Thoughts on Runtal Electric Radiant Panels
I’ve learned so much here but I haven’t seen this discussed before. A quick search finds some talk about Runtal’s hydronic baseboards. But I have a client who is very interested in Runtal’s electric radiant panels. I’ve never seen one in person and can’t find much info, good or bad, about them.
The house is in Sebastopol, CA. 1967 vintage with 2×4 walls and lousy fg batts installed then. We’ve remodeled the kitchen and bathrooms and we’ve air-sealed the ceilings and blew deep cellulose in the attic space, air-sealed the rim joists and floor penetrations and replaced the old aluminum windows, but we aren’t addressing the exterior walls at this point. There will be a 9.6 kw solar array providing more than enough power for a conscientious retired couple. They would like to use the electric radiant panels.
What do you think?
Much thanks in advance,
