Thermal Energy Metering [30 Mechanical Minutes]

March 20, 2021   By HPAC Magazine

In this session of 30 Mechanical Minutes, first presented at the Modern Hydronics Summit 2021, HPAC editor Doug Picklyk speaks with Curtis Bennett, a regular writer with HPAC and the product development manager at HBX Controls, as well as Sam Kolias, CEO and Chairman of Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust, owners of a broad portfolio of multi-tenant buildings (communities) across Canada.

The group talks about the recent trend for multi-unit residential buildings to install thermal energy meters, or Btu meters, for measuring the energy used in hydronic heating systems. The topics covered include: what energy meters are, where they get installed, how they help building owners, and how the hydronics industry can get involved.
