This course provides an in-depth look at how heat pumps work and how each of their components operate in tandem. It will consist of an electrical systems program, a refrigeration and air flow program, and an electric furnace program.
The electrical systems program will teach students about a heat pump’s electrical components. This will also teach students how to utilize a heat pump’s schematic diagrams when troubleshooting.
This course’s refrigeration and air flow program will address the heat pump’s heating and cooling modes. It will explain how a heat pump’s reverse valve functions in both modes, and how to use the manufacturer’s charging charts as a reference when evaluating the equipment’s operations.
The electric furnace program will cover all components found in the indoor air handler of a split system heat pump, including supplemental heat strips, sequencers, and protective devices. By familiarizing students with these components, they will be able to identify the source of malfunctions and know how to replace the failed components.
A training video and an accompanying self-print resource guide are used in this course.
Students who complete this course will receive an Employment Ready Certificate.
