Right now I'm a forth year. I hope to go back in January for the last time. I had both Rob for first, Roger for second and Rob and Roger for third. Roger was telling me that Nait was going to be offering a hydronic designer course soon.(I wonder if its the same one you were mentioning) There trying to make it so you can do all or most of it at home. So I might go for that after.
So what do you think I should do..... I don't really have a hole lot of room and I would rather stay away from heating with hot water tanks. There is a
33gal there right now and it can't keep up. They use alot of hot water in the mornings. So there for the hot water get cool and then gets pumped through the floor, which cooles it down and takes all day to heat back up again.
Combie boiler doesnt sound too bad now. What do you suggest for the least amount $$. I will run another gas line if needed its not that far.
I was just trying to take an easy way out that turned out not to be so easy. I guess thats what you get. I didn't think it would take that much power to heat and thats the last thing I want to do is cost them more a month in heating. So thanks for steering me away from that.
I'm not replacing the in floor with forced air The house has BOTH. The main heat sorce is the forced air. The little addition is 240sq ft that doesn't even need the in floor, its exactly that a comfort thing. The only reason I would increase the gas line size is because it would be to small to run several units. But it turns out that I would only have to replace a small section if that was the case.
When you say a whole lot of room,what kind of dimensions do you have to work with,espescially door casing.
The room is about 3w x 5d x 7h. The door is a standard door but opens in. Then there is a crawl space behind the furnaces and hot water tank thats about 3 ft high. But you would have to pretty much crawl to get there with a completely different access.
Ok I found one that will work, its a N\G combie boiler thats 90% efficient. Its a 50 gal and it will recover 92 gal per hour. They listed it for $3000 and they will give it to me for $1750. Sounds like not to bad of an idea. So I will just take out the old hot water tank and put this one in its place.
