    I am wanting to heat my garage and my house both using my boiler and in floor tubes. They are both set up to there seperate manifolds but now I am ready to figure out how to do the zones. What actuators would be suggested? I’m assuming I can put a actuator on each manifold and thermostats for each any help would be great this is my first attempt at heating my garage

    Boiler brand and model? Tubing both garage and house? Tube size, loop lenghts and how many each zone? How many zones in each space?

    You would want 24v ac actuators that you local plumbing supply company recommends. Any problems you'll have a fast and easy source for parts or replacement should a problem occur.

    In addition to fitters30 questions;
    • Is this new construction or the home is already occupied?
    • Are the three zones currently working or just one or two of the three?
    • Will it be using only one circulator?
    • What type of thermostat used for the home, Smart WiFi, etc.
    • Is the garage only to have in floor heating?
    • Is there an air conditioning unit for the house? If yes what thermostat controls it?
    • Do you have any experience or knowledge with low voltage wiring for HVAC?
    • How warm do you expect the garage needs to be? Kept above freezing, just to take the chill out or toasty warm for a workshop, etc.
