Water-cooled fan coils or water-cooled air handler
We have a 1500 sq ft (evenly divided bw 1st and 2nd floors) brick century home in Cleveland OH. We are well on our way to getting the house to Pretty Good House standards. We have an efficient hydronic heating system with homerun, low temp wall rads.
We would eventually like to lose the natural gas, but cannot afford to at the moment. We’re currently undergoing a modest renovation, and I’m roughing in HVAC for future upgrades including ducting for an ERV.
I was wondering if the GBA had recommendations on whether to (eventually) cool with either individual water-cooled fan coils or a water-cooled air handler, as this will dictate running condensate/pex or ductwork. My future dream system is based on this article:
