I live in a house with radiant floor heating on the ground floor and hot water radiators on the second floor for heating. We also have an HRV ventilation system (running 2 x 6" dia ducts supply and return).
We are looking into what options are avaialble for adding:
- some sort of humidifaction system, and
- air conditioning.
We have not used AC in the past and are only looking to cool upstairs by a few degrees C and remove some of the humidity.
Here are my ponderings:
- what humidifiers are available for this type of system? (makes and models) Only one I found was Aprilaire 350, is this a good unit?
- can we use the same duct work as for the Ventilation system? (ie perhaps use both the 6" ducts as supply for the AC in summer time) We would never run both the ventilation and AC at the same time.
- can we use the same duct work for the humidification?
Thanks for any advice or leads,
