Are you talking about in floor heating?

If so, my aunt has this and it's great. Best thing is: since your heat isn't passed by forced air there is less dust that gets blown around. She doesn't dust and her house is completely dust free.

It works. I have it in my bathrooms because the flooring is marble throughout. DAMN cold in winter in bare feet.

Depends on the quality and if you do it or pay someone.

You can look at 1000 sq ft with everything, materials and heat source, to run about 3 grand. Just for example.

Could go either way though in terms of heating costs...and if you live somewhere very cold, I'm not sure that it will suffice to heat the entire home. Just don't know that in a sub-zero geographical area I wouldn't rely on hot water running in tubes under my floor to keep me really warm.

Works great in my bathroom though.

We had radiant in floor heating in the shop I worked in.
Our temp can get down to -35 deg C in the winter.
It was wonderful at keeping the the shop warm.
The only issue we had was that no moisture was being removed from the building so whenever we opened the bay doors you got rained on.
