First Post-Help with Custom HVAC System?


I'm glad a lot of people brought up the problem of Air-FLow...didn't think about that one too much...What if I made some sort of Dampered bypass somewhere that I can open and close manually. Run it through my hydronic coil whenever I'm burning in the boiler, and If I do happen to go away for an extended period of time I'll turn over to what I'll Call "emergency" and run it on normal heat pump with electric backup? I have the Fiber-board plenum and return on the air handler now, think I could rig something like that up...Still going to need a slightly more than simple control scheme to run everything how I would like...

Anyone have any thoughts on this??

A hydro coil on top of an air handler is a common thing around here. Air flow is solved by having the right sized duct work.

Do you happen to know of a webpage or someplace I could see a picture of this or more info to help get an idea of how it's implemented?

Here is an ADP B series air handler. It has both the refrigerant coil and hydro coil built into it. Refrigerant coil below the blower, hydro coil above the blower.

Other manufacturers use an add on hydro coil. That is simply installed above the air handler.
