SDPM’s Climate Right Systems, the all-in-one hydronic heating and cooling package, was recently installed in a luxury home in Pacific Palisades and is the subject of a feature in the Spring, 2012 issue of Radiant Living Magazine.
In the article, SDPM’s CEO and founder, Bill Shady, P.E. discusses how his “plug and play” appliance arrived at the job site already built and tested at the factory with no need to fabricate onsite and he explains that the “Right” in Climate Right Systems stands for “renewable, integrated, gas hybrid thermal systems.”
To read more about the installation in this 8500 sq. ft. concrete and timber framed home overlooking the Santa Monica Bay, view the online edition here and scroll to page 16.

Below is an excerpt of Dan Foley’s column, “From the Field,” in this month’s PhC News. Dan is the owner of Foley Mechanical in the Washington, D.C. area of Lorton, VA. In this article, he interviewed hydronic industry experts around the country to get their predictions for what’s ahead.
To benefit from a West Coast perspective, I talked with Bill Shady, P.E., owner of Sustainable Design and Product Management, a Santa Cruz-based consulting engineering and product development firm. Bill’s primary market covers the entire state of California, but he has projects all over North America, as well as international commissions. “2011 was a recovery year for everybody,” said Shady. “The economy and construction industry contracted so quickly, it took people by surprise. We look for 2012 to be a year of positive growth.”
Bill certainly has a positive outlook. He’s rolling out a brand new, innovative product called the Climate Right System, a packaged mechanical and control system that I plan to cover in greater detail in a future column. The product is in growth mode, with nine systems on order.
“My market is full of young, wealthy, stock-laden Internet and software entrepreneurs,” says Shady. “I foresee the high-end custom estate home market picking up.”
Bill also forecasts growth in the hydronics market for the multi-family high-rise commercial market. The owners of these projects are looking for mechanical systems with a small footprint that are economical to operate and allow for sub-metering, according to Bill. So it sounds like this is a good time to be in the hydronics business in California.Blog | Leave a comment
