    The plates just allow more of a surface area to be heated in the floor in a quicker time frame. The reflective material is what forces the heat to reflect up to the floor. By using just insulation...

    I did and it doesn't say anything about a 10" gap allowing better convection in the cavity. The only mention of 10" is the 8-10" for the spacing of the aluminium plates which I mentioned in my first...

    I've never seen anyone recommend a 10" space between the tubing and the reflective material before, 1/2 inch to maybe a 1 1/2 or 2" yes but never a 10" gap.

    If your crawlspace is closed up just like a cellar then this is what I did; I used preformed aluminum plates to cover and secure the tubing to the floor between the joist's. They recommend placing...

    Question; what size tubing would be used in a closed loop here in New England, I've read them being anywhere from 3/4 of an inch to 2 inches. Using your 600' per ton as an example would it be more...

    I keep reading where some companies use 100' of tubing per ton all the way up to 600' per ton. There doesn't seem to be a set amount written any where. I'm figuring that I would use a 3 or 4 ton...

    Could I use this setup to maybe preheat the water before it goes into the tank to be heated up to 120 degrees? Would it increase our savings by using less oil?
