Brief overview of the project
We used Caleffi mixing valves, zone valves, air separators, dirt separators and a commercial air vent for the buffer tank.
The system is designed to provide radiant heat to a large ski home. There are lots of zones so a buffer tank was used to limit short cycling. They even installed some radiant behind decorative stone in the stairwells. The house has a lot of vertical space between the three floors with an open central staircase, so warm floors and walls will maintain a more even temperature between the levels.
The building is full house retrofit. Existing steel beams made running heating lines harder across the home. They will eventually have a second mechanical room with additional snowmelt equipment.
The house is still under construction.
