Richardson’s Plumbing and Heating, Inc., a contractor based in Shreveport-Bossier, LA, has now completed its first international project.

Leaking radiant panel valves had become an expensive maintenance problem for the Five Points Plaza building in Atlanta. Replacing the radiant ceiling system with a VAV system could solve that problem, but the available ductwork could not be enlarged due to structural constraints and, as a result, the VAV terminals had to be low pressure. Therma-Fuser™ VAV diffusers by Acutherm (New York) filled that need and, in addition, gave the building individual temperature control and a system with low maintenance.
