Country Custom Home
This custom-built home was built for a family 15 minutes outside of Sherwood Park. It features countless upgrades including over-sized windows, 9 ft. basement with cork floors for added comford, 8' doors throughout, a glass railing balcony off the back, a huge bar in the basement, a state-of-the-art heating system and much, much more. In-floor heating, R-30 insulation in the walls and R-50 insulation in the attic to help with the home's efficiency.
The boiler system consists of a Trinity LX 150 96.1% efficient boiler, which includes a stainless steel heat exchange and a digital touch screen. The 75 gal Bradford White Aero stainless steel indirect hot water tank is heated by the boiler on priority and provides endless hot water.
For heating the home there is a HE70 energy saving high velocity blower unit and air conditioner. The unit is utilized so that smaller duct work can be used and has less intrusion into the living space of the home. The blower unit quietly operates 24/7 to circulate air in the home.
The piping on the wall is a primary loop with an expansion tank, low water cutoff for emergency purposes, with a Taco 4900 air scrubber to remove air out of the boiler system. There are Grundfos circulation pumps pushing fluid through the system and Uponor manifolds with balancing valves for the in-floor heating system. A recirculating pump on the domestic hot water circulates the hot water throughout the home to achieve hotw ater in 3-5 seconds in each tap in the home. Have a look at the boiler room photos and you be the judge of quality work. The system is a very efficient and economical way of heating the home and the domestic hot water.
“Reid Contracting built our house top to bottom. Through out the whole process we were totally impressed with how things went. Everything was handled in a very professional manor and in a timely fashion. I must say things went smoothly and everything fell into place as it was planned. Now that we have moved in and are living in our house we are so pleased with the finished project. I would definitely recommend Reid Contracting for any project big or small.”
