I'm building a new home on Long Island in NY, and am debating wether to install radiant heat. Radiant sounds like a great product, but costs is the issue. I will have air conditioning installed so I can opt for forced hot air using the same system, at a savings close to $20,000. from radiant heat. The house is close to the water with a North wind exposure. The exterior walls will have R-22 insulation and the roof will have R-35 insulation. Im using Anderson400 windows. Is radiant worth the initial cost? Ive read articles on both sides. Some say its not worth it in a well constructed home. What's really true?
