Radiant Heating

Posted by Bob on February 10th, 2001 02:25 PM

We are planning a retirement house and would like to
use radianting heat. The house will be built on grade
and we were planning to use an 4" structural slab,
followed by 2" of insullation, and then the radiant
heat slab (a 4" concrete slab containing the radiant
heating coils. We are concerned that the repeated
heating and cooling will crack the concrete and damage
the cooling system. Is this an issue we should be
concerned about and are there specific steps that should
be taken to eliminate the potential problem? Thanks for
your comments.
