How It Works
How Heat From The Maxim Gets To Your Home
- The Maxim can be located up to 500 feet away from the home or building being heated.
- Heated water from the Maxim is pumped to the home or building through insulated,
underground ThermoPEX piping - the most efficient way to move heat over distances.
- The Maxim is designed to work with any existing heating system. A heat exchanger or
direct circulation conveys the heat into a forced-air furnace, radiant baseboard, or
radiant floor heating system. This gives you normal thermostatic temperature control.
- The Maxim can provide heat for all your domestic hot water by adding a water-to-water
heat exchanger. You can turn off your hot water heater and save $30 to $80 or more per
In addition to heating an entire home or building, the same Maxim unit can also heat
other buildings such as a garage, workshop, shed, greenhouse or barn. It can even heat a
swimming pool or hot tub.
