I spent hours and hours on the website and I know it saved me many thousands of dollars and just as many headaches. I'm extremely proud of my house and have already been asked to put it in a home show. I estimate that I have amassed at least $175,000 equity for my efforts.

Will someone tell me whether heat transfer plates for under-joist radiant heat are really necessary. Also, as far as price goes, I had all of the internet companies, like Radiantec bid my system--the lowest was $8,500. Then I went to a local plumbing wholesaler and went to the manager and just asked him straight out if I could buy at wholesale prices. He said alright and told me he goes through Vanguard. Vanguard designed the system and the whole thing will cost me $5,000.

Ted, you really need to do a heat load calc to answer that question. Also, the type of floor covering you end up using and water temp (based on your load calc) in your system will make a difference.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, Vanguard did a very detailed load calc on my home. I had just heard from quite a few people that the plates are noisy and not really needed.

Ted,

I'm sure your aware of this but keep in mind that radiant is exactly that, it is not limited to heating your upstairs and will be heating the floor below from the ceiling. The baffles are designed to limit the heat loss to the floor below.
