Many industry experts consider ECM-based circulators one of the major advancements in hydronics technology over the last two decades. And with good reason as the advanced technology provides much greater efficiency for heating and cooling systems.
The reason I bring this up is that last week with help and coordination from one of our media partners, we hosted a webinar entitled,
Moderated by industry guru John Siegenthaler, the seminar explored ECM-based circulators and compared these new circulators to standard circulators from the standpoint of technical performance, operating characteristics, and life cycle operating cost. We discussed the optimal application of ECM circulators within residential and light commercial systems, and identified some novel applications for which they are ideally suited. The webinar concluded with rationale for why the future of small hydronic circulators will be based on ECM technology.
What also made this webinar especially valuable is that John provided great insight from the perspective of an engineer with over 25 years of experience in designing modern hydronic heating systems. He is also the author of the text Modern Hydronic Heating, and writes for several other industry publications dealing with hydronic heating, including Plumbing & Mechanical, PM Engineer and Heating Piping & Air Conditioning.
If you were not able to join us, you can still gain access to the archived webinar registering here. For many of us in the building services industry, webinars have become a great way to gain technical knowledge on specific topics without ever needing to leave the office, as well as a convenient way to earn industry educational accreditation.
