    Nice work! How big is that place? As always it's nice that the architect left you so much room to work with, god forbid they gave you a few feet of the solarium space.

    Yes, its about 10,000 square feet of incredibly luxurious living space on Manhattan's Upper East Side owned by one of the Finance world's biggest names.

    And yes, RobG, this is the smallest partitioned room in the house. The shoe closets are much bigger...

    Why so much "firepower"? Are there both radiators and radiant floor heating?

    I can see it's not your work but it looks like someone insulated the DWV pipes? Soundproofing maybe?
  • JohnNY

    Yes, there is radiant heat and perimeter fin-tube. The waste piping insulation throughout the home is indeed sound insulation.
    Notice the "indirect" air intake? I like that design by the engineers.

    Such a small space. My boiler room is 11 x 14.

    John, is that a city multi system heat pump for the place? What zone controls are those? I see you are using the AE200 central control, right?

    "City Multi"?
    No, those are two Aerco Modulex boilers. I'm not sure what control that is. @Wirenut did it for me and the HVAC contractor and brought it all together for the BMSystem.

    Looks like a programmable relay type PLC, similar to the Teco. ...and a whole batch of Tekmar stats.

    That definitely looks like a City multi control on the bottom right. Of the control panel.

    Isn't Citi-Multi the unit that is designed for homes or buildings with allot of glass on multiple sides of the building so that you can run heat and cooling at the same time without dumping the excess heat or cool outside but just displacing it into the other spaces in the building to combat solar gain?

    It's for all buildings. But it's nice because you don't have to run VAV systems and electric or hot water reheats.
    It's just less equipment no air handlers not boilers not chillers.
    Although boilers hot water base board for perimetor heat his never a bad Idea
