Classic Hydronics - How To Get The Most From Those Older Hot-Water Heating Systems
Most of the buildings you go into are older than you are, right? Yeah, me too. America is a heating museum. And most of the heating systems in those older buildings have gone through lots of changes over the years, some of them painful changes. Many of these systems went in before we knew as much as we know today about hot-water heating.
So let's talk about how Classic Hydronic systems work, where they came from, how they've changed over the years, and what we can do right now to get the most of out them without spending a fortune. Oh, and I promise you a few great stories along the way because that's just the way I am, and I know you love a good story.
My goal with this 8-1/2" X 11", 154-page, spiral-bound book is to make you "see" inside those older systems, and to be able to do stuff that others say can't be done. If I can do that (and I think I can), you will be nodding your head and smiling at your newfound knowledge, and I will be in a state of bliss.
