  • Advice -Pex tubing

    I am researching a boiler/water heater combo that heats water
    for shower sink etc and also heats and pumps water through a radiant
    floor heating system. I would like to avoid baseboard units in the
    basement (existing slab-unfinished basement). Has anyone heard of laying down treated sleepers on the slab,
    running the PEX tubing in the bays and installing plywood over that? Is
    there a way to heat the basement with this radiant system of tubing and
    fins without the exposed fixtures?

    I found the supplies on Houseneeds.com and they have a really good deal. I just wanted to make sure that this was the best solution to my problem. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    I would ask this question in ask the plumbing experts area

    but I will give you my 2 cents here...

    "I am researching a boiler/water heater combo that heats water
    for shower sink etc and also heats and pumps water through a radiant
    floor heating system ( Piece of equipment needs to have dual heat exchangers since heating water and potable water cant mix). I would like to avoid baseboard units in the
    basement (existing slab-unfinished basement). Has anyone heard of laying down treated sleepers on the slab,
    running the PEX tubing in the bays and installing plywood over that? (Bad idea since this defeats the purpose of radiant heating, you would be effectively insulating your heat source from the space) Is
    there a way to heat the basement with this radiant system of tubing and ( If you have the hot water you could use a simple fan coil unit that could be placed inside a wall or hidden )

    Do yourself a favor and contact licensed professionals ( Plumber and or HVAC) in your area and discuss your ideas.

          It doesn't look like spam to me. Just needs to be moved to Ask the Plumbing Experts or HVAC discussion

              There is a system out there that you lay down precut grooves and lay your pex in that. It's expensive and time consuming. We've done it for the people here that are selling it. I would also suggest staying away from the combi-core water heaters. They keep coming out with new models that fix old problems, but they haven't had one on the market long enough to prove it yet. Some places won't let you use a water heater for that either, believe it or not, even if that's the only purpose you use the heater for! Check the local pro's
              sigpic3:00, I mean 5:00, and work is done. Time to crack a cold one.

                      I deleted them thinking it was spam at first as well. It may be. Sorry if your not a spambot Sandy. Lotsa creative spamming happening now.
