Air source heat pump best practices - From retrofit to new construction

Consumer interest in air source heat pumps (ASHPs) is growing rapidly, especially interest in the highly efficient variable capacity mini- and multi-split (“ductless”) systems. While sales are exponentially growing, there are still many misconceptions around this technology across the industry. This session aims to bridge that knowledge gap and address a broad set of topics that include:

  • Current misconceptions
  • Industry trends
  • Diverse and flexible applications in retrofit scenarios
  • Consumer interest in whole home solutions
  • Strategies in high performance homes. 

In this session, attendees will also learn how to properly design a variable capacity ASHP system for cold climate applications. While the focus will be on single-family residential applications, multifamily and light commercial ASHP systems will also be discussed.

This is a breakout session for the 2022 Xcel Energy Trade Ally Virtual Meeting. If you are interested in learning more, click here:
