We recommend heat pump installers attend a manufacturer’s training in design, sizing, and installation. In addition, ICAST offers a free online training program including heat pump design, installation and maintenance, and basics of building science. Heat pump installers who complete these trainings should let us know to receive recognition on our contractor page.
