never installed one but it couldnt be cheap to run im sure if you found the info on it and showed him the amp draws that it would use he would change his mind. It would be cheaper and probly do the same job if he just installed electric baseboard heat.
the homeowner piped the units and the renters are paying their own electric. it is in floor heating. i asked him to go with gas but he doesn't want anymore pipes or holes in the building. i told him he would be better off. but no luck
with infloor you run alot lower temps than with standard radiators so its not like you will be runing up to 180 i think your saposed to put 90 threw the pipes at the most. went to a rehau class last year and forgot most of it
