Course Description

Panasonic, in partnership with Karwood Contracting, is undertaking an exciting new project that examines the capital and operating costs of traditional HVAC ducted system vs. a ductless air-source heat pump (ASHP) installation in a typical single storey home. Two identical designed and constructed houses will be built, the first with a traditional furnace and AC unit, and then other house will use a ductless ASHP. Capital costs of both installations will be examined, and an energy model will compare the operating costs of both houses over a 10-year period.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn about this innovative project in more detail;
  • Understand the advantages of a ductless solution compared to a traditional HVAC system;
  • Learn more about the Panasonic products involved in the project.
