I am purchasing a hobby farm and the previous owner had started to install an outdoor wood boiler for in floor heat. He got as far as running the tubing into the house and that's it. Can the remainder of the tubing be installed directly from the basement to heat the main floor without damaging the hardwood floors?

And how can I get the upstairs heated without ripping up or adding to the floors? (the whole house has hardwood flooring) Can something be put in under the baseboards? What is the most cost effective way of doing this???

I've never used any type of in floor heating, so this is all new to me!

Thanks! Jessie
