HUGH the Ducky: The Advantages of a Constant Run with the Heat Source

HUGH the Ducky takes the techno babble out of in-floor heating

If you set your heat source pump to high (pump 10 usually), and the water heater to it's lowest temperature setting that gets the job done (in the fall we ran ours at 110, but when it got cold, we cranked it up to 120). You can have it run more often.

But why would you want it to run more?

*The lower temperature setting makes the heater run quieter.

*The lower temperature water heats the floor and the house more gently and evenly.
