Caleffi Excellence, 172 Series Distribution Manifold

Radiant Floor Heat


Determination in installing a home owner’s heating system was the key to success for Jamie Whitehead of Cooper Plumbing and Heating (Calgary, Alberta).   The installation included domestic hot water, radiant floor heat throughout the home and forced air. Caleffi’s 172 Series manifold mixing stations were used to evenly distribute temperature to the radiant floor heat zones.  Whitehead not only succeeded in a job well done despite the challenging space constraints of the home’s mechanical room, but his design also won the March winning entry in the Caleffi Excellence contest.

His winning entry was determined by most audience votes received during a recently held Coffee with Caleffi™ webinar.  Whitehead was presented with an iPad™ mini by Kim Butts (Mechanical Systems 2000).  He is now a contender for the grand prize:   a trip to our global headquarters in Italy.  After 12 months, the grand prize winner will be chosen from the 12 monthly winners by a panel of industry experts and Caleffi executives.

It’s not too late to share your design innovation in the Excellence contest.  Visit for contest details.
