Do 3-Speed Circulators Still Have a Place?
Presented by John Barba

With the advent of variable speed circulators, it’s been fashionable to dismiss 3-speed circulators as yesterday’s news. However, the 3-speed remains the workhorse of the industry.

In this program, you’ll learn the true benefits of 3-speed circulators and how to use them to your advantage. We will also dispel several myths about 3-speeds so that you’ll be able to apply them properly and make sure you select the right speed for each application.

ECM Essentials
Presented by Rick Mayo

Knowing which mode to use when commissioning an ECM is very important. We all understand that we should “do the math”, but at midnight in the middle of winter we just want to get the “heat back on”! It would be nice to have that circulator set up in the correct mode. 

In this program, you’ll learn about the different operating modes of ECM circulators, and how to select the mode that works best for the many different applications you’re likely to see.

Hydronic Heating Options – The heat loss is done, now what?
Presented by Dave Holdorf

Now that the heat loss was performed, how are you going to heat that space? Have you decided to use baseboard, radiant floor heating, fan coils, panel radiators or a combination? And how would you pipe it up and control it?

In this one-hour fast paced session we will explore these options, share piping and control strategies and discuss proper circulator selection for maximum performance and comfort.
