We recently performed a system start-up for this remarkable home in Salisbury, CT! The home uses a geothermal heat pump to produce hot and chilled water for heating and cooling via radiant floors and fan coils.
By utilizing Messana Controls, the home’s radiant floor can be used to provide cooling in addition to heating. This unique radiant floor cooling functionality is achieved by employing our mSense room comfort sensors to monitor the dew point temperature within the environment. By doing so, Messana Controls can intelligently regulate the supply water temperature, preventing the radiant surfaces from falling below the dew point and thereby avoiding the formation of condensation.
Although this project has no dedicated dehumidification units, Messana Controls will run the hydronic fan coils at a low fan speed while running cold water through the hydronic coil to provide dehumidification when necessary.
Key components of this system include:
- Jaga fan coils (Briza & Clima Canal)
- Enertech Hydron geothermal heat pump
- HTP boiler
- Boiler Buddy buffer tank
- Grundfos pumps
- Taco XBP
- Belimo diverting valves
- PAW mixing and non-mixing pump stations
- Zehnder ERV
