Should I get over my fear of radiant heat?
I grew up in a house where everything we owned was under constant maintenance. If it could break it would. Somethings don’t change – roofs still have a limited life span, furnances as well.
I could well be being paranoid and I’m hoping I am but I’m wondering if I put in radiant heat, a pipe/pex/tubing will break and I’ll need to jackhammer through cement to get to it. I could consider running it under the floor but I wonder how much work that would be compared to air if the heat has to go through about 2″ of subfloor construction.
If you could let me know your experience I’d love to know as everyone seems to talk about radiant heat as fondly as they talk about their iphone.
