    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I've heard you guys in Europe have all hydronic heating. What about a/c? Mini splits?

    Welcome to the site. Why would you leave France to go to...Vegas? (What's her name?)
    .


    The statement below is my signature and just my overall feeling towards our industry and does not necessarily pertain to you nor this thread.


    There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!

    Yes, I was surprised to see hydronic heating is not common over there...Why ?

    In France there are some split systems but they're used to cooling most part of time. Split systems has not enough power when the temperature outside is cold...

    The answer to your first question is probably because it costs more. Even though the best comfort and efficiency are possible with hydronics people buy whatever is cheap here.

    If you're going to Nevada you probably will never see hydronics outside of commercial HVAC.
