Integrated space / water heating systems provide an alternative to traditional heating systems
Integrated space/water heating systems combine your home’s heating needs with household hot water requirements, saving money on total system installation. A single boiler is used requiring only one combustion burner and only one vent. Often these systems employ an insulated external storage tank with a high efficiency low mass boiler to first heat the water. The system then passes hot water through a fan coil (similar to your car’s radiator) and blows the heat around the house in a warm air distribution system, similar to a conventional furnace. These systems are most effective in cooler climates, or when used with high efficiency boilers.
