Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings

  • LEVEL 3

Course Overview

This qualification has been designed with the CIPHE and the Heat Pump Association with the help of their members to meet the need for heating systems to be designed with a low temperature aim from the outset to maximize efficiency of the system.

The course price quoted (above) includes assessment and certification and is VAT exempt.

This course will be delivered on the following dates:
Mon 08/01/2024 and Tues 09/01/2024

The objective of this qualification is for learners to be up-skilled to the concept of low temperature heating systems. It will allow them to demonstrate their knowledge and understand the need and requirements for installing low temperature heating and hot water systems in dwellings.

The qualification is aimed primarily at practicing plumbers and heating engineers who already have an understanding of the fundamental requirements of central heating systems and who wish to design and install energy efficient low temperature hot water heating systems that may use heat pumps as the heat source.

Participants will gain an understanding the importance for the correct calculation of heat loss from a dwelling when low temperature hot water heating systems are being specified and installed and how to design low temperature heating systems for dwellings that use low temperature and/or low carbon heat sources.

The course module covers:
– Know the latest industry standards and regulatory framework relating to heating design
– Know the requirements for undertaking a room by room heat loss for a property
– Know how to correctly size heat emitters for low temperature heating systems
– Know how to correctly size pumps and pipework
– Know how to correctly size a domestic hot water system
– Know the basic design principles of system configurations
