I got much of the mechanics of the "below joist" system from a commercial system called "Ultra-Fin"

Note that the Ultra-Fin system uses fins for the heat transfer, not the pipe. That improves the efficiency of the water to air heat transfer. If you installed the fins or some similar kind of radiator, I suspect the performance of your system would improve dramatically.
