The Case for Practical Home Performance Electrification
The best outcomes for heat pumps and home electrification come through careful planning and incorporation of multiple facets of a building. Understanding the intersection of energy efficiency and performance is critical to ensuring comfort, low operational costs, and avoidance of major grid infrastructure upgrades.
This webinar will focus on the interdependence of building systems and how addressing multiple components of a home through phased or integrated upgrades is optimal and easily achievable.
- Define the air barrier, pressure boundary, and thermal boundary
- Explain two ways “box swapping” a heat pump for an existing furnace can go wrong
- Explain the importance of performing complete load calculations
- List two of the top four areas of focus for proper heat pump installations
