Little heat transfer to 2nd story floor

Greg J | Posted in General Questions on

Instead of forced air heat on 2nd floor, there are PEX loops stabled to the underside of the sub floor. The upstairs floor does not get the heat transfer, but the ceiling does so 1st floor rom are noticeably warmer than the 2nd floor. Imagine that? The ceiling is finished, but I do have access to the floor cavity though passive floor grates… enough for blow-in insulation. What would you recommend?

    This is the second time you asked this question. There are already two answers on the first thread you created. Maybe you are having trouble navigating the site.

    Anyway, here is a link to your first Q&A thread: Second story hydronic radiant floor system.
