if you insulate the pipe how will the heat get to the floors & it's amazing what a little air will do !!!

What does the Mrs. think?

I will insulate under the pipes to keep the heat in that area of the floor. The wife is very happy, I just need to do the rest of the floor to have full coverage, the kitchen needed more heat so this works out well. Gotta scrounge up more pipe. Weird how air wont move in the system easily, shouldn't air be easier to push than water? Sure is easier to walk in air than swim in water ;)
