Understanding the Effects of Glycol on Hydronic Systems
From the Publisher:
The Summer 2013 issue of TAB Journal covers a variety of topics from the test and balance field. The cover story, from Joseph Hardy, TBE, of Augusta Air Balance Co., LLC, investigates the benefits of adding glycol to a hydronic system.

Sean Bunting, TBE, of National Air Balance Company, Inc., explores the effects that environmental factors such as air temperature and elevation have on instrument readings.

Kit Brockles, TBE, of Engineered Air Balance Co., Inc., looks at the complications that arise when trying to incorporate an indoor air quality plan into a construction schedule.

Thomas Bunner, TBE, of Palmetto Air & Water Balance, Inc., examines common strategies for maintaining minimum outdoor airflow rate.

Henry Long, TBE, offers some pointers for writing an effective design review, which can help identify omissions or deficiencies before construction begins.

Kahoe Air Balance Company’s Robert Severin, TBE, gives us the latest installment of Tech Tips, in which he discusses what certain noises can tell a TAB agent about how a system is performing.

And last but never least, this issue’s Tech Talk answers questions regarding the best way to balance grilles in multi-family dwellings with a low design CFM per space.
