This is a rare opportunity to take an advanced hydronic design course with John Siegenthaler. The course provides a detailed discussion of the design elements underlying modern hydronic heating systems. It presents both design concepts and design tools for optimizing hydronic heating systems in a variety of contemporary applications. It is not meant as an introduction course. Rather, it is structured to combine a student’s existing knowledge, with new approaches and analytical methods that are specifically focused on the cutting-edge of hydronic heating. The goal is to equip students to design state-of-the-art systems for residential and light commercial buildings that deliver unsurpassed comfort, efficiency, and reliability.
Learn how to design state-of-the-art systems for residential and light commercial buildings that deliver unsurpassed comfort, efficiency and reliability.

This class was fantastic. It was extremely challenging. I've got to say, I did not realize this whole course would challenge me as much as it did nor did I think it would take up as much of my time. I'm walking away with A LOT of ammo for all my future designs.”
- Adam Mailhot, Shelton Winnelson
This was a great class and money well spent. I have learned a lot, and I would highly recommend this class to anyone in the hydronic industry.”
- Keith Ouimette, Cardinal Heating & Air Conditioning
This was one of the best courses I have ever taken. It covered everything from soup to nuts, from the basic component level all the way through theory and formulas, leaving nothing out. The future of hydronic heating is coming and I am well prepared for it.”
- Dan Miller, New York Office of General Services
I am so glad I was able to take this course! I was excited to take MHSD, but apprehensive of the format as I've not taken online education before. I'm happy to report that I've not learned more in 10 weeks of my life. It is quite something to now be able to "see" inside of a hydronic system that you've been installing for years. This has been a real eye opener to what "designing" a hydronic system should be. I am so very thankful to John and to all of those at HeatSpring for presenting this excellent course. ”
- Dave Turbovsky, Turbo Construction
I found this course very comprehensive. I have been involved with designing and troubleshooting hydronic systems for nearly 15 years and I learned a great deal from the course. I was hoping it would go into some of the finer details of hydronic systems and it certainly did.”
- Mark Armstrong, Armco Solutions
Siggy's course exceeded my expectations. It was hugely enjoyable and informative, incorporating the latest best practices and technology. It has given me the tools and confidence to move our business to the next level, completing the picture with provision of heating and cooling distribution.”
- John Managh, Hellbent Geothermal
I liked the layout of this course. The lecture, coupled with discussions on real life issues, rules of thumb, practical drawings and images, all worked in unison. The questions at the end were important for a good re-cap of what we learned in 10 weeks. It has been a wonderful course and every minute spent on it has been valuable. ”
- Majid Shafiq, Xylem
This course is very challenging and will test your limits. Stay focused and give it your all as you will not be disappointed. John does a great job of presenting the material and supporting you through the course as do the folks at HeatSpring. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone involved with hydronic heating system design.
- Jim Martini, JMartini Design
If you want to learn and interact with the expert "who wrote the book" on hydronic heating, this is a convenient way to do it! ”
- Harry Voorhees, Stellar Science
Mastering Hydronic System Design presents both engineering concepts and installation details in a way that both engineers and installers will appreciate.”
