Your hydronic heating or cooling system needs to be drained for a cleaning or it is time to replace your heat transfer fluid. Do you know how much fluid your system holds? When it is time to refill, you need to know your system's volume to order the right quantity of glycol. But what if you don't know what that amount is? How do you determine the volume of glycol required for your hydronic HVAC system? Let's explore how to determine volume.
In this article, we will discuss two methods to accurately measure system volume of heat transfer fluids. While neither are 100% precise, they will get you a close approximate volume which can be used to place your order.
