Learning from the industry's best

I've made a point to learn as much as I can from the professionals I've encountered throughout my quest to build an eco-friendly, comfortable home. Even though I have home building experience that stretches three decades, I have the good fortune to work with some of the very best, most knowledgeable people in the HVAC industry.

My colleagues at Taco Comfort Solutions are a great resource, and they're right in my own backyard. Like me, many of them have interests that encompass parts of any home building project that include but are not limited to HVAC and indoor comfort.

One person who I've enjoyed talking to the most is Taco's FloPro Team Leader John Barba. He is well-known as one of the best trainers in the industry, and in this episode I had the opportunity to sit down with him and talk shop about this project. I found his insights to be valuable, and you may pick up a few things from him too. If you have any comments about what he says to me in this episode, join the conversation and let us know!

    Jay, thanks for the link! Right now, we’re looking at putting some radiant heating in the basement slab, garage floor, and first and second floors. A ground source heat pump would be great for this application. Jay, do you have a website where I can learn more?

    Dave, John Barba is one of the best. I think that when you talk to him, he’ll probably tell you how geothermal heating and cooling is so versatile. It’s hydronic, and it allows for several variations of distribution such as radiant heat or forced air. This video helps to explain: https://youtu.be/ZeZ_E34cxMs

    We’ll have to explore it further when you’re ready!
