This presentation is used for a full day design-focused workshop that examines best practices for combining modern, high efficiency wood-fired boilers with hydronic distribution systems. It covers the operating characteristics of wood-gasification boilers, pellet-fired boilers, and wood-chip boilers and the latest hydronic heating technology that can complement these high efficiency heat sources. The hydronic topics covered include low temperature heat emitters, high efficiency circulators, modern control techniques, and options for water-based thermal storage.
Developed for NY contractors in partnership with John Siegenthaler and Appropriate Designs, this workshop fulfills contractor training requirements to participate in NYSERDA's 'Renewable Heat NY' program.
