The objective of the study is to compare the different perfor mance and economic characteristics of water heating systems to inform builder, contractor, and homeowner decision s on water-heater s election.
This on-demand, online course is self-paced and features a pre-recorded narrative that servesa s the instructor.
Traditional furnaces andb oilers, high efficiency models, heat pumps (both air-source andground-source), and even dual-fuel systems are all options.
Sort ing o ut the best choice for a home, or location, requires taking a close look at system costs, efficiency levels, energy rates, c omfort l evels and the severity of the climate and any applicable incentives including tax credits.
At least 8 of 10 questions must be answered correctly to earn credit for the learning unit.
Start-to-finish this course should take between 75 and 85 minutes to complete.
Please note that we do not recommend using these courses if your credential maintenance deadline is near because some of them can be time consuming to register for and complete, and they are not “LEED Specific”.
If you need your GBCI Continuing Education hours fast or are not limited by a budget, we would highly recommend our CE Packages that are designed to save you a lot of time and meet the “LEED Specific” requirements you need.
