Radiant ceiling heat isn't uncommon although this particularly type of implementation definitely is. I use to know a guy that had electric radiant heat in the ceiling of a house he owned. It was weird when your hands felt cool but your head felt warm when you had been standing in a room for a while.
Knocking someone for reusing perfectly good pipes from an unused radiator?
Funny you should mention that because that's what the homeowner wanted me to do after I sealed the block walls and remodeled the basement. He wanted me to use the existing piping in the ceiling and mount it to the newly built walls at the floor.
I told him I could reuse some of the lengths of copper, some of the fins but I won't reuse fittings. I also told him I will use proper baseboard heating encasement. I finished the remodel but did not do the baseboard heat. -- Stop The Mindless Killings Stop Over Fishing
the first picture seems to indicate the radiator on the return path, are the rest of the radiators in the following pictures configured the same way ? i would assume there is floor radiators above the floor as well ? -- Suffolk County NY Police Feed - »www.scpdny.com PS3 Gaming Feed - »www.livestream.com/elitedata
Yes, it's a 3 zone set up, basement, 1st floor and 2nd floor. After seeing the way the basement lines were hung from the ceiling my investigation stopped. I was going to cut and drop it in sections and mount it properly at the floor level inside radiators and then insulate all the bare copper piping with fiberglass pipe insulation.
