A hydronic retrofit for the Anchor Homestead

March 6, 2013
Months ago, when the ModCon crew left the farm house after the initial visit, they already had a pretty good idea of what the new system would look like after the overhaul.

The 29 radiators needed to be isolated, each with their own flow rates. With a mix of large, vertical radiators, convection radiators, and cast-iron baseboard, there was no one-size-fits-all flow rate that would accommodate each application of heat. The heat emitters were broken into six zones, each guarded with a 1-in. Taco Zone Sentry zone valve.
