Oompa Loompa

We have a Munchkin modulating boiler to run our hot water supply (for both domestic hot water and for the radiant floor). The boiler is kinda like an on-demand boiler, except that it monitors the temp of the water coming back into the unit from the radiant system and pumps in more hot water as needed to maintain the temp. You can manually adjust the flow to each loop to adjust the floor's temp in different zones if you're so inclined. (I think there's something crazy like 2 total gallons of water in the whole radiant system.) And the tank underneath is a small storage tank for high-demand times. The mechanical room is getting crowded...

HVAC guys are going sloooooooowwwww, but hopefully we'll be up and running by the end of the week, and our gas tank can get installed on Monday.
