10 Common Errors with Hydronic Heating and Cooling Systems - and How to Avoid Them

Hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems have been proven as an effective strategy for reducing building energy usage while maintaining optimum thermal occupant comfort.  This seminar will cover some of the most common pitfalls and challenges seen from the design through construction and commissioning phases of residential and commercial projects so that today's practitioners can design and install more effective and efficient systems that meet the needs and expectations of the clients.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Attendees will gain an understanding of typical heating and cooling capacities that can be expected from a radiant systems, as well as the factors that impact capacities.
  2. Attendees will gain an understanding of typical construction methods.
  3. Attendees will review the most common coordination issues that occur and learn how to avoid them on a project.
  4. Attendees will gain an understanding of different ways to properly control radiant systems to avoid comfort issues and surface condensation.
