“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” – Leonardo da Vinci
These days, energy conservation is on everyone’s mind. From cost savings to environmental concerns, there are many well-known benefits to conserving energy. But understanding exactly how to do so can be confusing. In order to conserve energy, you must know precisely how much energy you are using.
There are many different methods and tools that can be used to measure your energy consumption, depending on your application. In this post, we will focus on thermal energy measurement and management in hydronic systems. In keeping true to Da Vinci’s quote, we will keep our explanation as simple and straightforward as possible.
Dwyer Instruments, Inc. was recognized for excellence in product design in the 16th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News Magazine (The ACHR News).

I often get asked, how should one simplify the hydronic balancing process? Since system blueprints will specify exactly where to set the balancing valves on the hydronic system to achieve proportional flow, it may seem simple enough for an installing contractor to determine the pressure drop through each circuit; however, hydronic systems are rarely installed exactly as designed. Continue reading “Work Smarter, Not Harder. Hydronic Balancing Simplified.”
