    I have radiant heat installed in the ceiling of the basement.
    I will be dry walling the ceiling soon, is there any special considerations that I should do.
    I am thinking about the heat and the taped joints etc.
    Would it be better to use fiberglass tape instead of paper?
    Is there a special type of mud that should be used?

    There's nothing special to be done- the mud & tape have the same thermal tolerances as the wallboard itself.
