Will this work ok? I have a bunch of 2 inch t&g I would like to use and put electric heat below it. Not sure if this is a good thing to do or not.

So many questions….
Why are you using 2” plywood when 3/4” T&G is plenty strong and standard?
What is your joist center spacing? Even at 24” on cntr. 3/4” T&G is still strong enough.
How does a 2” height increase effect the floor level from this room into the next?

A step or even a small threshold should always be avoided. Very important. Make it flush.

Radiant heat should be installed above the sub floor, either below the tile or under oak floors with 3/4” cleats.
If you are going to install the heat under sub floor, 2” plywood would definitely be harder to heat. It would work but I wonder how much it would cost to heat. You would lose any savings trying to use this free but very heavy plywood.

How about the total weight? You may end up exceeding the capacity of the floor joists.

I only use electric heat mats under tile in bathrooms. I use PEX hot water radiant heat in all other rooms with carpet.
The elevation of the existing framing determines what your options are unless you are changing this too.

Save your leftover plywood for a shed floor.
Do it right and have fun. No regrets.

It works but it costs you the effort and supplies, where in you can get the heat normally. I suggest that you read ninjaessays.com review to understand the process of doing this in a much affordable manner. Of course, there is no question that your idea is great, but there are easier alternatives.
