Installing air handling unit with heat pump: how easy can it be?

If you install an air handling unit with heat pump, you have to deal with the Building Code. As you know, this sets specific requirements for air quality, ventilation and energy performance standards. Of course, it is also important that a building is comfortable and healthy for its users. Especially in utility buildings such as offices, sports halls, care centers, schools, where many people come together. As an installer, you face a number of challenges in this regard. Installations are becoming more sophisticated and in most cases you need an F-gases diploma.

Besides: in these times of severe labor shortages, of course, you just have to have "the hands" to execute your project quickly and efficiënt. STULZ solves all these challenges in one fell swoop with the ClimaPac Compact. An air handling unit with heat pump: 'plug and play'. Integrated. In one prefabricated solution.

Complex technology
Air handling and heat pump systems are becoming increasingly technically complex. With the integration of advanced control systems, energy-efficient components and complex heat recovery techniques, installation is not getting any easier. It is not for nothing that almost all manufacturers of air handling and heat pump systems now have their own education and training facilities to train and retrain installers for these types of systems. Technological advances require you as an installer to become increasingly knowledgeable and skilled for optimal performance of the systems you work with.

If you install an air handling unit with heat pump and do not use natural refrigerants, then as an installer you need an F-gases certificate. For your company itself (BRL-100 certificate), but also for the mechanics who work with the F-gases (BRL-200 certificate). This costs money and time and requires regular refresher training, as technology and regulations are constantly evolving.

Labor market tightness
It has probably not escaped your notice that it is difficult to find experienced installers who can install air handling units and heat pumps. The huge shortage of well-trained professionals plays a major role in this. And as if that weren't enough, the growing complexity of installations makes it even more difficult. In addition, certifications such as the F-gases diploma create additional hurdles in attracting personnel.

And yet there are wonderful opportunities for you as an installer ...
Complex technology, certification requirements for F-gases and a tight labor market. If you're an HVAC installer who regularly gets requests to install air handlers with heat pumps on your plate, you have a challenge. If you're a W installer considering getting into it for the first time, it might even be a reason not to get into it. While there are wonderful opportunities when you look at the huge market demand.
