ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has announced a new webcast, “Ground Source Heat Pump Systems – Putting the Earth to Work for You,” which focuses on this heat pump technology. The webcast takes place April 21, 2011, from 1-4 p.m. EDT.

“The overwhelming choice from our several webcast surveys has been ground source heat pump systems,” said Dave Shugars, chair of ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee Webcast Ad Hoc Committee. “This webcast will highlight several critical factors in the evaluation and design process that are essential to deliver system efficiency. From understanding ground characteristics, to avoiding pitfalls of design and installation, the webcast is a must see for discerning owners and designers alike.”

The webcast presenters are Jeffrey D. Spitler, Ph.D., P.E., professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Okla.; Kirk T. Mescher, P.E., principal, CM Engineering Inc., Columbia, Mo.; and Mick Schwedler, P.E., manager, Applications Engineering, Trane, LaCrosse, Wis.

Three Professional Development Hours (PDHs) or three AIA Learning Units (LUs) may be awarded to viewers who complete the participant reaction form online by May 5, 2011.

The live program will be archived online until May 5, 2011, for viewers who are unable to participate on April 21. Registration is required to view the archived program.

Online registration for the webcast begins March 21. For more information on the webcast program, continuing education credits, and ASHRAE ground source heat pump resources, visit www.ashrae.org/ghpwebcast.
