New BAXI Rilancio+ & MS Universale+ Partage Controllers

BAXI have released an upgraded range of Partage Controllers. The Rilancio+ and MS Universale+ controllers feature high flow modulating pumps and S/Steel hydraulic separators as well as all copper / brass components. In addition lower power inputs dramatically improve energy consumption.

The Rilancio+ range comes in two models for equal temperature zones (2 and 3 circuit), whilst the MS Universale+ comes in two models for split temperature zones (both 2 and 3 circuit). The unit’s compact size (only 210 mm deep) facilitates flush fitting in a recess as well as normal wall hanging. The controllers feature all copper and brass components, S/Steel hydraulic separator, and incorporate new hi-flow modulating pumps controlled by a thermostat in the heated area. In addition the modulating pump has a built in air-elimination function. The controllers can be used in conjunction with all Baxi Boiler models.

Success at ARBS 2016 Exhibition

The ARBS (Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services) Expo for 2016 has come and gone. ARBS is the biggest HVAC industry show in the Southern Hemisphere, and HydroHeat have been a part of it for many years now. This years Expo was a step up from 2014, we noticed about 30% more exhibitors and a noticeable increase in foot traffic over the three days.

The event was a great success for HydroHeat, with many interested industry professionals attending from all over Australia. With our stand positioned on a corner next to the seminar entrance, we had a great deal of traffic and we found ourselves very busy for the whole show. It was great to see so many familiar faces along with lots of new faces too, with many trade professionals interested in heating efficiency and wanting to know more about hydronic condensing boiler heating systems. The best way to find out more about hydronic heating is simply to give us a call. We can help specify, design and assist with the installation of your next building heating project.

New Air/Dirt Separator from Caleffi

The clever guys at Caleffi have come out with a new kind of Air/Dirt separator, the Caleffi ‘DirtMag’.

The patent pending design uses a magnetic separator capable of removing even the smallest particles and ferrous impurities with extremely limited head losses. Can be installed to both horizontal and vertical pipes, suitable for all closed systems. Extremely quick and easy to clean with no decommissioning required, thanks to the removable magnetic ring and wide drain cock.

Grand Designs Live – The Wrap Up

HydroHeat stand at Grand Designs show a huge success

The Grand Designs Live Show at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre has been and gone. Thousands of home owners attended over the three days, and the HydroHeat stand was one the most popular on offer with a non stop procession of interested consumers. Floor Heating was a major topic of interest, as was general awareness and education about Hydronic Heating. There were also many looking for changeover boilers to existing systems and retro fit improvements to existing systems.

Many home owners were surprised (shocked) at how efficient Hydronic Heating systems are compared to traditional heating options such as Ducted or Split Systems. Overall it was surprising how many home owners are still unaware of Hydronic Heating not just as a viable alternative but as a better solution. Suffice to say they left armed with info about HydroHeat Hydronic products, and recommendations to our trusted HydroHeat Installers.

To Rate, or Not to Rate?

What does a ‘Boiler Efficiency Rating’ mean?

To rate, or not to rate? In Australia there is currently no rating system for Heating Boiler efficiency, and there is unlikely to be for several years to come. So how do you know if you are buying an efficient heating boiler or not? For this reason, we refer to the ‘SEDBUK’ rating system used in Europe. ’SEDBUK’ is the accepted standard for the UK and Europe (Stands for ‘Seasonal Efficiency of a Domestic Boiler in the UK’) and effectively measures a boilers efficiency.

The lack of an Australian Heating boiler rating is made even more confusing for consumers as ‘Domestic Hot Water Boilers’ do have a rating system (they use the AGA Star Rating system), it is only ‘Heating Boilers’ that do not, hence the SEDBUK system is the best (and only) reference for Heating Boiler Efficiency. As the space heating boiler market is relatively small in Australia compared to Europe the legislation and procedure has not yet been put in place by the government.

So what does this mean to the consumer? A lot. It means the consumer has to be extremely diligent in boiler selection to ensure the greatest efficiency. BAXI boilers are the most efficient Heating Boilers for sale in Australia and are amongst the most efficient in the world.
