The heated solution of the anti-freeze circulated through the pipes hydronically
heats the slabs.
MATERIALS AND SYSTEMS The hydronically
heated floors are made with concrete poured over corrugated steel panels and a grid of pipes, which circulates warmed water to keep the floors toasty.
This system, although more complicated hydronically
, makes greatest use of the heat pump for both heating and cooling (Figure 7).
Architectural Benefits: In an FPIU system cooling is conveyed hydronically
to each zone.
Warm wood, translucent etched-glass panels, and a hydronically
heated concrete floor create a sophisticated yet hardworking entry for Lorrie Castellano and Roger Fisher of Palo Alto, California.
