In response to Re: In-floor hot water heat.
Unless you are also considering changing the floor material to cement, I would not advise it. The wood would not conduct heat as good as concrete so the response would be slower, and the process of nailing the floor boards down would almost surely penetrate the tubing somewhere and cause a leak. The in floor system has to run at much lower temperature than the baseboard system in the rest of the house, so there would have to be a temperature reducing valve in the system to the radiant lines.

: We currently have hot water heat with baseboard radiators, which in small rooms, rob us of needed wall/floor space. We're about to remodel 2 small, second story bathrooms and are considering converting to the in-floor hot water tubing as seen on TV. (These rooms are small enough that pulling up the floor is no problem.) Has anyone had any experience with this conversion? Thanks!
