Radiators and fresh air/AC
We have a wonderful 1913 home that we are going to be doing a deep energy retrofit on. We really love the hot water radiators for heating. For their traditional look and great warmth. We will be installing a fresh air system and AC. We realize that any AC system we install will also have the capability to heat also. Are we crazy for keeping the radiators? We realize that with the much improved thermal performance of the house we will not need as much heat as the radiators produced so had been thinking of running reduced water temp through them.
Are we clinging to something that is just a relic and should be removed? Either we just haven’t searched well enough but the predominate articles / responses we see are to not have both systems IE get rid of radiators.
We are in Wenatchee Washington so 5b.
