New heating zone with runtal radiators
Hey guys, just found this site while searching for help online, and was hoping for a little advice.
I need to retrofit a new heating zone loop in my basement due to a leak somewhere in the concrete slab. Its a finished basement with a finished floor on top of concrete foundation. The current zone is 3/4 copper and slant/fin baseboard radiators. Due to the construction of the house, I can't simply run new lines to the existing baseboard, so I'm thinking about using high output runtal radiators in locations that are convenient to pipe to using pex. The plan is a little unorthodox, but I'm hoping to make it work. The attached photo is the path that I pretty much need to follow, as I can't run pipes through the main living area without a tremendous amount of work.
I'm far from a plumbing expert, so I guess my questions are... Can I make this work? What is the best way to run the pex?
