Fuel conservation and energy efficiency is essential with today’s high energy costs. Integrated Solar Heating is becoming one of the most efficient sources of heating. With the addition of a Hydronic solar heating system integrated into the space heating system, Legrand Construction’s homes provide the comfort of Infloor heating and drastically reduced energy bills. Hydronic heating uses water to move heat. Instead of heating air which results in loss of heat/cooling, water is circulated through tubings in the floor or convectors in the walls which heat or cool the surfaces directly. Therefore, Infloor heating is more efficient because it eliminates duct losses as ducts can leak heated air into unheated spaces which raises heating costs.
Each Hydronic solar system is custom designed by one of the foremost solar heating engineers in the country, utilizing advanced Tekmar controls, a high efficiency on demand boiler and high efficiency Hydronic solar panels. Tekmar controls are superior to other systems because their intelligent design eliminates temperature swings by adjusting the heating/cooling system according to inside and outside temperatures.
