Are you aware of the potential dangers of excessive EMF exposure? Some studies show a link between exposure to EMF and an increased rate of health problems. This is scary to think about, especially when you realize that we are exposed to EMF almost 24/7!

In order to limit exposure to the radiation produced by household electronics, this home was designed with EMF (electromagnetic field) protection as the number one priority.

To be used in this home, our components had to be tested by the EMF Center to ensure that they don’t emit a potentially harmful amount of radiation. Messana mControls was the only HVAC control platform on the market that passed EMF tests for this house. One key reason is that our system uses 24V DC instead of 24V AC which is commonly used by other control platforms.

This home uses Chiltrix heat pumps as an energy source and a solar thermal system for domestic hot water. Our control platform manages two hydronic radiant floor heating systems, hydronic towel warmers, hydronic baseboard heaters, and Mitsubishi fan coils for cooling! A lot to manage here, but Messana mControls can handle it all!

We used a three-temperature system for this job because of the various hydronic components involved. The highest temperature water is used for the towel warmers and baseboard heaters. The other two temperature levels are for the two radiant floor heating systems (the staple-up floor heating system uses a slightly higher water temperature than the standard radiant floor heating system).

If you have clients concerned about EMF exposure, make sure you have them look into Messana Hydronic Technologies for all of their climate control needs!
