Probably the cleanest old home I've done. However...one strange thing was one of the bathroom floors. I'm familiar with newer electric, under-tile heating (recently installed a bunch myself) with a temperature sensor embedded in the thin-set and a specially designed "floor-stat". The recommended comfort range for those is 80-85F. This bathroom had a normal "air" thermostat controlling the floor. It would click on and off around 68F (the ambient temperature of the house - bathroom door open), but look at the floor readings.

I told my client that I consider this to be abnormal and in need of modification (read...ripped up and start again). This one is going to be a major bidding war, so it's very likely I won't actually have to write it up. In the meanwhile...comments anyone? Was this ever a normal way to install under-tile heat?
