Welcome to the BCxA Southwest Chapter. This Chapter is made up of over 60 members within 6 states, including Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Utah. Our members are comprised of commissioning providers, building owners, and contractors who promote the whole building commissioning approach according to BCxA Essential Attributes. The Southwest Chapter of BCxA was created in 2004. The focus of the chapter is to connect our members to promote and protect the attributes of the commissioning process.

On April 20th, Cary Smith from Sound Geothermal has graciously accepted to present on geothermal technology for the chapter. Please join the southwest chapter board for this hour presentation which will include a Q&A session at the end. (Teams Link Below)
As clients are looking to achieve their goals of being carbon neutral, how can we discuss unique ways that allows them to think outside the box.
For those that are unable to join, we will get a link to the recording on the Chapter Website afterwards.
Ground Source Heat Pumps - Homes to City: The Evolution of an Earth-based Thermal Delivery and Storage System
Heat pumps are one of the few technologies that can have an efficiency coefficient greater than 1 (100%). How is this possible? Is it an evolving technology that can eliminate or minimize combustion of fossil fuels in our cities? Is it the “Reliable Renewable”?
This presentation will take a simplified look at the Codes & Standards, design challenges, and science behind an evolving technology that may provide a heating and cooling system with little or no on-site combustion. In addition, we will look at advanced applications that are capable of heating and cooling cities, use conventional and renewable technologies to harvest, store, and reuse typically wasted energy, and store that energy in an evolving low-temperature geothermal thermal battery.
Let’s take a look at how we can use these systems to provide a cleaner environment including improving air quality.
