Water heater or floor heater

If a water heater rated as a heater for water is used to heat your water and another separate water heater rated for boiler use is available, then the boiler-rated water heater at 15 psig would heat the floor if it is a natural gas or oil water heater.

I certainly wouldn't want my drinking water stored in the floor for a summer, or have a line snap at 50 psig city water pressure.

If the water heater is LP or electric, then you might just install electric radiant in the floor for the same operating cost.
