Dan King, Owner of Reno James Engineering, joins us for episode 298 of Art of Construction.
Whether you like it or not, electrification of buildings is happening and is currently a major trend in the industry; it is not going away. The press likes to cover the push towards EV charging stations, electric ranges, and electric water heaters; however, the big emphasis will be the change to heat pump HVAC systems. Any heat pump pessimist should study its coefficient of performance (COP); helping building owners get more bang for their buck.
