothermal Heating and Cooling” course (No. AIAGEOTHERMAL) includes an in-depth explanation of the geothermal heat pump concept, as well as the different types of loop field installations. In addition, the course outlines the advantages of heating and cooling with water-source heat pumps, including the specific financial advantages of using geothermal heat pump systems. It also highlights the advantages of hybrid geothermal system designs.

The “Hybrid Geothermal Systems” course (No. HybridGeo2013) explores the advantages of hybrid geothermal systems in reducing upfront costs while maintaining the energy efficiency and cost saving benefits of a renewable energy system. The course specifically examines the principles of a water-source heat pump system, and compares the features of a conventional water-source heat pump system with a geothermal heat pump system. It also illustrates how to reduce the size of a geothermal loop field while maintaining the capacity required by a system’s heating and cooling needs. In addition, the course provides real-world examples of hybrid geothermal systems to emphasize the potential cost savings that can be achieved.

ClimateMaster is a leading manufacturer of geothermal and water-source heat pumps. For more information, visit www.climatemaster.com.
