Does anyone use radiant heating to heat your house?what are the pros and cons.?

I am refering to the heated tubing running in the flooring.Can this be the primary source of heat? Is it a comfortable heat? How is the water heated in your system?

I have radiant heat in my house and I absolutely love it. First thing is that it is very energy efficient. This is a great plus with the rising cost of heating these days. It is also a more even heat. My water is natural gas heated in a boiler on top of the furnace. The only downside that I can think of about radiant heat is that it can be a bit more costly to install but I believe that this will end up paying for itself in the money you save.
