The supervisor of facilities maintenance and operations, Hank Hoovestahl, wishes the environmental guys who decided to connect the steam boiler to a newer hydronic boiler would have talked to the O&M staff first. Luckily for Hank, he does not have to ask his pal Johnny Tundra twice for help.</div> <p><a href="http://hpac.com/heating/adventures-johnny-tundra-cold-weather-engineer-plugging-government-leak" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hpac.com/heating/adventures-johnny-tundra-cold-weather-engineer-plugging-government-leak#comments Galleries Heating Piping / Pumping Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:14:00 +0000 27931 at http://hpac.com Cleaver-Brooks, Grundfos Set Webinars on Boiler-Room Pumping Systems http://hpac.com/piping-pumping/cleaver-brooks-grundfos-set-webinars-boiler-room-pumping-systems <div class="node-body article-body">Cleaver-Brooks and Grundfos Pumps Corp. will host a three-part series of free webinars on pumping systems used in boiler rooms.</div> <p><a href="http://hpac.com/piping-pumping/cleaver-brooks-grundfos-set-webinars-boiler-room-pumping-systems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hpac.com/piping-pumping/cleaver-brooks-grundfos-set-webinars-boiler-room-pumping-systems#comments Heating Piping / Pumping Mon, 18 Jul 2016 20:08:00 +0000 27851 at http://hpac.com GALLERY: Vintage HVAC Advertisements, 1943 http://hpac.com/galleries/gallery-vintage-hvac-advertisements-1943 <div class="field-byline"> By ASHLEY M.
