Hydronic Heating and Cooling Methods

These some technical drawings I found that are the three main applications of hydronic heating and cooling systems.
  • System cools through radiative heat transfer by keeping a water and glycol mix within the tubes at a temperature of 65 degrees.
  • Ventilation is important to manage indoor humidity and air quality.
  • Heating of the water is necessary for hydronic heating. Possibilities for solar collection for heat.
  • Typical Materials for the systems above include:
1. Panel System - aluminum - panels carry tubes and can be surface mounted or embedded in floors, walls, or ceilings. Possibility for continuous interior surface.

2. Capillary Tube System - embedded in plastic, gypsum, or plaster - consists of a mat of small closely spaced tubes embedded in walls and ceilings. Usually larger arteries connect to this which help with a differentiation of scale and allows for interesting nuances.
3. Concrete Core System - concrete or heavy masonry - probably not the best option for the fabrication. usually consists of a whole floor or wall.

  2. The only times I don't crack my windows is if I'm in bear territory where they've learned to break into cars, like Yosemite. I also carry a CO2 alarm (and bear spray).
