By 2050, Vancouver plans to use 100% renewable energy. To say the least, this is going to be a challenge. There will have to be a transportation revolution, for starters. B.C.

City staff acknowledge that the cost of P.V. panels has come [...]

We recently discussed some of the basics of hydronic radiant floor heating installation, giving you some information about different 'wet' and 'dry' installation methods. However, we ignored one question that could be very relevant to those interested in making the change to radiant floor heating: whether or not it makes sense to retrofit radiant floor heating into already built homes.
