This is that project we had discussed months ago. First my price was too high then I lowered the price, but ultimately we settled on a price that was 11K higher than my original numbers. Go figure!

This project has 4 zones of radiant (slab and joist bay) and 2 zones of fin tube baseboard. Dual Roth fuel tanks supply the fuel to the Vitola VB2-22. 5,000 square feet of heated area. This client is an engineer for Air Products so I was quizzed on a daily basis ;-) All in all, great guy and profitable project.

PS. I wish I could get Danfoss to make panels with Viessmann controls! I would buy every one they make.

Warm Regards,

    The diamond plate is incredible! I never thought of it, I was thinking of using some stainless steel sheet for a project I am working on now. Your an inspiration. I had the same thing going on with a job I did earlier this year. He is an electronic engineer.... I went to his house on a service call to repair the a/c system, and ended up crunching cfm, btu, gpm, fpm, system efficiency vs. combustion efficiency numbers with him for almost a month. Finally I ended up doing 17k of work.... Engineers might be a pain at first, but if they just want to test our competancy, and are willing to pay for a good job....these engineers can be our best customers! Never mind my father who always said they are just "educated idiots".....
