The following formula has been around the North American hydronics industry for a long time: Btuh = 500 x gpm x delta T. It can be used to estimate the rate of heat transfer into or out of a device that has a stream of water flowing through it at a known flow rate, and with a measured temperature change between the inlet and outlet of that water stream.
Some customers consider radiant heating a new and untested technology, while others categorize it as a luxury beyond what they can afford. Either way, industry leaders agree it’s time to bust these myths and introduce radiant heat to the masses
Years ago, steam heating was a business of installing complete systems and not just a business of replacing boilers and fixing problems as it is today. So, how do you get the most out of a modern steam boiler?
The Canadian Hydronics Council (CHC) will offer its Essentials of Hydronic Design course across Ontario beginning in April. The course builds on the lessons provided through the introductory hydronics course and serves as a building block of professional design and installation for both new and retrofit system components.
