Infloor hookup costs

Nobody will give a straightforward answer because the scope of the job could go from very simple to ultra complex depending upon the design and the rest of the variables. Don't be fooled into thinking that all rooms are going to require the exact same tube spacing, or that you can "hook up" to your hot water heater. I've seen a rash of ruined new homes because of Radiant Done Wrong. It might behoove you get an expert design done by someone outside of the materials sales game.

    infloor heating costs

    I am putting in 17 300 ft 1/2inch loops wirsbo hepex plus.

    What would be a ballpark estimate of costs for the pumps, valves and other hardware for hookup for this size system?

    Thanks.

    More questions than answers...

    Could be anything without knowing the structure, boiler, radiant floor type, or control strategy. Are you wondering what the installed cost of the boiler room equipment is? I am sure a contractor will perform an estimate for the rest if you are installing the tube. That is a relatively common situation considering the cost of labor.

    What's the heat loss?

    As a rule, we don't discuss pricing here on this site. what may be high in my area may be rock bottom for another.

    Why would you like to know?

    300' is really pushing it for 1/2" pex.

    Even if it wasnt't [rightfully] inappropriate to discuss costs here, the information you gave is utterly inadequate for anyone to give even a "ballpark" figure.

    I'm not looking for an exact dollar amount. In general, for 17 zones, not including boiler cost, are motors, valves, connectors, etc going to be about the same as pex cost, twice as much? Just trying to get a general idea here.
    Thanks.

    costs

    Along time ago I stopped giving bids to those individuals that are "just shopping". My customers call and I respond.
    If someone comes to me from a referal, I respond. With the prices as volitile today in the "parts of a system" I could be way off just by using last weeks copper fitting prices. 17 zones? sounds like a bigger job, who laid it out? does that person give you a price? I'll even ask someone if they got an estimate yet from someone else, if the answer is yes then my "estimate" will cost you. My time is valuable too.
