He loves showing the homeowners how to use the state of the art technology on the systems they install and hearing them say “wow that’s easy”. “Sometimes it’s hard to tell who loves the system more, me or the homeowner. With each hydronic project, we do we are always incorporating the newest and latest controls and products.” He recently took a class at the U.S. Viessman Headquarters in Rhode Island and was able to advance his knowledge in the product we use.
