Challenged by an improperly installed heating system resulting in a house that was either above 80° or below 60°F, Joseph Keyes of Heat Tek Heating and Plumbing (Johnson City, N.Y.) was tasked with solving the problem. He first separated the house into four zones. He then created a primary/secondary system using a Caleffi hydraulic separator and sized all circulators for precise flow. A Caleffi AutoFill fill valve and QuickSetter balancing valve were also utilized. Not only were the expectations of the home owner AND Mr. Keyes’ himself exceeded, his installation was the January winning entry in the Caleffi Excellence contest.
Heat Tek’s winning entry was determined by most audience votes received during a recently held Coffee with Caleffi webinar. Mr. Keyes was presented with an iPadTM mini by Tom Mahon (Northeast Sales Associates) and Roger Corrente (Caleffi North America). Joe is now a contender for the grand prize: a trip to our global headquarters in Italy. After 12 months, the grand prize winner will be chosen from the 12 monthly winners by a panel of industry experts and Caleffi executives.
