Hydo-air system

I am looking into a slightly different type of hydronics system and I'm curious what people know about it, or what products are available.
I live in Southern California about 1/2 mile from the ocean. It's very temperate here, due to the ocean breezes cooling is not needed and heat is only required for about 3 months a year.
I looked into a product from a company in Oregon called Bio-radiant Energy, the product is called the "hydro-air" system. It uses in wall hydronic panels with a small fan and seperate thermostat for each panel. It can be connected to the domestic hot water with a small pump. It appears to be a great product, but they are really bad about returning calls.
What's nice is that it seems to be a low cost, simply installed product that will meet our mininal heating needs. Does anybody know of a similar product made by any other companies?
Thanks, Jim B

    Not a great idea

    running youyr domestic HW through your heating system.
    Use a heatexchanger or get a HW heater with a built in coil so heating and domestic HW never mix.

    Small wall mount fan coils have existed for years. Checkout Burnham's line.
