ABSTRACT
The article discusses how a new breed of boiler is challenging conventional practices and supporting new approaches to improve the cost and energy efficiency of hydronic heating loops. It notes that conventional hydronic-heating-loop design practices represent an interrelated effort to prevent direct-fired boilers from condensing in heat exchangers.
