We’re excited to share yet another East Coast geothermal project!
This 4,000 sqft home in Westport Island, Maine, utilizes a GeoComfort geothermal heat pump as an energy source for its hydronic system. The 14-zone system uses Messana Controls to manage Jaga hydronic fan coils and a radiant floor.
Messana Controls allow the home’s radiant floor to provide radiant cooling in addition to heating. To provide cooling, mSense room comfort sensors monitor the environment’s dew point temperature. With this data, Messana Controls can adjust the supply water temperature to avoid condensation. Alternatively, Messana Controls can activate forms of dehumidification to lower the dew point temperature within the environment, increasing cooling output.
While this project does not utilize dedicated dehumidification units, Messana Controls can run the fan coils at a low fan speed while pumping cold water through the hydronic coil to provide dehumidification when necessary.
