Thanks for the info. We've hired our plumber and reviewed all of the options with him. Since we are not big threshold fans we decided on installing below the sub floor.

All is working out.

Thanks again. Your site is a great resource for those of us being our own contractor.

Hello Dave

Thanks for the post. There is no doubt that tying the radiant into your boiler (if it is sized properly) is the most efficient way to heat with radiant; especially if you are using as primary heat source in that room.

There are a few ways you can handle the situation. If the height of the tubing moves the floor height up, you can still do it by adding a transition between the spaces. This is generally accomplished with a threshold (either wood or stone).

If you are not a big fan of thresholds, you can add the radiant tubing from below if you have access which it sounds like you will.

Otherwise, you can go to electric radiant.

Hope this helps.

Drop a line and let us know how it is going.
