Basic Geothermal Troubleshooting

Get a better understanding of how a geothermal unit operates.
This course is designed for all technicians that may need a refresher on geothermal unit troubleshooting. Understanding & calculating heat of extraction and heat of rejection will be covered to determine a geothermal heat pump’s operating condition. Both the water-side and the refrigerant cycle diagnostic procedures will be explained to quickly uncover a system malfunction. Real troubleshooting situations will be reviewed such as diagnosing TXVs, reversing valves, superheat, subcooling, low flow, lockout board, start components electrical controls and much more.

Prerequisites:

A basic understanding of the refrigerant and electrical circuits in HVAC equipment.
Class Hours: 8
Class Size: 20

Design Sizing & Software

Would You Like to Know How to Design and Size a Geothermal System?
Students will learn about Enertech Global’s products and the four basic designs of the company’s geothermal heat pumps, plus the features that are unique to each product. The focus of the course will be on the necessary procedures in selection and sizing, from the importance of the initial heat loss and heat gain to the economics of operation. Participants will gain knowledge to evaluate which type of system works best for different applications. Fundamental duct and zoning design will be discussed along with suggested minimum/maximum airflow requirements. Each attendee will work with several loop field applications by using GeoAnalyst®, Enertech’s proprietary design software. Unit information will allow the program to display comparisons to other fuels, return on investment, and the energy savings of each system. All students will receive multiple worksheets to be used in the field to aid in the design and sizing of geothermal systems. At the completion of the course, students will have confidence and direction to appropriately size and select geothermal heat pumps.

Prerequisites:

Students should have air distribution knowledge – this course does not cover basic duct design and friction loss calculations. Some electrical knowledge about power consumption & terminology is required. Students must have good basic computer skills and a laptop. Prior to class, all students must be registered on GeoAnalyst and have their user name and password.

Fusion & Flushing

What is Fusion? Is Your Mind Air-Locked About the Flushing? Enertech Will Show You the Way to Seal and Clear the Air From Your Systems.
Correct fusion of the ground loop heat exchanger connections along with proper flushing practices will help create a fault-free operating system. During this class, the student will learn proper techniques for socket and butt fusion processes and perform hands-on socket fusion. The closed-loop flushing procedure will be explained for pressurized and non-pressurized systems. Some application and loop designs will be covered. Flushing and purging practices are critical to pump life and trouble-free operation. Students will be introduced to the importance of water quality and antifreeze, as well as instruction on calculating proper amounts of antifreeze and testing freeze protection in the training session. At the end of the class, students passing the examination will be given a fusion certificate.

Prerequisites:

Student should possess knowledge of geothermal systems and be aware of safety precautions for working in trenches.

Geothermal Hydronic Systems

Trying to Keep Your Head Above Water? Let Us Help You Rise Up and Move Ahead!
The student will learn about applications for Enertech’s Water to Water and Combination Units. Complete explanations of the unique features to our product and when to apply each unit will give the student the tools needed to choose the best unit for each application. The attendees will gain knowledge of basic hydronic practices. Feet of head and pressure drop measurements will be discussed and applied to select the proper pump and verify system performance. Radiant heating and air handlers will be evaluated for the sizing of equipment for a low water temperature output. We will also explain zoning controls and buffer tank information for the various systems. Included will be a review of the actual heat pump control boards and diagnostic procedures. Learn how these applications can separate you from your local competition.

Prerequisites:

Student should have HVAC knowledge and have attended our Applied Service and Installation course.
