ARLINGTON, Va. - The Hydronics Industry Alliance (HIA) has announced the completion of its Website, myhomeheating.com. The HIA has launched two new major sections on its site: a section specifically for architects and engineers, and a section for homebuilders and remodelers. The Website already had individualized sections for consumers/homeowners and HVAC and plumbing contractors.

According to HIA, now architects, engineers, builders, and remodelers have a useful and informative reference for the installation and uses of hydronic heating. The Website details the benefits and applications of hydronic heating and answers frequently asked questions.

The Hydronics Industry Alliance, chaired by Richard Simons, director, residential combustion controls, Honeywell International, is a coalition of members of the Hydronics Institute Division of GAMA – an association of appliance and equipment manufacturers. Twenty-nine companies have joined together to increase industry and consumer awareness of the latest technological advances in hydronic home heating.

“Now builders, architects, and engineers have a home base for practical, easy-to-access, and up-to-date information on hydronic heating,” said Simons. “These new Website sections are especially designed for builders, architects, and installers who are interested in hydronic heating and want to know more about how to get started with it. At myhomeheating.com they can find out what to do, who to talk to, where to get detailed information, and how to work easily and effectively with hydronic heating the very first time. However, even though all the sections for myhomeheating.com are now posted, we will continually update the Website to keep current with new industry developments. For example, we soon plan to add a ‘Hydronic Heating Resources’ section.”

The two new sections of myhomeheating.com provide:

• Clear explanations of the many types of hydronic heating delivery systems;

• How to incorporate domestic hot water into a hydronic heating system;

• How air conditioning and hydronic heating can smoothly work together;

• Where to find optimal air conditioning systems for use with hydronic heating;

• How to assure a successful hydronic heating installation;

• How to use proper design and planning to eliminate potential problems;

• Access to an extensive library of hydronic heating books, publications, and CDs;

• Where to find qualified hydronic heating professionals;

• The economics of hydronic heating for builders;

• Case histories of successful hydronic installations;

• How a builder can get started with hydronic heating; and

• What builders should ask hydronic heating installers before working with them.
