Crete Heat floor heat for garages

Decided to install floor heat in the new pole barn where the motorhome will be installed. I had a friend if mine recommend Crete Heat. This stuff is engenious!
I'll post pictures later showing the 1/2" pex line that snaps right into the green grids.

I'm guessing its hot water heat? Great idea, probably a very cost efficient way to heat a space.

Cost is about $1.50 sq ft

That does not include the water heating system.

Ready for concrete!!!

That is the perfect way to go.
Is it all one zone or did you zone it off for possible future wall petitions like an office or storage area?

It's an 11,000 sq ft bldg. the pics show the west wing where I will have my Boneheads apparel store and custom motorcycle shop as well as an fab room (not pictured) those are all on one zone. The east end is 2600 sq ft and will be on a separate zone. The center 5190 sq ft ( where the motorhome and shop will be) is not radiant heated but will be infra red tube heat. We will only heat that as needed. I did have 7" of foam insulation blown on all exterior walls. Expensive but I think long term worth it. Today was 27 degrees outside and while working in the building with no heat and open gaps due to garage doors not hitting floors ( no concrete yet) we were still almost 10 degrees diff
Very impressed with this product

Are you going to pressurize the tubing before pouring the concrete to prevent tube collapse?

I'll pressurize each loop prior to pouring just to verify each loop is good. There is no way concrete is going to crush the pex, especially with it sitting between the Knobs on the Crete Heat panels
