radiant heat/cooling in the south
If a person is planning to build a ICF house in Oklahoma and thinking about making the main floor out of ICF decking, what is the benefit of putting radiant lines into the floor? It is easy enough to do, the system is practically designed for it, but my climate is mixed humid and about a delta T of 30 degrees for both cooling and heating. Even with a ground source HP, radiant cooling has humidity issues. My question is: am I better to just pour the slab, forget the radiant lines, and focus on air-air HP solutions.
