Original Air Date: January 16, 2013


Earn Continuing Education Credits: This one-hour contact program provides 0.1 CEU or 1.0 PDH.


This webinar covers hot water temperature maintenance requirements and design. This webinar includes model code language for the application of temperature maintenance along with methods to provide the capability. Systems to be discussed will include heat trace and circulated system. The portions of the webinar dealing with the design elements will include practice examples for the participate to work along with the presenter. It is expected that each participant will be able to properly design both heat trace systems and circulated systems, including circulation pump selection and hot water return pipe sizing, at the completion of the webinar.
