my house was built in 1968/69 with radiant electric heat in the ceilings. I love it cause I can set furniture anywhere. My concern is it's age now and can it be repaired. Is there a danger of electrical fire??? Also, what about central air in the attic. I had a contractor refuse the job because he was afraid of cutting into the coils when it would be installed in the attic and vents would have to be drilled. I appreciate any feedback.
Also, as far as cracks...I had a big crack across the livingroom ceiling. A drywall contractor dug out the plaster coat about 4" wide and put drywall tape on it and then put several coates of drywall mud over the tape, letting it dry a day or so in between coates. Thats been 20 years ago and it still has not cracked back through on that spot!!!!
