Dear All, Our community, Swan's Market Cohousing in Oakland, CA is also in a mild climate area and has baseboard heating. I grew up in a private home with radient floor heating, also in California, so I have experience with both types. I would have to say the radient floor heating felt better, nothing beats the luxury of getting out of bed on a cold winter morning and stepping onto a warm floor. On the other hand when maintenance is required when things go wrong it is definately easier to be dealing with the baseboard heating. When my parent's died and we had to sell the house my sisters and I discovered that the heating system had stopped working and they basically had to jackhammer up the concrete slab it was laid in to fix it. Last winter when we had some problems with erratic heating here it was a lot easier to bleed the system (which had air bubbles in it which were defeating the pumping system) and fix it so I would recommend factoring long term maintenance issues into your diecision.
