Integrated piping system (IPS) the “Affordable Green “hydronic heating and cooling system
A reduced cost 4-pipe system design manages the domestic water temperature to Fan coils as an “HVAC Fixture” reducing installed cost and improving comfort. Topics to be discussed include:
*IPS OnDemand an approach to decarbonization and Electrification.*
*Application is in buildings that already require extensive domestic water distribution as in Hotels, Dormitories, Condominiums, Assisted living, or Government housing.*
*The system concept may also be used to add heating or reheat to parts of buildings.*
*The major energy efficiency advantage is Central System versus packaged DX units*
*The design requires that the chiller plant be isolated from the domestic water according to code; only Btu’s transfer; not the water.*
*The Fan coils must be-NSF-61certified, have higher heat transfer capability, code approved valves, and must include a “purge” function to avoid dead legs and stagnation. (Legionella elimination)*
*A Domestic Cold Water Return (DCWR) must be added to the system and sized for the fan coil flow as is the hot water return (DHWR).*
*The domestic water supply temperature is either “economizer cooling” or “free GeoExchange” (no loop cost) – the entire build cooling load can be reclaimed.*
*Additional LEED opportunities include materials reduction, alternate materials, redundancy, CFC reduction, M&V, and “Green” technology in this innovative design.*

Bio: Monte Kartchner has been in the HVAC industry in two countries for more than 25 years, and is currently the Director of Business Development Applied Products for Williams Comfort Products. With his extensive experience in working with manufacturers reps, mechanical contractors and engineers his passion lies in sharing his knowledge of HVAC systems, he can positively impact the engineering process in selecting a HVAC that will work best for the end users.
This drive has led him to speaking with a wide variety of groups over the years, running full day hands-on training to short lecture-based learning sessions for reps, contractors, engineers and developers in the United States and Canada.
An energetic speaker who favor’s hands-on learning experiences, Monte focuses his workshop on practical ‘take-away’ skills or activities for immediate use by participants. Rather than focusing on past systems, Monte focuses on product enhancement and the latest in green technology. This makes it easier to integrate engaging but developmentally useful systems that engineers can be susceptible to using.
