We plan to install ceramic or porcelin flooring in our kitchen farmhouse. We are limited by the thickness of the cement board and tile due to the height of the floors of the neighboring rooms and doors. That rules out electric pads sandwiched between the board and the tiles (not to mention the cost of the same).
Could I install pex tubing in the basement under the Kitchen floor and install metal mounting trays to reflect the heat up thru the floor. I have forced air gas heat throughout the home but am considering using the hot water out of my gas water heater. Sounds like a stretch, but it seems feasible in my own mind.
Where can I look for the reflective heat tube trays and hot water pump?
