I have not heard from anyone who was happy with electric ceiling radiant.
When they fail they are impossible to repair!!   

    We are sometimes asked about ceiling radiant, although we have replaced several ceiling radiant houses with either baseboards or floor radiant we have never installed a ceiling radiant system. We have installed a few wall radiant systems usually to supplement a floor panel. We have used wall radiant very successfully in barns to heat livestock.

      Radiant ceiling heat can never approach the comfort level or efficiency of floor radiant. You should never try to use ceiling radiant in a vaulted ceiling as the surface temperatures would have to be so high that the losses through the roof would be greatly increased.
     The human body has the poorest circulation in it's feet, it makes no sense to give it the least heat.     

WARMING THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD WILL LEAVE YOU WITH COLD FEET.

The advantage of electric hydronic is the ability to change heating sources!

I GET SEVERAL EMAILS EACH YEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO'S ELECTRIC CEILING RADIANT HAS FAILED AND THEY HAVE NO WAY TO REPAIR IT!!

TYPICAL CEILING RADIANT EMAIL.

I was searching the web to see whether there is a class-action suit on contractors who installed electric radiant heat in ceilings during the '60s and came across your site.
I'm in the process of selling my mother's home (she's in a nursing home and I have to liquidate her resources in order for Medicaid to pay her expenses), and of course, there are cracks in the ceiling from the heat. This is the reason I'm trying to find out -- have you heard of any suits) against contractors? That was really a terrible heating system! Thank you,  Alice
