Common Errors in Hydronic System Design & Installation
This session surveys a wide range of errors that occur in residential and light commercial hydronic heating and cooling systems. It will present each error, explain why it’s incorrect, and show you one or more methods for avoiding or correcting that error. This approach of showing what not to do has proven to be popular and effective learning experience. If you’ve designed or installed hydronic systems that didn’t perform as expected, this session will likely show you what lies at the heart of the problem. It’s OK to make errors. It’s not OK to repeat them. Come to PM Live this January to learn how to get it right the first time.
