    Question regarding Hydoronic air supplementing radiant heat. The condensers are spec'ed to be the high SEER Lennox condensers. The plan is to utilize hydro air to supplement the radiant heat. Delivered First Co. handlers that have a top SEER rating of 13-14 while the condensers are approx. 19-21. Does Lennox offer a air handler that can accommandate the hydronic heat.

    You can put a hydro coil on any air handler.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Would a lennox paired air handler be better to get the most out of the high SEER condensors.

    I would get someone else to do your specing. Matching the equipment is the proper way to go. A HW coil can be added to the supply duct for heat. An aquastat is commonly used to bring on the fan.

    Why do you think the company would order first co. air handlers if we specified the Lennox 21 seer condensors. Should I request they change the air handlers before there installed.
