I am trying to decide whether to go with a tankless and gas fuelled water heater and water or gel radiant floor heating, or the air system that Legalett uses. I am also wondering how much rebar should be in a slab on grade floor and if it's okay to have the perimeter touching the ground without any insulation beneath it?
