  • Exciting New Course In UAF’s Sustainable Energy Curriculum

UAF’s Bristol Bay Campus is offering a one-credit course on heat pumps.

Heat pump systems use the sun's energy stored in the soil, air and water for space heating and domestic hot water production in buildings. This new course presents the basics of how heat pump systems work and how they are being used in Alaska.

The course introduces physical concepts related to harvesting shallow geothermal energy, system components, common installation configurations, cost/benefit considerations and safety.

The course will be taught through the Blackboard online interface Wednesday evenings, 5:20-8 p.m., Feb. 6-March 6.

If you are interested in this course, please contact Bristol Bay Campus at 907-842-5109 for assistance with registration.
