Anyone can put together a bunch of parts and call it a hydronic heating system. But are those parts and pieces selected properly and being used as they were intended? In this session, we will review the decision process, the design process, and the parameters that need to be met. This course is also recognized as one of the NORA Gold Programs.

We will cover but not limit ourselves to:

  • •   Types of heat transfer and emitters
  • •   Hydronic system components, what goes where and why
  • •   You’ve got to “Do the Math”
  • •   Boiler size
  • •   Pipe size
  • •   Circulators and more
  • •   Review the different ways for near boiler piping
  • •   And controls

Registration fees includes the following complimentary items: Lunch & NORA Hydronics Manual
