Air-source heat pumps (ASHPs) have been in US homes for decades. However, the latest technology has increased their appeal and market share in colder regions. While interest grows regarding benefits ASHPs can bring to cold climate regions, there is concern over diminished performance when improperly designed, installed, and operated, despite proven performance in cold climate lab conditions. The Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP), with DOE support, recently published guides for selection, design, and installation of cold climate ASHPs. Attend this session to learn about these new resources, as well as other cold-climate heat pump projects and lessons learned.
