Not the Adobe page 30 rather the actual page 30 of the manual..... they are clearly labeled on the bottom of each page.

But if you like ... Sad Blue .... then go to Adobe page 32. .... or you can keep deflecting.

This thread has been lost and gone beyond being civil .....besides I'm not going further any more discussion with you and your insults and continued attempts to discredit folks..... I've said before and will say it again .... there's no reasoning with you ..... you're unreasonable.

There's no need to quibble about some manufacturers's carfefully worded manual for DIY installation by their marketing department. In almost every case they will include careful wording such as ..... may not perform .... or could result ... may or may not happen .... just to cover their butts.
So ... yes .... follow the manufacturers outlined proceedure.

see you're up to version 3 after been responded to x2.

its the professional installation manual.
its the same page, page 30 of the manual page 32 of 84 of the adobe document.
the first picture is a SANDWICH recessed install between joist supported sandwich over a floor, the second is the chicken wire supported install which has NO insulation contact.

read the caption:

"Insulation board is used to SUPPORT the Onix tubing and to provide a thermal break TO THE FLOOR BELOW. Onix must be in direct contact with the underside of the subfloor."

That illustration is of a SANDWICH INSTALLATION.

both of the illustrations are from the top installations requiring ripping out the original subfloor to expose joists in the area. neither is applicable to the OP, that type of install with rigid board insulation is also much lower efficiency. there is only supportive contact it is not smothered, it is board not batt, it is a solution of LAST RESORT. that one ends up losing up to 45 percent in the design program.

PROMISES PROMISES you started this with your wild assumptions and unsupported first response then started questioning Sabo (Mike) and me and challenged to support it. it was supported. then you who can't read and follow tried to justify your unsupported claims and you peppered the entire board over the last days with insults on over 20 different topic strings.

You'll never admit you stepped in your own DOO-DOO and then stuck your DOO-DOO coated foot in your mouth. Instead you vomit your wild assertions and rude insults and commentary then play all high and mighty.

keep on editing, hope all your posts end up like ASCs.

you're the unreasonable one. we're talking about the same page. you just can't admit a platform on slab sandwich versus a sleeper sandwich nor what a bleeping SANDWICH IS.

you civil? your posts on this and others in the last several days have been anything BUT civil. you stalking, rude, harassing, jerk.

The cost is going to depend on the system you install, the type of installation that is used, and the equipment you have to buy. Might I suggest you start here http://www.radiantec.com/installation-manual/index.php They have information, installation manuals you can down load and on line pricing.
