What you will learn
** This 4-day certification program explores how to design basic residential in-floor radiant hydronic heating systems. HRAI strongly recommends individuals attending this course have prior knowledge of Residential Heat Loss & Heat Gain Calculations and experience in calculating friction losses in ducts or pipes.
The student will learn the fundamentals of radiant heating systems:
- system components (such as circulators, manifolds, valves, gauges, and controls) and how they influence system design
- zoning including radiant loop size and configuration
- tubing size and spacing
- how to convert heat load calculations into fluid temperatures and flow rates
- heat transfer through various common building materials and floor coverings
THE BEST PART: The residential radiant hydronics system design methodology that is covered in this course is recognized as a good engineering practice in provincial/national building codes. This course will be invaluable to persons designing hot water radiant heating systems in residential buildings.
