sorry if i missed any posts on this topic but i used the search function and didn't find anything directly related to my question
i would like to install hydronic radiant floor heating in the basement of my 1100 sq ft bungalow in south western ontario, canada
i plan to rip up the current poured floor and install insulation, wire mesh and pex tubing then pour a new floor lower then the current one
we currently have a 2004 mid-efficiency NG forced air furnace and a 1997 33 US Gal NGhot water tank
my question is what type of heat source should i install?
electric boiler, NG hot water tank or NG boiler and tank?
not really my specialty but there was someone on here that tried to use a 40 gal elec tank to do what youire doing needless to say it didnt even come close to working you need to do a heatload calculation to figure out your load but id say you definitly want a boiler or maybe a tankless heater but they cost as much as a boiler i think but take up almost no space also im going to say go with hi eff. gas
