Hosted by Wolseley of Canada. Four days of study on thermal comfort, fundamentals of hydronics and radiant floor heating designs for residential systems. For those working on their RHWDT certification or wanting to expand their knowledge on hydronic systems. It is highly recommended that students have experience in heat loss and calculating differential pressures in duct or piping systems.
Week of Mar. 26th – Calgary
A three hour candid discussion on radiant cooling and heating: The Do’s and “Do-not-do” in commercial design and installations ( a joint presentation with Peter Simmonds, Ph.D., ASHRAE Fellow and DL, Head of the Advanced Technology Group, IBE Consulting Engineers ).
Week of April 9th - Las Vegas
The Ultimate Hydronics Learning Experience
Join Us in Providence in September 2012Join the nation's leading radiant and hydronics professionals for two days of learning, sharing, and idea generating at the brand new Hydronics Roundtable. Whether you are a seasoned radiant veteran or new to the field, you won't find a more useful, friendly, and engaging program anywhere else -- because it was truly created by contractors, for contractors! Check out the amazing speaker lineup.
and How To Do Radiant
Cooling in High Humidity
Humidity is supposed to be managed by the HVAC system to control pathogens (bacteria, viruses) and allergens (molds and dust mites); and to promote respiratory and thermal comfort for occupants; and for the dimensional stability in hygroscopic materials like wood. Hear the how and why Robert Bean says these are the reasons why the condensation argument on radiant cooling panels doesn’t hold water in high humidity geographies.
Simplified Control And Piping Strategies For Reversible Radiant Cooling And Heating Systems (09/12, 9:30am)
Got a hot customer who is cold or a cold customer who is hot? You’ve likely found an effective way to ruin a perfectly good day. Preventing thermal cross contamination and job site migraines is possible with simple strategies but it takes some number crunching and knowledge of the hydraulics of hydronics. Robert will introduce a very simple four pipe/two pipe heat/cool radiant strategy with dedicated outdoor air for making you and your customers radiantly happy and comfortable.
