Bosch donates heat pump system to technical school
Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. contributed a 5-ton inverter ducted split system condensing unit and air handler to the HVAC lab at Atlantic Technical College’s Coconut Creek, Florida, campus in September.
Brian Youngblood, certified master HVACR educator at the campus, said the system will be used for training HVAC students in its air conditioning, refrigeration and heating technology program.
“We currently have 36 full-time adult students and five dual-enrolled part-time high school students (from outside school) in the morning class, and two part-time Magnet high school students (from our high school) in the afternoon class,” Youngblood said. “Our two afternoon Magnet high school senior students have just completed the installation of the equipment on a rolling/portable trainer, and they are currently building ductwork. The system will be a great tool in our classroom for training future HVACR technicians, especially in this system’s modern electronic control systems.”
Brian Murphy, side manager at Bosch’s Fort Lauderdale facility, said he’s happy to provide a modern system the technical school.
“Students of today will be installing and maintaining the HVAC systems of tomorrow,” Murphy said.
