I just moved into a 1935 farmhouse and will likely be running a new staple-up hydronic radiant floor heat in the open basement ceiling to heat the first floor. How close to the subfloor should the pex be mounted? What type of insulation should be used under the pex and at what distance? Where should the wiring run in relation to the insulation and pex.
I am hoping that there will be sufficient space to run new electrical wires under the insulation. Otherwise I'm afraid that the wires will get too hot.
I will be running the electrical myself and I am considering running the pex myself, provided I can find out exactly how to do it.
Any advice on the best method will be greatly appreciated.
