Most hydronic professionals are familiar with how the availability of PEX and PEX-Al-PEX tubing rejuvenated the radiant heating market here in North America. When combined with the numerous energy saving and health benefits associated with radiant heating, these products helped the market grow over twenty fold since 1990.
However, many designers and contractors still think of PEX and PEX-Al-PEX tubing as only for use in radiant panel applications, and are not familiar with the advantages of using this tubing along with manifolds for panel radiators, baseboards, fan coils or other types of hydronic heat emitters.
This edition of idronics™ addresses state-of-the-art design techniques for applying manifold technology in a wide variety of hydronic heating (and cooling) applications. It explains why these approaches deliver both superior performance and cost effectiveness.
