Hydronic Design Service


Mr. Audetat is one of the few original Radiant Panel Association certified designers. As an original Charter Board Member he sat on the technical committee that wrote the first US standard “RPA guidelines”. He uses Wrightsoft radiant specific CAD software to perform a heat load analysis and specify the appropriate heating, cooling and ventilation for your project. Radiant floors, walls, ceilings and European style wall-hung panel radiators make for perfect comfort in the coldest climates.

Older boiler systems


Naturally, questions pertaining to older hot water heating systems are welcome. Boilers should be serviced by a qualified “boiler technician” every year, to assure safety, reliability and optimum efficiency.


If your “gas provider” or “heating contractor” is “taking care of it” ask him for a post-service, 10 point, system check list. (20 points, if you have a condensing boiler).


Installing a properly sized condensing boiler is one of the best ways to conserve fuel and the environment and typically will cut your current fuel bill by 20 to 50%. Short of replacing your boiler with a condensing variety, having your current low-efficiency boiler cleaned and tuned by a professional using a quality combustion analyzer is the best you can do.


In addition, fuel saving controls that feature outdoor reset (a standard feature on all condensing boilers today) can lower your fuel bill by as much as 15%.
