This FREE webinar will focus on the findings of the completed final reports from the evaluation of two recent projects on the topics of Air-Source Heat Pumps and Gas Heat Pumps.

Project 1. Evaluation of a Gas Absorption Heat Pump
This project analyzed the operation of an air-to-water gas absorption heat pump installed at the Archetype Sustainable House in Vaughan, Ontario, over the 2017 cooling season and 2017/2018 heating season. The primary goal of the research was to create a detailed map of the heat pump’s performance across the range of outdoor conditions experienced in a Canadian climate such that energy, cost, and carbon reductions associated with the heat pump could be estimated.

Project 2. Ductless Heat Pump Retrofits in Electrically Heated Multi-Unit Residential Buildings
Electric baseboards are the main heating source for 24% of all multi-unit residential building (MURB) and rowhouse units in Ontario. In this sector, heat pump retrofits represent a significant opportunity to conserve electricity, reduce carbon emissions and reduce operating costs, while simultaneously promoting tenant comfort and safety. This case study evaluated the performance of ductless multi-split air-source heat pump retrofits in a rowhouse complex located in Brantford, Ontario, during 2017/2018.
