Optimising – Enlightenment – Emitter and Insulation Curve
Discover the relationship between emitters and insulation
This heat pump optimising course covers the specifics of heat pump specification and design in relation to emitters and insulation. It gives guidance on the nuances of how to specify for maximum efficiency that all other heat pump training lacks. Rather than the detailed approach of our Mastery course, which focuses on theory, this course utilises lookup tables and has a more practical approach. Optimising is where you’ll learn about the key aspects of heat pump system design in order to maximise efficiency and get the most out of any system.
This Course Covers:
1. Intro to Low Flow TemperatureFor all water based heating systems, the number one thing, and the aim of this course, is to minimise the flow temperature. This isn’t just a case of bigger radiators. This section covers all of the other things required to achieve the lowest possible flow temperatures and the additional benefits this has.
2. Emitters and InsulationEmitters and insulation is a two way street. There exists a relationship between the two. This section doesn’t go into the depths of complex heat loss calculations, but rather shows you how to carry out quick approximation methods to estimate property heat losses and radiator sizing for heat pump systems.
3. Conversion FactorsConversion Factors are used to specify radiators from manufacturer’s catalogues when designing for differing radiator temperatures. Here we show you how to use these and how to select the right radiator sizes for low flow temperature systems.
4. InsulationThere’s a hidden benefit of insulation that’s seldom talked about, yet gives us huge gains. We’ll show you by example how insulation improves the efficiency and running costs of a system by a lot more than you might think!
5. Insulation TypesCovers the conventional types of insulation and other simple ways to prevent heat losses from a property.
6. Heat Pump SizingHeat pump sizing can sometimes be a bit of a minefield and getting this right is crucial for the performance and efficiency of a system. Manufacturer’s rated capacities are not all they seem and can sometimes be misleading. Here we show you how to understand heat pump capacity data and how to use it to correctly specify a heat pump. We go into detail about heating demand vs heat pump capacity, bivalent points and supplementary heating.
