Excellent book for a DIYer planning on installing a hydronic radiant system. Gives basically all the information that you need to plan and install a full system. Some of the topics are pretty involved and require some basic math, but the book walks you through everything with great detail. Covers:

1) Determining heating load estimates

2) Required water temperatures and flow rates

3) Pipe installation, including pumps and expansion tanks

4) Several approaches to zoning

5) Laying PEX tube for radiant panels

The book was very useful. The only drawback was the "Hydronics Design Kit" was not included. This costs an additional $76 from Oikos.com and is referred to many times in the book. Therefore, it is almost a requirement during use of the book.

This book is THE resource for any homeowner planning to install radiant floor heat. It is written as a textbook for HVAC students, but it serves equally well as a reference and informative design resource for the average homeowner. John Siegenthaler is recognized by his peers as one of the outstanding radiant heating engineers. I highly recommend this book.

This textbook is the kind you might want to use for a college course on Hydronic Heating Design. It mentions a software program (not included) that must have been used in conjuction with the creatation of this text. Great explainations and examples along with exercises at the end of each chapter. Well worth the price.

Although pricey, I would recommend buying this book if you plan to put in radiant floor heating yourself. I looked at the other books which just scratched the surface and found this one was a complete guide to what I needed. Don't waste your money on the others unless you just want some general information.

The author of this book knows what he's writing about.

this is really an excellent book. you can use this book to build a system from scratch with confidence. all information that could possibly be important is inside but the way it is organized you don't have to read the whole thing and you can skip around. really well written. good job. also incuded is detailed information on many possible unusal configurations including wood fired hot water systems.
