MEDINA, OHIO — Ohio is one of the leading states for geothermal installations. That’s why Wolff Bros. Supply Inc., an HVAC distributorship here will host a hands-on, multi-station outdoor workshop and training arena for its HVAC, geothermal and drilling customers.
The “big tent” event takes place Tuesday, Sept. 11 at Wolff Bros. Supply in Medina. The event will include hands-on workshops for geo introduction, directional boring, vertical drilling, horizontal loop and pond loop applications, load-sizing and geo equipment expertise.
Event hosts expect to draw more than 200 professional attendees from Ohio, western Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia and Michigan.
On Sept. 11, registration and breakfast will be held from 8:30-9:00 AM, and then group station breakouts take place from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Six key, hands-on workstations for attendees are provided in 50-minute intervals.
“We make sure that attendees are given hands-on experience with many different facets of geothermal technology and application, focusing on the latest technology and all varieties and types of geoexchange — the process of harvesting BTUs from the ground or a body of water,” said Wolff Bros. Supply HVAC Sales Manager Dave Chenowith.
Attendees will also learn about ClimateMaster’s loop design software, GeoDesigner. The program is a sophisticated yet intuitive tool for sizing units and exchange fields. The software also helps to demonstrate operating costs for potential customers.
This class is certified by the State of Ohio for 7 Continuing Education credits. The event costs $150/person. This fee includes breakfast, lunch and dinner with beverages. To RSVP or for more information, contact Mary Roche at Wolff Bros. Supply, 330/764-3361.
