How hydronics play a role in decarbonization
How hydronics play a role in decarbonization and resiliency for the built environment
Decarbonization is coming. And this goal to create a CO2-free global economy has a strong connection with how we design and build our structures. As stewards of the built environment, we have a responsibility to seek every method for optimal efficiencies, both in the short term and the long term. Hear from industry veteran Steve Swanson as he delves into the positive effects mechanical systems can have on decarbonization efforts and how hydronics, specifically, can dramatically improve efficiencies.
- What is decarbonization and how can mechanical systems have a positive effect?
- Comparison of hydronics with refrigerant systems
- The importance energy efficiency plays in decarbonization
- Why polymer solutions are the best fit for low-temperature systems
- Sustainable advantages with polymer systems
