About Us

Welcome to the JMP Study Hall – the web’s best technical resource for commercial HVAC and plumbing professionals!  

The JMP Study Hall is an outreach of James M. Pleasants Co., one of the southeast’s largest representatives of commercial HVAC and fluid handling equipment.  

Here you’ll find informative, easy-to-read articles on everything from hydronic fundamentals (e.g. “How to Read a Pump Curve”) to the complex control issues that impact boiler and chiller plant efficiency.

Not Your Average HVAC Blog

For over 50 years, JMP has been educating its customers, travelling throughout our territories providing free, continuing education.  In 2012 we decided to add another layer to our outreach -- an online blog written specifically for engineers, contractors, facility managers, and maintenance professionals.
