Deep Dive Into Warm Water: Electrify Water Heating in Passive House Construction

November 18, 2020, 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Sean Armstrong has led the Zero Net Energy design of more than 100 all-electric, Energy Star and Passive House multifamily developments, and brings a wealth of practical knowledge to share with you from 25 years in the field.

The focus of this presentation is the challenge of integrating heat pump water heaters into cold climate, Passive House homes and high rises, with case studies and discussion of available and soon-to-market products. Related water heating conservation measures–3/8″ piping, pipe-in-a-pipe insulation, manifold vs. trunk-and-branch–will be briefly discussed for those with interest in delivery system best practices, but this presentation is intended to help Passive House designers get rid of that last fossil fuel load without having to pioneer the design strategies.
