It took a friend twisting my arm to first join the RPA, but it sure has paid dividends in the years since! I simply can't put a value on the education I've received, the friends I've acquired, the business improvements I've made and the networking connections I've built all as a direct result of joining the RPA. Just wish I'd have done it sooner.

"From developing codes and guidelines to educational programs and outreach, the RPA represents my beliefs in radiant systems across the continent. Additionally, contractors, supply house staff and members of the manufacturing community holding RPA membership and certification serves to meet many of the pre-qualifying criteria for bidding on our projects. This has become a key component to our company's success engineering and managing radiant projects across North America."

The RPA is a community of professionals dedicated to doing radiant panel heating and cooling correctly. Their work is essential in positioning radiant panel heating and cooling as an unsurpassed means of delivering comfort. While some take an "anything goes" approach to installing radiant systems, the RPA strives to hold the bar high, by training HVAC professionals in proper design and installation techniques. I respect what they stand for, and what they do. That's why I'm a member.

When I'm researching a topic for a magazine article or a book I usually turn toward people who are smarter than I am on that subject. That's why I joined the Radiant Professionals Alliance. This is where I find the depth of knowledge and field experience I need to breathe life into my writing. It's also a place where I know my voice gets heard when it comes to conversations about the future of hydronic heating and cooling in the U.S. These are some of the smartest people in our business and they know how to get things done. So glad I joined!
