What PEX is best to use for your application?

The answer will depend on many factors, such as your budget, skill level and whether you have already bought any tools or materials. Wondering what PEX A, B and C letters are? They are used to identify the manufacturing process.
PEX-A is the most expensive of all 3 types and other than slightly greater flexibility than the other (2) types, there are no significant advantages of this type over the other two. Great for all radiant applications easier to install for a person who is a novice due to greater flexibility.

PEX-B Houseneeds elects not to sell PEX-B because we prefer the properties of PEX-A and PEX-C over the PEX-B.

PEX-C is the latest addition to PEX line and price-wise is less expensive than PEX-A. Unfortunately, the cross-linking process for this type creates the least amount of bonds (vs. the PEX-A) therefore, the flexibility of the this product is less than PEX-A. If the PEX tubing becomes kinked during handling, it can be re-formed to its original shape by heating it with an electric heat gun to a temperature of approximately
275F.The tubing will pale slightly when heated and become pliable as the shape restores. Do not overheat, and allow to completely cool undisturbed. Otherwise,  you may have to cut out the kinked section and fix it with a mechincal union. PEX-C can be used with a large variety of installation methods. Our PEX-C is Heat and Domestic Potable Water Approved.

Houseneeds sells the following heating PEX products:

Heatlink PEX-A color is white and is an excellent product for the price. Great for all heating applications. Available in 1/2", 5/8", & 3/4".   Click here for technical information.

HousePEX PEX-A color is red and is priced a little higher than the Heatlink. Great for all heating applications. The tubing coil has an inside diameter exceeding 15 inches, so that memory-effect of its coiling is minimal. The running ft. markings start from 0 at the inside of each coil so that the installer will always know how tubing is left in the coil. It also has a thin coating of PE on top of the barrier in order to reduce noise when installed in joist applications and Aluminum Heat Transfer Plates. Available in 3/8", 1/2", 5/8". 3/4", 1" sizes. Click here for technical information.  

HousePEX PEX-C PEX color is white almost as flexible as our PEX-A PEX-A tubing. Perfect for those underfloor heating applications as well as Domestic Potable Plumbing systems. Heat and Domestic Potable Water Approved.
Manufactured in USA. Available in 3/8", 1/2", & 5/8" sizes.

Valves for Myson SX & SD Panel and Decor Radiators

The Myson SX, SD and Decor radiators have British Standard straight female pipe threads NOT NPT which means you will need to purchase two conversion valves for each radiator.  the Myson valves are designed to work with the Myson radiators.

The most popular valve is the LKD16AN used mainly for when your pipes are coming out of the wall or floor. This ½ inch Preset Flow Rate Angle Valve Body with no cap is an Adjustable Flow Valve only without thermostatic control and connects to the Myson radiator 1/2 inch British thread with a wrench and 1/2 Inch Copper Pipe with a compression fitting. Please keep in mind the BSP threads are a straight running thread NOT tapered like NPT.

Use the LKD16SN  only if your pipes are going straight into the radiator from side to side.

If you would like to control the temperature room by room than the Myson 2TRV2HD Valve Head has a sensor element which consists of a liquid-filled capsule with an immersed bellows and push rod. As the ambient temperature rises, the liquid in the sensor’s metal capsule expands and compresses the bellows, causing the integral push rod to close the valve. As the room’s ambient temperature drops, the liquid in the capsule contracts, allowing the bellows to retract the push rod to open the valve.  Another special feature of the Myson 2TRV2HD Valve Head is its two integral locking pins, allowing you to lock the temperature at one setting or limit it to a specific range of temperatures. Setting Ambient Range  is 46°F to 83°F.

Myson 1/2 inch Thermostatic Radiator Valve - Standard Vertical Angle Body Only - 2TRV1/2AN              Myson 1/2 inch Thermostatic Radiator Valve - Inverted Angle Body Only - 2TRV1/2IN           Myson 1/2 Standard Straight Body Only - 2TRV1/2SN

2TRV1/2AN               2TRV1/2IN                 2TRV1/2SN

Myson products are designed to be installed by professional trades people. Myson instructions are meant to be thorough; however it is assumed that the installer has the appropriate technical knowledge related to building codes, standard trade practices, and proper use of the tools of the trade. Should a homeowner without such knowledge or skill take it upon him/herself to attempt the installation, Myson will not be responsible for any damages, injuries or unsatisfactory performance of the Myson product used.  Using other than the Myson specific valves would void the Myson warranty.

Eskabe Direct Vent Gas Wall Heaters NOW AVAILABLE

Eskabe Direct Vent Gas Wall Heaters vent through any outside wall (up to 10 inches thick). Eskabe Heaters use outside air for combustion and the burnt gases are vented outside. Eskabe Heaters burn efficiency is approximately 80%, so you get excellent value for your fuel dollar. Each Eskabe gas wall heater INCLUDES the vent kit, so the only thing you need to do is cut a round hole through the wall (up to 10 inches thick), install the vent kit, and hook up a gas line. No special insulation or fire-proofing is required for the vent kit. Eskabe gas wall heater uses a dual-wall pipe that exhausts the hot gases through the center pipe while bringing in cooler outside air through the outside pipe.
Eskabe Heaters sealed combustion chamber insures a safe performance by keeping separated the heated air from gases produced through combustion, which are expelled outside. Fresh air from outdoors feeds the combustion constantly. All Eskabe gas vented wall heaters are fitted with Safety Valve that shuts off the appliance gas supply in the event that the pilot burner goes off or a gas failure occurs. Eskabe Propane Wall Heaters and Gas Wall Heaters are safe and efficient.  Electricity not required, can be used as emergency heat during power outages.
