MEDINA, Ohio — Wolff Bros. Supply Inc., an HVAC distributorship in Medina, Ohio, announced that it will host a geothermal expo featuring a hands-on, multi-station outdoor workshop and training arena for its HVAC, geothermal, and drilling customers.

The event takes place Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the company’s Medina location. It will include hands-on workshops covering geo introduction, directional boring, vertical drilling, horizontal loop and pond loop applications, load-sizing, and geo equipment expertise.

The company expects to draw more than 200 professional attendees from Ohio, western Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, and Michigan.

Registration and breakfast will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., and then group station break-outs take place from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Six hands-on workstations for attendees will be provided in 50-minute intervals.

“We make sure that attendees are given hands-on experience with many different facets of geothermal technology and application, focusing on the latest technology and all varieties and types of geoexchange — the process of harvesting Btus from the ground, or a body of water,” said Dave Chenowith, Wolff Bros. Supply HVAC sales manager.

Attendees will also learn about ClimateMaster’s loop design software, GeoDesigner. According to the company, the program is a sophisticated yet intuitive tool for sizing units and exchange fields. The software also helps to demonstrate operating cost savings for potential customers.
