Cold Climate Heat Pump Training
The Sponsors of Mass Save have developed courses that focus in on cold climate heat pumps including their capabilities, in-home performance, comfort, and affordability. These courses have real world examples and content that shows installed systems both on-site and outside of the lab. The courses also cover best practices which will help prevent unwanted callbacks:

measureQuick (mQ) is a connected system of tools, services, and technology to grow your business all through a mobile application. Through the Mass Save Energy Efficiency Learning Center, the Sponsors of Mass Save® offer a 5-hour contractor training that focuses on two testing procedures: Air Flow and Refrigerant Charge for central heat pumps. These procedures can also apply to mini-split systems for single and multi-head mini split heat pumps. These testing procedures verify that central heat pump and mini-split heat systems are commissioned properly and are in good running condition. Systems that are properly commissioned have improved efficiency and create increased comfort and savings for homeowners.
The training then zeroes in on all the useful functions of the mQ app and how it can be used. Contractors are trained to perform these testing procedures to ensure proper installation and operation of equipment and systems, which gives your company a real edge on the competition by providing better service to your customers.
In addition to other benefits of participating in the Heat Pump Installer Network, completing measureQuick training makes contractors eligible to receive incentives for installation and verification work as well as reimbursements for training and diagnostic tool purchases. Incentives include:
- $130 for measureQuick (mQ) submissions
- $250 for downsizing
- $2CFM (max $600) for duct sealing.
