Beyond HFCs: Refrigerant Management in Design, Construction, and Operations - CT

Commercial Track

2 hours
AIA/BPI/NATE CEUs available

Description:
Significant greenhouse gasses are commonly used as refrigerants in most heat pump technologies, thus contributing to global warming when leaked into the atmosphere. Management of these gases are therefore crucial when designing and operating a net zero building. This module focuses on refrigerant management and the considerations that need to be made during design, commissioning, and daily operation. Topics Include:

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this module attendees will be able to understand:

  • The history and impact of refrigerants, including the GWP of commonly used ones
  • Refrigerant based high-performance systems (both packaged and field-piped)
  • Refrigerant management considerations in design, installation, commissioning, and operations
  • The advantages and disadvantages of refrigerants on the horizon
  • Understand the importance of future proofing in accordance with regulations to reduce environmental impact
