In response to Re: Hot Water Heat is Nice, But........
: I really like hot water heat. However, the wall space taken up by the baseboard unit is unacceptable. Now that I'm remodling, I have the opportunity to do something about it. My problem is, I don't know what options are available. I would assume some brilliant soul has invented an in-floor unit to replace the conventional fixture, but I can't find it. Anybody have any clues?

: Thanks for your help.

Robert, There are a couple of options. WE take the heating element out of the baseboard and install it in between the floor joists in the ceiling. Also pex pipeing is used in the ceiling for heating. 3/4" pex pipe is strapped up to the ceiling and looped between the floor joists and tied back into the system. There are some good heating sites on the net.
