heating floors


Hello,
I am considering adding under floor heat to take the chill of of some ceramic tile floors. I currently have hydronic baseboard heat in the bath and laundry rooms, which are over an insulated crawl space, and they are chilly. My question is do I need to install the aluminum heat transfer plates to the bottom of the subfloor or can I just run the PEX in the floor joist cavity and insulate the bottom of the joist? The water will be around 125F.
Thanks.
