Air conditioning house with radiant floor heat
Does anyone have an energy efficient cost effective way to air condition a house with radiant floor heat. We are currently in the building phase of our house which I hope to make as air tight as possible. I was considering the typical HVAC system until my curiosity was sparked by installation of a radiant floor heating system. However do I need to put in conventional ductwork with an air handler for the air conditioning system? Mini splits are one option I guess, however I am working within a budget. I am hoping there is a cost effective way to have both in floor heating and air conditioning. If anyone has experience along these lines, please me know what you did for A/C. Thanks.
