SUBJECT: RE: In floor heating requirements

You havn't read enough yet. In your decision making,
consider that you are also choosing whether or not to
have filtered and circulating air. The energy required
to circulate the hot water is comparable to the fan
energy of some other system.
The measurable quantity of heat your house requires
is far more than your domestic hot water tank can
produce. If you can not measure your heating
requirements, find a friend who can, or learn how to do
it on the internet, BTU/hr loss formulae are there.A
person with average math background can do it.
You must know what materials are in your wall and
ceiling for insulation, your window sizes and types,
and a lot of other measurements. When you get the grand
total, you will know what BTU/hr size to buy to make up
for the calculated loss.
