        I’m looking at hydronic heating for my slab and the sales guy reckons I can do same to my 1st floor solid timer floor.

        Being a 19mm solid timber floor would be an insulator to heat rather than conductor.

        Anyone nailed up hydronic to timber floor?

        thanks – Vu

          I saw on this old house on top of floor the have 1/2″ wood routed out to receive pvc pipe and then covered over with fl. Under the floor between joist they have a rack that goes between loist to hold pvc up next to floor and an aluiun shield to cover it up to hold heat. Go to this old house and ask them and they will show you.

            It works, but not as well heating in a concrete slab floor, wood just not have the mass for a nice even long lasting heat.
