    staple-up radiant

    I have an oil- fired hot water boiler, with a summer/ winter hook up. My supply comes off the boiler into my flo-check,from there it tees one side goes into my expansion tank, and the other side goes and tees off into 3 zones,(i have no zone valves.)All 3 lines loop back and tie into the return, then into the circ, and into the boiler.I cut out my first floor baseboard and installed onyx tubing. My plan was to tie back into the zone I cut out. From my supply on that zone into a strainer,then a flo-check into a tempering valve then into a circulater and then into my radiant coming back with a check valve and then into my existing return. Will this work?

    Pump away from the mixing valve...never into it. Did you do a heat loss? kpc

    Yes, I did a heat loss, and my circ is after the mixing valve. I was told, if my bedroom zone was calling for heat and the radiant zone wasn't there could be a problem or vise versa.

    You're going to need zone valves, since the heat demand with differ from the basement to the rest of the house.
