The AA will go down a lot easier than that Clayton came out. Are you putting radiators/baseboards in? Or just using a water to air hx?

For now I'm gonna use a water to air heat exchanger for the main level. But since I currently don't have any warm air ducts upstairs I wanna run a line to 2 radiators, one for each bedroom up there.

Also, I need to run a line to my new building. I'm on the fence whether to use a heat exchanger or radiators for it. Radiators will take up valuable floor space, heat exchangers could be put under the floor.. I get the impression that a radiator system would be stop and go water flow while a heat exchanger system could be constant circulation. The thermostat just clicks on a blower when heat is needed. I can harvest the two Clayton blowers for it.

What's your thoughts on that?
