“Heat Pumps for Passive Houses: Installation Practices & Duct Design”
Split-system, ducted heat pumps are a common equipment selection for heating/cooling Passive Houses in North America. In order to help assure these heat pumps perform as intended, design teams should familiarize themselves with manufacturer-recommended installation practices, as well as fundamentals of quality duct design, register selection and airflow commissioning practices.
John Bart (Mitsubishi Electric U.S.) will introduce recommended installation practices for both “single-split” and “multi-split” heat pump systems. These practices will be applicable to both ducted and ductless systems.
John Semmelhack (Think Little) will provide an introduction to designing energy-efficient, quiet and comfortable ducted distribution systems. While the focus of the presentations will be on single-family residential housing, most of the core concepts will also be applicable to multi-family and commercial buildings.
