    Re: add radiators for my basement

    I like zone valves because if the head goes bad, you can manually open the zone (will have to manually close it as well) until someone gets there to change out the head. I also like the fact there are no flow checks than can get stuck open and you have heat drifting up in the summer time or when the zone isn't calling for heat. Changing out a head is much quicker and cheaper than changing out a circulator, cause we both know most guys install circulators without valves on either side.

    Now in your defense, I don't get into the big commercial stuff that you do, so circulators are a much better choice for you.

    But I think we both could agree that circulators last a pretty long time these days, so it's rare for us to come across a bad circulator in a zone valved system.

      most of the systems i do are primary secondary piping and there are no flow valves

        Yea see...you deal with things on a much larger scale than i do. Even though it's the same concept, I would get lost on commercial heating.

        Remember a few months ago...it was a big deal for me to help my buddy with a roof top unit..which is no big deal for you.
