    Little project we just completed!

    I wish we had more nice little projects like this one.


    It was a rehab. of a 900 square foot row home in our local town of Media, Pennsylvania. For the cooling portion we installed two 1 1/2 ton Unico ACB blowers paired with two 1 1/2 ton R-410A Carrier Air Conditioners. (There was no interior walls on the first floor and minimal on the second floor to allow one unit to provide cooling for the entire house.)


    And the heating we kept pretty simple. We designed the panel radiators to operate off of the same temperature as our in floor radiant heating. This was a maximum of 130 degrees at design. This way we didn't have to worry about any sort of extra mixing devices. The Buderus RC-10 takes care of our turn down! And just in case we installed slab sensors on both radiant floors to protect them from over heating!

    That's some awsome work Jamie


    Your design sounds just as impressive.

    What more can I say? You did it right.

    Jamie,

    Neat!

    Thw way you use the blue walls to hide various supply and return pipes, etc. is certainly a great way to reduce the visual clutter. Painting them blue is a nice touch also!

    At first, I was wondering where you were hiding the expansion tank, then I saw it later mounted up high. Is there a particular reason to mount the expansion tank there rather than anywhere else? Full-port ball valves, iso-flanges around the circulators, and that nifty clear P-trap round out the picture... who makes the P-trap?

    Retrofitting insulation around the IDWH supply and return piping might be a good idea. Otherwise you'll have an year-round radiator on your hands. Insulating the other piping may or may not be cost effective and/or a great HO project.

    On the AC side, I am interested to find out how well the 3 tons of capacity mirrors the heat gain. Does this property have massive south-facing windows or did you simply install the smallest split ACs you could find?

    Dan,

    Thanks for the compliment. It’s always nice when a project comes out so well and doesn’t take that long to complete. It was a fun project also. Everyone in the company got to do what they liked best on this one. I got to pipe it and I don't get to do that often anymore.

    As far as the Unico systems we have been using them ever since I can remember. Dad had always been a big Unico supporter. We have tried other mini tube systems but the Unico's we can make quite. I really like their new advanced control boards which have the soft start and stop feature.
