I am exploring the options for replacing the forced air heating system in a clients home. I am specifying the 86k btu TT Prestige Excellence with indirect DHW for a house with a design heat loss of about 54k.
The quandary is do we tear down the finished basement ceiling and install Joist Trak under the squeaky 1927 vintage subfloor and 3/4" hardwood flooring / carpet / tile or put in Runtal or Buderus wall mounted radiators?
My concerns are:
1. Does underfloor radiant work well enough with 1 1/2" of wood on top?
2. What will it do to the flooring in terms of expansion and contraction?
3. Will wall mount radiators with thermostatic valves be any more or less efficient at emittance?
4. Will the Joist Trak system make noise as it expands and contracts?
