In response to Re: Hot water heater for hydronic heat
I am using a hot water heater for heatoing a "mother-in -law" apartment. I am using an older 30 gal AO Smith, dedicated solely for the spacial heat. I am using the older unit for two reasons. 1. The 30 gal means less water to keep heated. It still has the 33,000 BTU heat unit for recovery time is reduced. And 2, it was manufactured prior to 1986 so the temp has the ability to heat to 160 F.

It has been installed for almost three years as of this date and has proven to be extremely efficient.
