Our Courses

Heat Geek Heating Mastery is an online training course focusing on heating design and controls in the heating industry. Heating Mastery is broken up into two smaller courses, ‘The Awakening’ which teaches the fundamentals of heating design and ‘Mastery’ which goes deeper into hydronic understanding and theory. The specific aim is to give real-world usable information and practices in a simple to understand way and cut out unnecessary jargon. , enabling you to install more efficient systems and move into renewables such as heat pumps and also commercial heating.

Each course can take anywhere between 15 and 35 hours to complete, depending on your current knowledge level and how much you partake in peer to peer engagement. Access will be given for a limited time only of 6 months. This can be extended for one further month, however only if requested prior to the original expiry date. During this time you will build an ultimate reference folder for you to refer back to long term throughout your career.

It’s highly important that you interact and ask questions on the Facebook group.
Peer to peer discussion has been proven to be by far the best way of implementing knowledge and cementing that knowledge into memory, unless you’re a brainbox and find it all incredibly easy.

Please note: If you do not have access to a printer or cannot edit a workbook on a tablet or laptop, you may wish to additionally purchase a physical workbook which will cost circa £25 and will be fulfilled by a 3rd party.

Please note: Course prices are currently running a reduced rate and are set to increase without notice.

This Course Covers:

 

1. Watt is energy?

What are Joules? What exactly are Kilowatts? How do they apply to thermal energy and what is Delta T?

This section highlights the difference between power and energy and frames how we are going to measure the energy we are trying to create, store, and distribute. As well as description of some of the terms and measurements used within the industry and this course

2. Heat loss

R-values, K-values, U-values. What these are and how we use these to calculate the thermal energy required for a building. An essential part of the two-part method of creating a low temperature system.

• How much ventilation is required for each room and what this means for heat loss.
• What happens to heat loss throughout the year
• Basic rules of thumb for quotations and calculations on the fly.

3. Mass flow rate

This introduces and explores the holy grail of heating, mass flow rate which is the relationship between flow and energy including:

• Specific heat capacity of water
• Magic Mo’s triangle

4. Velocity pipe sizing

What the difference between flow rate and velocity is how we measure and calculate velocity

The velocity triangle

• Pipe sizing
• Velocity, what is it and what it means and how to calculate
• Magic triangle

5. Pipe sizing, Pressure loss, and pump sizing

Pipe sizing, a brief overview of pressure losses, and how to calculate pump head requirements, system resistances, residual head graphs.

• Pressure loss
• Turbulent and laminar flow
• System resistance
• Index circuit
• Pump curves
• Residual head
• System curves

Round up

6. Emitter sizing

How to size your emitters (radiators) and the relevance to over or under sizing. The relevance of power and temperature.

• MW-AT-DT – What is it and where do I use it?
• Quick hand adjusters

7. Controls

What are we controlling and what are the variables that mean we need controls? What’s wrong with older methods of ‘on/off controls?
