I’m delighted to announce that I am now fully Heat Geek qualified.
The company, Heat Geek, run advanced heating design courses and are considered to be the pinnacle of practical engineering heating design. Their residential and on-line courses cover all the technical aspects of specifying, sizing and designing boilers, heat emitters, cylinder and heat pumps for domestic and commercial use. This includes whole house / building heat loss calculations done from first principles and detailed heat source design parameters such as flow rates, specific heat capacity of different media and advances controls such as weather compensation.
The qualification has underpinned much of my learning from becoming an engineer in 1985 and given me new skill and knowledge in a industry that is constantly changing and demands higher levels of technical understanding as we strive to make our heating systems carbon free and more efficient.
