Warmboard has extensive design services to better assist customers and this includes offering complete Heat Loss and Mechanical designs. Our professionally engineered drawings will specify and size all the necessary mechanical and electrical components needed for a complete Warmboard system – all for a very reasonable price.

Scope of work
Warmboard Inc's heat loss and mechanical designs include room-by-room heat loss analysis. All data modeled is based on your architectural plans and weather history from your geographical location; information necessary to properly size the boiler and ensure each room has adequate heat on the coldest nights of the year.

Our Design Project Summary documents the required flow rates and notes pressure drops for each loop, essential when determining the size of the circulation pumps. It also includes BTU and water temperatures requirements to heat each room.

Also included is a complete plumbing schematic listing all the mechanical components needed to assemble the boiler room. Control schematics that document the electrical components for the heating system are included as are the wiring details and location of each component. As an added convenience, every necessary component is specified by brand name and model number to make the purchase of the needed components as painless as possible.

Finally, we specify the pipe sizing requirements for all distribution lines that serve the manifolds as well as the copper piping and piping layout schematic in the boiler room; all necessary for the purchase and installation of all copper and Pex piping.

The Benefits of Warmboard Heat Loss and Mechanical Designs
The Warmboard designs are specific for your home and account for heating needs, occupant comfort, efficiency, reliability and serviceability. They are uncomplicated and reduce overall cost by eliminating potential labor and material expenses. These plans incorporate all heating components, including Warmboard and any supplemental heating sources, as needed. In the field, general contractors can have knowledgeable plumbers, or a competent DIY homeowner, install the radiant system with complete confidence.

Our designs are also a means to consistent comparisons. All heating professionals can bid to the same standard, making less work and less confusion for the General Contractor and heating professional. They also serve as a complete record of the heating system for homeowners; useful for service technicians or future homeowners in the event of a sale.

We offer four mechanical design options:
1. Boiler only for radiant floor heating
2. Combination boiler with indirect domestic hot water tank
3. Evolution combination heating and domestic hot water
4. Geothermal heat pump/combination heating and domestic water loads

What’s Needed To Complete A Design?
For a streamlined and straightforward process, we require the following information to get started:
• Complete floor plans and elevation drawings
• Cross section of construction plan
• Typical details of insulation levels for roof, exterior walls, exterior siding and floor
• Door and window schedules
• Location of mechanical room
• Finished floors
