Hydro-Air vs. heat pumps
Hi all, what a great site..I read some advice from Dana Dorsett and was really impressed so figured I would ask.. So I am in the middle of a gut renovation and I am really having trouble deciding on an HVAC system. I live in Eastern Mass (Zone 5A). and have a 2000 sq ft bungalow. 2 beds and a bath upstairs … a soon to be large open floor plan downstairs with 1 bed 1 bath , + kitchen and living room which are all 1 area…
Im really intrigued by the hyper heat systems and am really leaning that way.. Im exploring installing the system myself if I can get the sizing / zones correct etc.. I have another HVAC guy ( actually 2) who say I should be installing a hydro air combo unit with 2 zones which will act as hotwater and heat with a condenser for AC.. both systems installed are about the same cost..
I have attached the quotes for each, just to show you sizes/ plans… Im looking for advice on which way to go.. Thank you in advance!!
