loops. If I put a three speed pump(on high) in its place will that push more heat into the slab? The water temp in is 120 and return 80 so Im assuming until I get 120deg water back there is room for more btu/hr in the slab. Is this sound reasoning? I should mention that the efm is cycling on at about 30% of the time so its not a production issue.Thanx in advance for the input.....

You think baseboard would do better with water that is too cold running through it?

I think that probably getting a three speed pump will push the 120 deg water further into the system and when I can get the valve freed up ill be able to increase water temp to the floor as well. I just dont dare to tear the valve apart right at the moment. Though it did make it to 0* this afternoon The temps in the house started climbing , and made it to 67 . Just not the toasty Im used to

Cut some foam insulation board to fit and block these areas. Cheap and easy and it will do the trick. Quite a few years ago I made a foam board box to fit over our pull down attic steps and it works great keeping the heat downstairs.
