I am looking to put on a couple of Fall breakfast boiler seminars in Timonium, MD, Buffalo, NY, and Charleston, WV and was wondering whether Hydronic Troubleshooting or Understanding Low Pressure Steam Systems would be a better course. Your input is appreciated and I will be eternally grateful
Thanks Ray

    Whatever makes you happier to talk about.
    Not that I speak in front of crowds, but when I know I'm going somewhere specifically to talk about HVAC, I start with questions like "what kind of problems are you having?" Or "what kind of heat are you interested in?"
    That usually gives me enough info to talk and answer the questions of 2-3 people for an hour or so.
    You have to find out what people know, before you'll know what to teach them.

    Some how, even when steams not on the table, I find a segways to talk about it.
    Probably because its simply, reliable, efficient option makes me happy.

    Looking forward to the opportunity to see you in Buffalo! Both topics are of interest to me. I’d pick the steam one if I had to choose. Please post the details here on the Wall as they become available.

    @RayWohlfarth please let me know when you do these!!! I will be there if at all possible. Timonium is the closest to me.

    While I’d love to hear both, I’d have to go with hydronic personally. I studied steam way more than hydronic and I think my steam knowledge is further along than my hydronic. But that’s just me. Either would be awesome.

    Looking forward to it!
