Heat pumps and hydronic heating for 2600 sq ft Vancouver Island
I’m trying to find more information to further my understanding of sensible heat pump system for a new home build on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Our main dilemma is we lack any natural gas so we are obligated to use electricity for our main heating system.
Our plan is to do two levels with both concrete slab infloor hydronic heating for the two level 2600 sq ft total dwelling.
Has anyone had any experience with the Kelowna company Thermo Matrix? http://thermomatrix.com/ It appears that Naikoon Construction just completed Canada’s greenest house through LEED in North Vancouver and used this system within their net-zero design.
Also, is it more practical to go with air sourced heat pump or to go with a air to water heat pump for DHW and hydronic heating.
Any feed back or suggestions would be appreciated!
