I have a 1920's bungalow in Michigan. I'm in the planning stages of converting the raw attic into workshop/living space.
The house has a forced air system with a new high efficiency gas furnace. There is no ductwork for the attic, of course, so i need to put in a separate system. I'm looking at mini-boilers, with radiators. There is already a gas line up there, and plumbing lines for a bathroom which i will be using to put in a half bath.
I haven't been able to find much info on installing a hydronic system for an attic. I assume the mini boiler and pump would need to go near the existing water and gas lines, but what would that look like in terms of the connections? And can I run the lines for the radiators behind the attic knee walls?
any help appreciated, thanks!
