Hi, I just bought a house at Winter Park Colorado ski area.
The House is 10 yrs old, 1700sq' heated, well built, & highly insulated
I have some concerns about the radiant heating.
I have a 150,000 btu slalant-fin SX-150EDP boiler in the lower level
As best as I can tell my zones are as follows:
2 zones of radiant in floor lower level (Daylight Basement Living area).
Lower zone 1 = 450'sq carpet and tile on slab.
Lower zone 2 = 250'sq carpet and tile on slab.
Upstairs on main floor 2 zones of underfloor radiant.
Upper Zone 3 = Tile floor in Kitchen, Foyer, & Dining. Carpet in LR 700 sq'
Uptairs zone 4 = Tile in 2 bathrooms, and carpet in bedroom, 300 sq'.
Zone 5 = 250 sq' slab Garage.
Zone 6 = 80gal Amtrol Boiler mate WHS80.
OUR SETUP IS:
BOILER, to air sep/exp tank, to grundfos 26-99, to 6 shot manifold, to 6 load,s back through 6 zone valves, to 6 shot manifold, to old pump that does not work, finally back to BOILER
My concern is I don't see any Boiler return protection, and all zones run at the same temp, UnderFloor, In slabs & DHW.
I also would like to monitor and control temps remotly - ie through the internet we have installed, (but No Phone)
Would you run Pri/Sec with Boiler temp through the DHW, slightly cooler on the under floor, and cooler yet for the in slab?
I have Dan's book, "Primary/Secondary made easy" and I understand it, I just don't know if this setup is right.
Thank You for your advice
