BURR RIDGE, Ill. — Weil-McLain®, a leading North American designer and manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, announced its 2017 School of Better Heating training program. The School of Better Heating is an annual series of comprehensive, personalized training seminars for plumbing and heating professionals.

The one- to three-day sessions feature classes ranging from basic heat loss and boiler sizing to troubleshooting a multiple boiler, three temperature system. Heating professionals choose which sessions to attend based on their level of experience.

“Our theme this year is ‘Complete Hydronics System,’ and we developed the 2017 School of Better Heating curriculum to encompass a three-stage full hydronics system program that includes intermediate and advanced system design and troubleshooting,” said Greg Pickens, director of training for Weil-McLain. “Our training this year goes beyond covering the boiler and the circulator to include the entire system.

“We adjusted the program this year based on feedback from previous years and multiple interviews with different groups of heating professionals. We want to make sure that we are providing the right training for the right audience at the right time,” said Pickens.

The 2017 School of Better Heating training schedule kicks off in Philadelphia on March 28 and will continue through October at various locations in the Eastern and Central regions of the country, including:
