Energy Efficient and Sustainable Building Products

Tuesday, April 24th -- 9:00 am - 4:45 pm

Lunch included - Members $25 -- Guests $50 pp


6.5 AIA Learning units(5 SD/ 6 HSW)



Presented by:Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the Consulate General of Canada in Miami, in collaboration with the AIA Tampa Bay Chapter and the USGBC Florida Coast Chapter cordially invite you to attend a Continuing Education (CE) Seminar.  The seminars will focus on products that can be used in Green, Sustainable and LEED certified building projects for commercial and residential purposes. 


Hybrid Heat Pump Systems - Energy Efficient Comfort Solutions


Speaker: Mr. Raoul Gautreau, CGC

The objective is to study a system  that combines a Water Source Heat Pump System and a Fan coil system  on the same two pipe loop.  We will examine a hybrid water source heat pump system that doesn’t operate the compressors in the heating mode. Instead it absorbs the fluid heat directly from the fluid loop with hydronic  coils . The energy benefits will be demonstrated along with  “ fuel switching”.. the process of  transferring the compressor heat to the boiler plant where a lower cost fuel source can be used. The economic benefits of fuel switching will be discussed.

10:10 am - 11:10 am
