Most condensing boilers have an AFUE for residential boilers, or a combustion efficiency for commercial boilers in the 92-95% range.  Yet when a homeowner/building owner looks at their heating bills the savings are not there. In this webinar, Jody Samuell, Manager of Engineer Education, will look at condensing boiler performance and how you can design to achieve a higher level of performance. Learn about:

- AFUE and combustion efficiency, what do they mean and how close is it to delivered performance?
- Squeezing out the water: the basics of dew point
- Can baseboard and condensing work together?
- Outdoor reset: a must to achieve maximum performance
- Balancing your system for efficiency
- What system Delta T are you designing for?

Jody graduated from the Maine Maritime Academy in 1983 with a Marine Engineering Degree and earned a U.S. Coast Guard license. After graduation he accepted a commission with the U.S. Navy and served as a nuclear trained officer on submarines. Jody's teaching career began at the Naval Education and Training Command in Groton, Conn.

Upon completing his service commitment, Jody turned his attention to the HVAC industry. He's invested over 20 years of experience in product management, technical support and training for boiler and tank manufacturers such as Heatmaker, AMTROL and most recently Viessmann. During this time Jody refined his industry knowledge, experience and his passion for teaching. His presentation style will keep you engaged and challenged as he discusses best methods to approach hydronic system design.
