Morrisville State College's Renewable Energy Training Center (RETC) is offering two seminars on geothermal heat pump systems.
Fundamentals of Closed-loop Geothermal Heat Pump Systems will be held Sept. 22 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. This seminar covers the fundamentals of geothermal heat pump technology and will include discussions on water-to-air, water-to-water, and direct expansion heat pumps and ways to apply them in both forced air and hydronic systems.
Advanced Applications of Closed-loop Geothermal Heat Pump Systems will be held Sept. 23 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Participants will learn about applications of multiple geothermal heat pump systems in large residential or commercial/industrial applications, and solar supplemented systems.
Both workshops will be presented by John Siegenthaler, P.E., a licensed professional engineer with more than 30 years of experience in designing hydronic systems.
Tuition for each seminar is $300. Scholarships are available to offset costs. The RETC is located in Shannon Hall.
Participants who successfully complete the courses will earn 7 PDH and .7 CEU.
