Piping and Controls for Retrofitting Pellet Boilers to Existing Heating Systems

Most pellet boilers are installed in buildings with existing heating systems. This Workshop will discuss several approaches to optimize both the pellet boiler operation and the use of the existing boiler. It will discuss several piping and control strategies that are relevant to different existing systems and specific goals of the completed system. For example: Should the pellet boiler be used to heat domestic hot water during warm weather, or should that task be handled by the existing boiler?
