ELCO provides heat pump CPD module

Leading manufacturer of commercial heating products ELCO Heating Solutions has introduced a new CIBSE-approved CPD module.

The new CPD introduces heat pump technology and focuses on how to effectively apply it to commercial projects.

By reviewing the basic principles governing the vapour compression cycle and its inherent limitations, the CPD outlines how best to apply heat pump technology to a system.

The presentation also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of commonly used refrigerants, while evaluating example schematics for new and existing commercial heating systems, with and without domestic hot water preparation.

Commenting on the new CPD, UK specification manager Mark Ferris said: “Due to climate change and essential government directives, the reasons to utilise heat pump technology in commercial applications have become more compelling than ever. As an established manufacturer of heating technology, ELCO is able to highlight the inherent benefits of this renewable technology, as well as reflect on how to utilise it alongside modern condensing boilers, if required.

“Of course, as with any commercial project, performance on paper is not always reflected in a practical setting, so careful system design and commissioning are essential – and this CPD module is designed to assist engineers in delivering the best possible heat pump-led system for their clients.”

The 60-minute module can be accessed through a web-based booking system at www.elco.co.uk/cpd
