It’s Thermal Thursday, and today we’re showing off one cool hydronic system!
This system in Salisbury, CT, uses a geothermal heat pump to produce hot and chilled water for heating and cooling via radiant floors and fan coils.
Using Messana Controls, the home’s radiant floor provides both heating and cooling. The floor cooling capability is made possible through the use of our mSense room comfort sensors that monitor the environment’s dew point temperature. This allows Messana Controls to adjust the supply water temperature to keep the radiant surfaces above the dew point temperature to avoid condensation.
Despite the absence of dedicated dehumidification units, Messana Controls will run the hydronic fan coils in cooling at a low fan speed 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
