Wall mounted hydronic heat exchanger

andymar Member Posts: 25
I am installing gas hot water b/b heat in an addition. Two story 1440 total sq. foot in N.J. second floor on different zone. I need to get heat into a small first floor foyer with limited wall space, 20 or so inches at the max. Foyer opens from exterior side door, open door into kitchen and other door into unheated stairway leading to basement. Heat calc. calls for 5 feet of true baseboard however that may include heating stairway, of which I will not. I am interested to know who makes a wall mounted, baseboard type (fins and guts) heat exchanger . Not too concerned about height. To be installed in loop, 3/4 inch pex, with rest of floor which includes large living room and kitchen. Really cant fit a kickboard type anywhere but in kitchen.

    Turbonics or Beacon Morris make small convectors and fan coils you can mount on a wall. Goggle them

    How about a bathroom style panel radiator?
    Buderus and Biasi make one that is 36" high x 16 wide.
    Pipe it as a mono flow.

    The Buderus looks like a nice product. Through research I just realized I could purchase a kick plate type unit and have it mounted flush on a wall, facing up, with a wall cabinet housing to surround it. Makes sense to me. Thanks for the help people. I believe Beacon Morris makes them both. I think it's the K42 or K84, 12 to 19 inches wide. The W42 is 16 wide.

    Hydronic Alternatives. Have a look at their selection of panel radiators.
