SDGBC webinar: Design Considerations for Heat Pumps

May 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Design Considerations for Heat Pumps in Single and Multi-family Buildings

As the need to decarbonize the buildings that we live and work in becomes critical, heat pumps (HPs) are going to play a central role in this effort.  In this session we will discuss design considerations for HP installation for both space and domestic water heating.  The presenters will go into detail about these considerations for both Multi and Single family buildings and commercial building applications including existing building retrofits using case studies of local projects showcasing the designs being discussed


  • Discuss why heat pump technology is vital to decarbonize buildings
  • Discuss different heat pump technologies and how different technologies are suited to different building types.
  • Identify energy efficiency opportunities and other benefits of heat pumps
  • Discuss Heat Pump design considerations including the following:
    • Location
    • Sizing
    • Types
    • Building loads
    • Electrical panel limitations
  • Presenters will discuss local case studies that showcase the design considerations above
