I have the need to drill a number of holes in a residential ceiling with
ceiling heat (house built in early 70's in Oregon).
As I obviously do not want to drill into any of the elements, I need to know
a method for locating the elements.
Thanks for any help with this,
I think that your best bet is thermo imaging. There are a number of methods
and devices to do this and some are pricey. I don't know if rental is an
option. There are companies that do this and can provide photographs.
Nobody else asked, so I will- what do you need to drill all the holes
for? You know you can't hang anything large from the ceiling, or you
will get a cold spot underneath it? (I know, not supposed to happen,
but I hung out a lot in a house that had ceiling heat, and it was
noticeably cooler under the dining table.)

I'm hanging a canopy curtain around our bed and need I have the same issue.
Fortunately I just bought Mr. A laser thermometer for Xmas and that is a genius
idea. Also have a hanging light I want to install. Neither of these things will
effect the heat underneath. I'm glad I ran into this thread. I was bout to use
command hooks, but I'd have to scrape the gross texture off the ceiling fist.
