radiant floor vs hot water baseboard heat
I'm considering hot water baseboard heat for a new house. A few people have suggested I look into radiant floor heat. The house will have a walkout basement (concrete slab) which we will use often. The upper 2 floors will be mostly wood flooring. Are there major benefits to consider comparing radiant floor heat vs baseboard hot water? I understand Radiant is quite a bit more $$ to install, but maybe cheaper to run. We are located in Massachusetts. Any input/suggestions/insights would be helpful. Thanks.
