I am going to be building a house very soon and am considering the different options of heating and cooling. At first we were set on forced air but have read about problems with dust and allergies. My wife has mild asthma and we are now worried about using forced air. We are also considering using radiant heating throughout the house but dont really know too much about it. What if a water tube breaks? Does it have to be installed under cement or tile, or can it go under rugs & hardwood? I assume it is more expensive, but is there some labor savings in the installation.
Any information such as pros v cons or links to websites would be great.
Thank you all in advance!
