Monitoring Heat Pump Efficiency in Cold Climates

In collaboration with RDH Building Science and Fortis BC, SMT provided sensors and instrumentation assistance for a unique study of Heat Pump performance in cold climates. It was a fascinating study that we were thrilled to be a part of, and demonstrates the value of using real-world monitoring to verify the performance of components compared to their data sheets.
