Levittown ranch slab radiant heat help
slab heating help Goodmorning,
I am looking for some help/advice on heating my 1950 slab house.
We just bought the house this past summer and i have some questions, or concerns with my heating system.
The house is 900sqft slab house with a crude radiant heat.
1/2in copper embeded in the slab pusing 180deg water from a york boiler hanging in the kitchen.
The house is a origonal levitt house.
On the warmer days the thermostat will call for heat one time a day and heat the house to 65deg in about 90 minuets.
the house holds the heat well and has alot of solar gain.
Now that the wether had dipped down a bit the thermostat will call for heat more often, but will always take about
90 minuets to be satisfied.
We keep the thermostat at a steady 65deg with no setback.
I feel that the slab is getting too cold during the times that the heat is not being called for
and taking too long to get back to temp.
Does this seem right? any thoughts i guess what im poking at, is how can i get the most out of my radiant heat
