I wrote this book for people who prefer plain-English explanations of how things work. You won’t find much math in this book. No formulas. No mumbo-jumbo. What you will find are simple words of ordinary conversation, and a lot of very easy-to-follow drawings relating to hydronic radiant heating. There are also stories – lots of them! I like to tell stories about the things I’ve seen as I’ve traveled around the US, Canada and Europe, looking at hydronic radiant installations. I’ve seen installers do things the right way and the wrong way, and I learned from them all. I dug into old books as well as the current literature to write this one, and I did my very best to boil down the engineering into understandable terms. This book contains 215 pages of practical, common sense information that you can use right away. I’ve made lots of analogies to things you already know. Hydronic radiant heating doesn’t have to be complicated or spooky. There are rules of thumb that work, and installers are using them with great success every day. There are simple ways to install and control these systems. I’ll show you how. All in all, you’re going to find straight answers to direct questions in this book. I’ve done my best to present a subject that I love in a way that I think you will find both informative and very enjoyable. ....read more

ECOSMART 18 Electric Tankless Water Heater for Radiant

December 26th, 2015

ECORAD18
ECO RADIANT 18
$439.00
This Smart Technology electric tankless water heater is configured for climates where incoming water temperature is 62°F and above. The ECO 18 is capable of heating over 2.5 gallons per minute, which is the equivalent of one shower head and one sink. Two showers can be run simultaneously when incoming water temperature is above 70°F. Hot Water (Hydronic) Radiant Floors - Hydronic (liquid) systems are the most popular and cost-effective radiant heating systems for heating-dominated climates. All radiant heating types and systems require an energy source. Traditionally, these sources were standard electric, gas, or oil fired boilers, wood-fired boilers, solar water heaters. Ecosmart electric tankless water heaters are 99.8% efficient making them the most efficient energy source for radiant heating. Ecosmart's heaters are able to operate on closed loop systems because the exclusive self-modulating technology reads the inlet water temperature, flow rate and output setting to calculate the amount of energy needed to heat the given demand. Eliminating the need to keep a large tank or boiler continuously hot, Ecosmart tankless water heaters provide endless hot water on demand. Prior to purchase and installation please verify this model is the rights size for your hot water needs and electrical requirements.
