The radiant heat system is struggling to keep the house at 65F during this extreme cold snap here in NE Ohio. I have had to resort to running the propane furnace to give the house the added "boost".
I have even upped the temp going out to the loops but I just need a bit more.

This is not uncommon with diy - engineered installs - and another reason to have an air scorcher for backup

but your floors are warm under you - so your still more comfortable than most folks
