Modern Hydronic Heating
for Residential and Light Commercial Buildings, 3E

by John Siegenthaler

Third Edition                    

From simple applications to multi-load / multi-temperature systems, learn how to use the newest and most appropriate hydronic heating methods and hardware to create system the deliver the ultimate in heating comfort, reliability, and energy efficiency.

Heavily illustrated with product and installation photos, and hundreds of detailed full-color schematics, MODERN HYDRONIC HEATING, 3rd EDITION is a one-of-a-kind comprehensive reference on hydronic heating for the present and future. It transforms engineering-level design information into practical tools that can be used by technical students and heating professional alike.

This revised edition features the latest design and installation techniques for residential and light commercial hydronic systems including use of renewable energy heat sources, hydraulic separation, smart circulators, distribution efficiency, thermal accumulators, mixing methods, heat metering, and web-enabled control methods.

Everyone involved in the heating trade will benefit from this preeminent resource of the North American heating industry. It is well-suited for use in a formal education course, self-study, or as an on the job reference.

John Siegenthaler, P.E., a mechanical engineering graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is an Associate Professor of engineering technology at Mohawk Valley Community College, and a licensed professional engineer.

He has over 25 of experience in designing modern hydronic heating systems and is also a member of the Radiant Panel Association. John is a presenter at national and international conferences on hydronic and radiant heating.


  • Expanded coverage of renewable energy heat sources for hydronic systems including solar thermal collectors, geothermal water-to-water heat pumps, and wood- and pellet-fired boilers. The latest boiler technology is also discussed to enhance the content of previous editions.
  • All-new material on "smart circulators," hydraulic separation, and distribution efficiency that addresses the latest industry trends.
  • Text is now 4 color with fully updated photographs and line art to better illustrate concepts used to design and install hydronic systems.
  • More "green" renewable energy content inlcued in 'Green Wave' coverage; the ability of hydronics to deliver heat at a fraction of distribution energy and distribution efficiency. Also see information on solar energy.
  • Encourages a strong understanding of design and installation with detailed piping and electrical schematics that illustrate nearly every piping and control technique used in modern hydronic heating.
  • Presents analytical design tools that teach readers how to assess the thermal and hydraulic performance of proposed systems before they are installed, avoiding potentially costly problems.
  • Facilitates the practical application of key concepts with real-world examples based on actual design situations and including references to the book's formulas and data, allowing readers to visualize how they are used in the trade.
  • Presents a complete list of variables and their required unit whenever a formula is introduced. Gives examples with solutions and follow-up discussion on a wide range of calculations associated with good hydronic system design.
  • Sets readers up for success in today's heating industry with complete coverage of the latest hardware, design concepts, and installation techniques, making this text one of the heating industry's leading references.
  • More "green" renewable energy content inlcued in 'Green Wave' coverage; the ability of hydronics to deliver heat at a fraction of distribution energy and distribution efficiency. Also see information on solar energy.
  • Describes the details used in designing and commissioning hydronic systems, including warnings of thing not to do.
  • Provides a website at which a free version of the Hydronics Design Studio companion software can be downloaded and used as a routine design tool
  • Emphasizes how to create simple and reliable systems without sacrificing energy efficiency or comfort.
  • Modern hydronics technology is the "glue" that holds most thermally-based renewable energy systems together. Accordingly, this edition provides expanded and detailed coverage of how renewable energy heat sources are used within the context of hydronic heating.
  • Emphasizes underlying physical concepts of thermal equilibrium and hydraulic equilibrium that govern the behavior of all hydronic systems. These concepts greatly assist in both design and troubleshooting.
  • Standard imperial units are used exclusively, guaranteeing consistency with today's North American hydronics industry.
  • Additional examples that demonstrate why modern hydronics is the enabling technology necessary to optimize the performance of both conventional and renewable energy systems.
