New Upgrade to FloPro Designer Software Makes Hydronic System Design Faster and Easier

The latest version of FloPro Designer, the software that slashes the time required to design residential and light commercial hydronic systems can now be downloaded from the Taco FloPro website.

The recent upgrade to this powerful, easy-to-use software includes a host of important improvements. With its intuitive graphic interface, FloPro Designer enables you to
  • Conduct a detailed heat loss analysis.
  • Lay out near boiler and system piping.
  • Size and select all the components.
  • Automatically develop a materials list.

In addition, FloPro Designer now includes an OEM boiler selection function. After you design your hydronic system, FloPro Designer's auto-select function picks the best boiler to meet system requirements.

Users can also design a system around their boiler of choice, using the boiler as a starting point. Drag and drop the preferred boiler into your schematic, and FloPro designer adjusts the system according to that model's capabilities. Full product lines from twelve boiler manufacturers are currently available in the software, with more to be added.

Other upgrades to the program include:
  • Easily move interior and exterior walls to match actual building layout, especially where a single zone covers multiple rooms.
  • See total heating and cooling loads displayed at the bottom of the screen automatically updated as new components are added.
  • Calculate under-slab insulation and floor insulation with unheated basement or crawl spaces.
  • Access a broader Taco product list now including pump flanges, differential bypass valves, air vents, flow switch and heat exchangers.

FloPro Designer is quick, accurate, and free to all members of the Taco FloPro Team contractor development and support program. The program is free to all residential contractors. Register here in under two minutes.
