Heat transfer between the water and the inside tube wall is usually better than heat transfer through the tube wall and from the outside tube wall to the room. In that case, laminar vs turbulent flow has only a small effect on overall heat transfer.

If the system had copper tubing embedded in concrete, that might be different.
