Guys & Gals,
Came across a "Louisville Tin & Stove Co. (Cozy Challenger?)" In-floor, Radiant, Gas heating unit this week in an approx 1300 Sq. Ft., 1-1/2 Story.
(62,000 Btu) Found an ANSI-1991 Ref. on one of the labels but the latest mfg. date found in the Preston's Guide for Louisville Tin was 1981?
Personally not very comfortable with safety, hot floor grille, and/or efficiency of gravity type system in maintaining comfort levels upstairs and in small laundry addition on rear of property. Thermostat control on nearby wall. There was also charring in the crawl space to some of the adjacent floor framing reportedly from a previous fire with a similar unit!?
Recommended further safety and operational analysis by a heating professional experienced with the installation of this type unit and replacement for the reasons above. House is empty and undergoing major bath & kitchen remodeling so this would be the ideal time to address this issue.
Any experience with this or similar type floor heater units out there??
