Well-designed and properly installed hydronic radiant heating systems have earned a deserved reputation for superior comfort. Even so, many people hesitate on using these systems because they can’t just push a button on their thermostat to change the system from heating to cooling.
Plumbing & Mechanical columnist and Hydronics Editor John Siegenthaler will present a seminar April 2 at the Mohawk Valley Community College’s Utica Campus on using renewable energy sources such as solar thermal collectors, heat pumps and solid fuel (wood and pellet) boilers with hydronic heating systems.
I like working with the control techs in our industry. They have such a passion for their craft. If left alone, they will control or monitor everything that moves, slides, shakes or switches.
The market for wood-gasification boilers is growing in North America. Most are used in rural areas where natural gas in not available, and thus the cost of firewood is often very competitive against the alternatives of No. 2 fuel oil or propane.
