    Hydronic-hot water tank-forced air

    Thank you for the replies. When I spoke with a tech at First Co., I was told that, except for servicing, the supply valves should always remain open to prevent stagnation. I still need to look into adding a heat exchanger to separate the space heating from the dhw.

    Water hammer after plumber came

    A couple of week ago a plumber came out for a couple of minor things--unplugged dishwasher drain and checked out shutoff valve (only had to tighten the packing nut) on the toilet and showed me how to turn off water at the street, cuz our main shutoff is frozen. He then did a few minor repairs...
