Weil-McLain®, a leading designer and manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, has launched its 2016 School of Better Heating training program.
Bosch Thermotechnology’s Greenstar gas condensing boiler for residential applications is now available in a floor standing version for all eight regular (heat) and combi (heat+hot water) models: regular heat only models 57, 79, 100, 131, 151 MBtuh inputs and combi heat+hot water 100, 131, 151 MBtuh inputs.
With the heating season in full force, it is a good time to review best practices in heating troubleshooting. This article covers boilers. The following information is a summarized section from HVAC Troubleshooting, a guide book published by BSRIA, a test, instruments, research, and consultancy organization headquartered in the UK.
Intelligent controls built into the McDonnell & Miller RBT-3000 low-water cut-off and fuel economizer bring advanced microprocessor technology to virtually any existing boiler, automatically adjusting water temperature based on heat load and without the need for an outdoor sensor.
The domestic hot-water indirect storage tank lines WST and SST offer plumbing and HVAC professionals simplified installation and superior durability, which ensures fewer callbacks while providing end users years of reliable operation, the company said.
For use with the gas-fired boiler products — KC 1000, all Benchmark, and Modulex boilers — the AERCO Control System (ACS) provides the contractor with the key component to sell a complete combination system consisting of AERCO boilers, SmartPlate, and Buffer Tank, said the manufacturer.
This article takes a look at three special projects that involved hydronic heating and how each contractor solved his client’s problem by choosing the proper design and equipment for each job — and how these jobs may give other HVAC contractors some insight into how they can sell wet heat to their own clients.
