I'm planning an addition to the house, and I was thinking about using radiant heating in the new space. Is any of this a DIY project? People tell me that it's expensive. How hard can it be?
It's just PEX tubing attached to the underside of the subfloor. So long as you don't kink or puncture the tubing.........whats the big deal? Can I just run it off of a nearby baseboard line, or do I need to tie it into the boiler? I've put my own copper baseboard line in my living room. (SLANTFIN 80) I sweated the joints with some solder leftover from my old man that he had used in the 1970s.
It wasn't so tough. I Just gotta remember to shut the water off before I cut into any pipe. (OOOPS!)
