This April, the Oil Heat Cares directors, NAOHSM (National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers) and Taco, Inc., are teaming up to present a radiant heating seminar at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots football team, that will benefit the Oil Heat Cares program.

The keynote instructor for the seminar being held Thursday, April 5, 2007, will be radiant heating expert John Barba, who is originally from Harvard, MA, and now lives in Minnesota. His career in radiant started early while working for his father’s plumbing and heating business. After his father’s retirement, he took over management of the business. Barba has become one of the best-known radiant instructors in the industry and has taught thousands of people the fine art and subtle science of radiant heating.

In addition to learning the ins and outs of radiant heating, attendees will have a tour of the stadium in Foxborough, MA, that is home to the New England Patriots-three-time Superbowl world champions. The tour will include the players’ locker room and, of course, the mechanical room where all the heating happens.

The registration fee is $99 for the seminar and tour that will be held 3-9 p.m. Registration is available online at www.naohsm.org or by calling 888-552-0900.

Oil Heat Cares was established by NAOHSM to raise funds to assist needy people and organizations with the replacement of their oilheat appliances. In addition to financial contributions, the charity relies on manufacturers in the industry to donate equipment and supplies.
