Frontal view of The Climate Right System

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. You may also visit the project page on our website to view more photos and a video of the delivery of The Climate Right Systems.

Hydronics forecast: Looking ahead to 2012

Posted on by Beth

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.

SDPM’s Climate Right System Endorsed by Robert Bean

Posted on by Beth

Bill Shady’s Climate Right System recently received this rave review and endorsement from energy and indoor environmental quality expert Robert Bean in the Journal of Indoor Environmental Quality.

“I’ve had some time to look at the SDPM appliances for integrating and controlling multiple energy sources for hybrid HVAC systems. For a long time I’ve been a big fan of the appliance principle and specifically for systems which incorporate hydronics as the integrating medium. The SDPM product line developed by Bill Shady, P.E., and his team enables the merging of renewable systems into a form that facilitates function by overcoming the complex challenges of custom on site fabricated systems. With this product line, Bill has applied his engineering skills with his passion for conservation in demonstrating that even the most complex energy management system can be standardized by simple recognized shapes. It looks like an appliance, has the same parts as an appliance and its very coolness is elevated by how effectively it conserves time and energy in the world of engineering, contracting and sustainability.”
