Heating

Is it OK for baseboard heating to loop completely around the up stairs of a cape. For instance; instead of the copper piping going under the floor between rooms, it goes right through all the walls into each room. The copper piping is covered completely by dummy baseboard where heating elements are'nt.

Its done that way lots of times. This way you dont have as many air pockets to fight.

Thanks Ed! One more quick question. What can I do about the crackling sound I get when the heat turns on?

They all make noise you have to find it Some where the pipe is to tight in the wood and grows as it gets hot. they are hard to find some times.hangers on the pipe to tight. Boy all I can say is have fun. You will see in the baseboard they like just float on hangers
