HPAC Magazine


Proud of your hydronics design and installation work? Is it better than the rest? If it’s “Insta worthy”, it’s time to bring it on!

Once again HPAC Magazine is calling on hydronic contractors across Canada to get your cameras ready and take shots of your best installation project. Not only can you claim the title of Sweet Heat contest winner, you can also claim one of two $3,000 spending spree prizes courtesy of EMCO Corporation.

Contest entry is simple. E-mail us photos of a completed installation—it can be a new build or a retrofit, residential or commercial—and provide some details about the project and why it’s worthy of claiming the Sweet Heat 2023 Title.

Submissions are limited to one per contractor.

A good looking project is only one part of the judging criteria. Please fill out an entry form and include a summary of the project (including where and when the job was completed and how it met the customer’s needs) and answer these three questions:

  1. What were the challenges to be solved?
  2. How did the system meet these challenges?
  3. How was the solution creative/innovative? (ie. how was it cost-effective, how is it energy efficient, simple in design, user-friendly, modern technology, etc.)

There are two categories: Residential and Commercial.

Entry Deadline: July 31, 2023.

Important: Entries must include the description of the particular challenges faced with this installation and how obstacles were overcome to deliver your customer Sweet Heat.

Last year the judges favoured entries with “simple complexity” and the ability to provide approachable solutions for their customers. We all look forward to seeing what our Canadian hydronics pros bring to the contest this year.
