max radiant temps

From the sound of your system description, you must have done your homework and did a heat loss and design calculations. That information should tell you what temps to run, but the most accurate is to use a thermal temp gun and check your floor temp. With hardwood, a surface temp should be about 80 degrees. This will prevent drying out the wood to the point of damaging it. I've seen 85 with no signs of problems, but prefer the lower setting if it does the job and heats the space. Adjust the surface temp to design specs and you should be OK
