A interactive day-long workshop exploring optimizing of heating systems in a “whole systems”,building science-based approach in the context of examples in existing and new buildings. Discussion will include conversion of steam systems to hydronic operation, condensing gas-fired boilers, air & ground-source heat pumps, pellet-fired boilers, solar space heating, radiant floors, and panel radiators, heat recovery and much more. Instructor has specializing in energy engineering for 30 years, is a state-wide energy adviser for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and is an active member and past board member of the Northeast Sustainable Energy.Association.   Overview of Systems to be Covered: Condensing boilers Air-source heat pumps Ground-source heat pumps Pellet-fired boilers Solar-assisted space heating Condensing vs. Traditional Systems: Why condense and how to optimize condensing heating performance The importance of resetting water temperatures based upon load Right-sizing and condensing operation The value of a high turn-down ratio Parallel cascading operation vs lead-lag operation Report on study results of published study (by others) of field performance of condensing boilers Lessons learned from field study performance Design Scenarios and Discussion: Retrofitting an existing hot air furnace systemDesigning a hydronic system for new construction Retrofitting an existing steam system Retrofitting with pellet-fired boiler systems Heat Pumps: How they work COP (coefficient of performance) Performance in cold climates Air-source and ground-source heat pumps Air-to-air, water-to-air, and water-to-water Systems Split systems, mini-splits, and ducted systems Ground-Source Heat Pump Case Study: Borehole field Water to air heat pumps Temperature controls and scheduling Lessons learned Air-Source Heat Pump Case Study: Outdoor condenser Indoor terminal equipment Temperature controls and scheduling Lessons learned Solar-Assisted Space Heating: New construction Rooftop solar thermal panels Radiant floor heat delivery system Hot water storage tank Lessons learned Round Up and Review
