    Electric radiant

    These things sat on top of the drywall and radiated heat downward.

    Unfortunately they had a habit of shorting out.

    Here is what the look like 35 years later.

    It is just bare wires imbedded in drywall.

    Snakes

    My friend had that in a ceiling from the 70's. He had blacksnakes living above it, it kept them warm all year long. Imagine two copulating blacksnakes falling out from under the fireplace mantle and onto the family room floor on Thanksgiving day. There is a price for great heat. (I'm not talking about electric bills).

    Rare?

    Apparently these are a bit rare.

    The system was mostly nonfunctioning. The scary part is that most of the panels were disintegrating and they were wired 240 volt but only switched on one leg. All those wires were hot all the time. Not a problem unless someone touched one. No snakes though.

    Gypsum 120 degree limit

    Wonder if that's why the drywall disintegrated like that, and if that's where gyp manufacturers got their temp limit from.
