Radiant or Forced Air Minneapolis
Ok guys what do I do here is my situation haven't started building yet but this is what I'm dealing with...
-80x52x20 slab on grade well insulated barn type building going with a BSC type building approach
-52x35 two story home inside open floor plan with bedrooms upstairs, remaining 45x52 for shop/garage space heated to around 35-40 degrees in the winter
-my wife doesn't want ductless minis doesn't like the look
-there is natural gas available on the property was thinking of doing a boiler for both dhw and radiant heating
-two stage/speed regular natural gas furnace
-Polaris/Phoenix type electric hot water heater for both space heating/dhw
Either way I'm going to need a a/c unit with ducting as I can't see how else to do it without using minisplits and those are out of the question
i pay 11 cents/kwh and 69 cents/m cubed for gas any help would be appreciated thx
