Description
 
Gerry Gill and Steve Pajek are two of the sharpest steam-heating guys in America. They've been getting the most out of the older steam-heating systems in the Cleveland, Ohio area for years, and as part of their work, the did some remarkable research into balancing steam systems using these charts. Gerry and Steve tested just about all the air vents and steam traps used today (and yesterday) on steam heating, and they accurately rated the venting capacity at extremely low pressure. You'll be amazed by what you can do with this information when it comes to saving fuel.

And because Gerry and Steve are such generous guys, they've asked me to donate 100% of the price of this e-booklet to charity. I'm more than happy to do that.

Great to have April 27, 2015
Reviewer: Todd Smith from Union, NJ United States  
Very helpful in understanding what each air vent is capable of producing. It may have to be updated due to new vents being produced.

Extremely Happy February 27, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Bevilacqua from Totowa, NJ United States  
Using this chart, I can correctly size main vents (started with my own home) to have more comfortable heating and lower fuel costs.  Surprisingly most houses with steam heat that I work on the main vents are way UNDERSIZED!

Excellent reference, hard to read drawings February 12, 2015
Reviewer: Randall Stewart from Airville, PA United States  
The only problem I have with this otherwise excellent and well-written work is that the accompanying drawings, which illustrate some steam system installations, are very hard to read. The printing, at least in my example, is very light (not a printer problem, since the other pages of text are fine), and the hand-written information on those drawings is not easily read. But the information given is extremely helpful.
