      Hello,

      Can anyone tell me why my radiant floor won’t work unless I have the mixing valve fully open.
      when I mix it down from 180 degees to 110 degrees
      the room starts getting colder and colder..When the mixing valve is open fully the boiler can hardly keep up … not very efficent..

      Thanks Dan

      P.s Would I be better to get a plumber or a heating contractor to take a look at this problem.. dgulley@rogers.com

      It sounds like the piping in the floor is inadequate. Or possibly the floor covering is too insulated with carpet etc. Check with your installer or try another one.
