VCD heating cables.
What at the first glance looks like the typical
hot water (hydronic) floor radiant heating installation is in fact electric
heating cable. This room needed 650+ ft long
Elektra cable model VCD10/2070. (2070Watts, 9 Amps, 240Volts).

air-conditioning registers already there, the true energy efficient hybrid
heating is accomplished at the minimal cost and maximum effect - all in under 1
day by 1 person.
The floors are ready for tiles.
