When you say radiant do you mean in-floor heating?

How is your current system set up? Do you have one circulator pump and zone valves or does each zone have its own circulator?

Hi Andrew
Thanks for your effort
The radiant zone will be a new zone in floor
I know have 4 hight temp zones with a circulator for those zones. each zone has its own zone valve

A moderator should move this thread to the HVAC section.

One of the HVAC experts should better be equipped to answer this, but assuming the pump can handle the additional load, I'd think all you need is another zone valve. You also need a mixing valve to reduce the temperature of the new radiant floor zone.
