I have a 1,000 sq ft concrete slab with copper tubing inside. Live in cold climate. To complicate matters, the interior walls are are poured concrete. I'm thinking of switching to baseboard heat with 1" rigid foam onto of the slab then plywood on top of the foam and then flooring.
Not sure if the concrete walls will be a problem with this approach ?
I would consider having the old radiant heat copper tubes tested, but I've heard that since it was built in 1950 they may not last another 50 or so years.
