baseboard heat and radiant floor heat
In another post I'm asking about a wood burning furnace. In this post I wanted to ask if it is possible to have baseboard heat in most rooms of a house, but radiant floor heat in some of the rooms instead (bathrooms in particular)?
If the answer to the above is "yes," the next question is- could the radiant floor be installed using he pipes that go into those rooms already? Can they be in the same loop (or zone) that they're already in, or do they need to be plumbed differently because of the smaller pipe (tube) diameters and much longer pipe runs?
We would do this for three reasons- first, the obvious comfort factor of warm floors in the bathroom when you go in there in the morning. The second reason has to do with space considerations in the bathrooms (more wall space for vanities with no heater in the way. The third reason has to do with the proximity of baseboards to the toilet and the yuck factor that can create due to liquids splashing on a hot surface.
Thanks for your help.
