If your floor temp is only going to be 72-73 with a air temp around there I would skip the radiant flooring. Especially if it is not slab on grade. Insulate, seal, and condition the crawlspace, and the floor will be the same temp as the indoor air.

As for the electric floor... not really. Again it's an install error. Where it works it is wonderful, but it has never fully worked correctly. The sub tile electric matts need a good installer who has worked with them before.

I know you are a big geothermal buff, but you might look at other equipment and use the savings for radiant flooring. I'm especially smitten with the warmboard system (I tried to convince my dad to use it on this house, but he refused).
