Ramping Up System Performance [Hydronics]

Heating, Plumbing, Air Conditioning, Aug. 2014, by Mark Norris.

"How do you determine the efficiency of the heating system that you are recommending to a customer? It is an important question that comes up regularly, but there is no simple answer. The simple answer would be the published boiler efficiency, right? Simple, maybe, but probably not correct because the published efficiencies will rarely be an accurate representation of real system efficiency."

Wood-Pellet-Fired Boilers Provide Highly Efficient, No-Fuss Operation

Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering, June 2014, by Dan Vastyan.

"The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR)...wanted a district hydronic heating system fired by a renewable fuel—ideally, wood for its Resource Management Center—in Weiser State Forest in eastern Pennsylvania.

After reviewing several proposals, the DCNR chose a solution offered by ATI Systems Inc., a hybrid representative/distributor/engineering-services organization based in Conestoga, Pa., whose founder, Carl Longenecker, has found a way to burn wood automatically at near-condensing efficiencies with an air-friendly emissions profile vastly beyond traditional wood and coal burners

Being Radiant: Planning In-Slab Hydronic Heating and Cooling

The Construction Specifier, June 2014, by Ryan Westlund.

"Radiant systems are ideally suited to a broad range of commercial applications and achieve best results when combined with other energy-efficient solutions in tight building structures. While radiant heating-only systems have a long history in conditioning both commercial and residential structures, radiant cooling is fairly new to North America. Early adopters of these systems were located primarily in arid regions. Mainstream acceptance required the development of more advanced controls, coupled with compelling evidence of reduced energy consumption for the built environment."
