You need to have concrete or tile or stone or something that's gonna be a really good radiator for it to really work, so it doesn't always work well for wood floors or other scenarios that just aren't in that kind of vein, but it's a great system for getting that heat out exactly where you want it, but like it said, what if we were doing this for cooling? If we were doing this for cooling, as the air is sort of blowing around and coming down near the floor, the coolness that would be in the pipes, which would eventually make that concrete cool and then that concrete would be acting as part of a radiant exchange with our bodies, our bodies would be the hot bodies, and the concrete would be the cold body, and so our bodies would be radiating heat to the concrete, which as I said is not automatically as efficient as when the concrete is radiating heat to us. Our bodies just don't work quite as well that way, but it would work to some degree, and so we could do it, so we would have our bodies radiating heat to the cool entity of the slab, and then that air would be the coolest air in the room and would be coming down, and it would be getting cooler because it's down near a cold slab, so the warmer air is up higher, and that warm air has quite a bit of moisture in it cuz it's inside, and we've been sweating and breathing and cooking spaghetti and all those things, and so we have a lot of moisture in the air.
