Hydronic Heated Floors for Small Cabin
I am designing a small house (750 sqft single-level) for Vancouver Island coastal climate.
The client would like to heat with hydronic in-floor – It will be an 1.5″ heated slab over a crawlspace.
I am wondering the best way to set up a system like this – whether to have an air to water heat-pump, an electric boiler, or just connect to the domestic hot water tank?
As I understand, heat pump is the most efficient, but perhaps overkill for a space this small?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
