Pop quiz
Test your knowledge of hydronic heating and cooling

John discusses all aspects of a modern hydronic heating and cooling system. He’ll cover available heat sources including natural gas-fired and biomass-fueled boilers and heat pumps. Learn about low temperature heat emitters, homerun distribution systems, variable speed circulators, domestic water heating, modern controls, and zoning methods. Finally, John will show you how these building blocks can form complete systems that can provide both heating and cooling.
