I like the idea of that.  But I don't have a boiler!

Looks like your doing a good job. What is your barrier material made of. This looks like it would be as difficult as well. I have had both shoulder joints replaced so this would have to be subbed out for me.

That barrier is basically construction paper with a fiber mesh and foil laminated to it. Once you get going its not that bad. If Ihad this subbed out it would have cost $12K I'm betting possibly more...

Yea, that sure looks likes some hurting work, my neck couldn't handle all that.

I thought I had been busy doing my bathroom.

I know that radiant heat PEX is slighlty different than regular PEX, higher quality than standard PEX so it can handle the heat.

In my book it's smart to have the temp. set back a bit so you have some "scramble time" if something goes wrong and the heat starts rising. I guess I've always been a "what if something goes wrong" kind of thinker, and I try to plan ahead just in case.

Well the floor is carrying the temps up to a very comfortable 74° and has only come on twice since I fired it up around noon!! Very very comfortable ! I like it so far :-)
Oh the actual floor temp is 80° according to the sensor.

You sound like a happy camper. :thumbs:

Sure is nice having a warm floor.

I bet you're planning a bit of a rest for your back now.

Well the new floor heat is working and has been since Dec.31 . got the floors set at just under 80° on the hardwoods and 81° on the tile, air temp is 75° throughout the house and base board only runs on second floor a few times when it was below 0° Friday night and Saturday. So far so good.
