The radiant heat in my two story home is not keeping the rooms warm enough in the winter months. The home is approx 28x28 and has three zones of heat. Two zones are downstairs one for the attatched one car garage; which by the way is the warmest room of the house maybe because that is where the furnace is located and the heat from it running carries out into the garage; the other half of the downstair is the kitchen-lvingrm-half bath area (with a sliding door and three windows) and the last zone is for the whole upstairs (two bedrooms and a full bath).
The upstairs is usually very cold and the thermostat usually reads a room temp at a balmy 60-62 degrees and appears to struggle to keep it at that temp. i have given some thought to abbandoning the radiant heat in the upstairs and trying to convert it to hw baseboard heat but leaving the downstairs as radiant can that be done with the system i have in place?
The boch heating unit looks like a glorified hot water heater turned into furnace to me -- but i'm as green as the grass about such things. Ideas? what are my options?
