Distribution Efficiency: The Often Overlooked Advantage of Hydronics Technology

Tue. January 15| 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM | B313b

This session defines the concept of distribution efficiency. It then compares the distribution efficiency of properly designed and poorly designed hydronic systems to that of forced air and VRF systems. It shows how to create state of the art hydronic systems that maximize distribution efficiency, and how to estimate their diminuative operating cost. If you design hydronic heating or cooling systems you need to understand and apply the concept of distribution efficiency in both design and marketing.
