PEWAUKEE, Wis. - The Gustave A. Larson Co. recently added the Baxi Luna home-comfort system to its wholesale product line, which it says eliminates the need for both a furnace and a hot water tank in one wall-hung boiler about the size of a small kitchen cabinet.

"This new technology is beginning to open the eyes of more mechanical contractors, builders, architects, designers and homeowners in the Midwest," said Gregg Turley, vice president of sales and marketing with the company.

Larson recently provided training for 500 mechanical contractors from Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Indiana, North and South Dakota and Michigan. Led by hydronic specialist Phil Hrenak, the company said it is committed to more training to support this growing technology.
