Registration opens Monday for an American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers Internet broadcast on ground-source heat pumps.

The April 21 webcast, “Ground Source Heat Pump Systems – Putting the Earth to Work for You,” will explore how this technology saves money and energy.

“The overwhelming choice from our several webcast surveys has been ground source heat pump systems,” Dave Shugars, chairman of ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee Webcast Ad Hoc Committee, said. “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 will feature 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.
