Another New Online Learning Opportunity From Taco

Taco is pleased to announce the latest addition to our online educational program for members of the FloPro Team – it's a 4-part series on designing and installing Mutli-Temp, Multi-Load Hydronic Heating Systems.In this presentation, you'll learn how to best pipe, wire and control a system requiring multiple temperatures and multiple loads. You know, one of those jobs. This real world presentation gives you practical, easy to understand solutions for challenging systems. The focus is on putting together a system that is simple, understandable and repeatable, which in turn puts money in your pocket.You'll near the dynamics of primary-secondary piping for cast iron boilers, and "moose-antler" piping for modulating-condensing boilers. You'll learn how to best control different water temperatures using everything from simple tempering valves, to motorized mixing valves, to variable speed injection mixing."Multi-Temp, Multi-Load Systems" is the third addition this fall to the "Videos" section of the FLOPROTEAM website. ...

Viessmann: Replacing More Heating Systems Necessary to Reach Climate Targets

Viessmann Group, Allendorf/Germany, one of the leading international manufacturers of heating systems, says that 13.6 million old heating systems need to be replace by 2020 if Germany wants to reach its climate protection targets. To date only 600,000 heating systems are replaced every year, according to Viessmann.  A company spokesperson said the heating sector with its share of 38% of the total German energy consumption (electricity: 21%, transport: 28%, other sectors: 13%) would be given too little consideration in the climate protection debate.

Potential for Solar Thermal in Europe

The European Union and its Member States have committed themselves to achieving a 20% share of renewable energy in Europe's final energy consumption by 2020. As only three renewable sources (biomass, geothermal and solar) generate heat, it is crucial to clarify how these different sectors can contribute to the renewable energy target. A new study being released this autumn – Study of the Potential of Solar Thermal in Europe, which has come from two Austrian bodies (AEE – Institute for Sustainable Technologies and Vienna University of Technology) examines the growth that can come from solar.

Honeywell Refrigerant Helps Homeowners Convert The Sun's Heat Into Power

Organic rankine cycle using Honeywell’s 245fa refrigerant turns heat from solar panels into electricity MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Oct. 28, 2009 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its Genetron® R-245fa refrigerant is being used to help homeowners generate electricity from the sun’s heat while offsetting energy costs. Honeywell’s energy-efficient refrigerant is being used in an organic rankine cycle (ORC) called the 35Z Micro Power Plant, manufactured by Germany-based Turbolina GmbH & Co. KG. The 35Z Micro Power Plant has a unique design that uses water heated by thermal solar panels to evaporate the refrigerant, which in turn drives a turbine to generate electricity. Because no fuel is burned to create the electricity, the unit does not produce any carbon dioxide emissions. The remaining heat from the 35Z can be used to supply heating and hot water.

HVAC Control Market Poised for Growth

The Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) market, like nearly all other markets, has been significantly impacted by the economic turmoil that materialized in 2008 and accelerated through the first half of 2009.  The HVAC market enjoyed a strong 2007 and early in 2008 the market looked like it was going to enjoy another strong year, but the collapse of the US housing market and subsequent chain reaction of events made for a very difficult business climate for the remainder of 2008 and into 2009.
