The radiant will be throughout the first floor - no baseboard. I will have probably 3 zones: living room and study will have carpet, foyer and dining engineered hardwood, kitchen/powder room/laundry will have vinyl. I haven't done the research necessary yet for the radiant. The radiant will be installed, hanging, between rafters in the basement. The insulating qualities of carpet and wood and vinyl are all different, but not sure if that will matter in my application. I'm budgeting three zones if it does indeed matter.
Back to the AA set-up - Greg (NY) - do you have the AA in the house? If so, can you speak to the noise level of the auger. I plan to put the boiler in a boiler room, insulated on all sides - beneath my WIFE'S kitchen (if loud enough, we'll hear it... and I'll hear about it for the life of the boiler!) Just trying to plan for it.
I don't know if I can put insulation directly above the boiler, I won't be able to run pipes for the radiant if I do... will 6 X 12 foot of space without pex matter too much if I do install the insulation over the boiler??

your AA is simply wired to your thermostat and you just let 'r run?
