Radiant Heating

Radiant heat is without a doubt the most comfortable heat you will ever experience in your home! Radiant heating keeps your home warm, doesn’t make any noise and it’s highly energy efficient. You can heat all of your house or just a room or two.

With radiant heat, the heat rises evenly from the floor to the ceiling, so the temperature of the room is uniform from top to bottom, so no cold spots. Also, there’s no blowing air like with typical forced air systems. That means less stirred-up dust, allergens, or any blowing air noise.

Radiant heating is initially more expensive than conventional forced air systems, but over time saves money on your utility bills due to much higher efficiency. Since there are no ducts to leak air and waste energy, radiant floor heating saves you on heating costs from the first day it's installed.

Unlike traditional forced air heating systems or radiators which can make a room feel cold at times and too hot at other times, underfloor heating does not overheat a room, instead, it achieves the perfect temperature set by you using the thermostat.

Radiant heating is best for new construction or remodels as the floor must be partially removed to install the system.

How does hydronic radiant floor heating work?

Hot water is circulated through a very durable flexible polymer (PEX) tubing, which when installed is located under the floor of rooms in your home. A high-efficiency boiler is the heart of the system, which heats the water that is circulated throughout your home. Your home's temperature is controlled by a smart thermostat or programmable thermostat.

Hydronic Snow Melt Systems

Snow melt systems utilize the same concept as the radiant heat installed inside your home. Hydronic snow melt systems work by circulating warm glycol through (PEX) tubing installed under your driveway, walkway, patio, or parking areas. This warms the medium and melts the snow.

Residential and Commercial Applications of Hydronic Snow Melt Systems:

  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks
  • Patios
  • Steps
  • Wheel Chair Ramps
  • Parking Areas
  • Courtyards
  • Decks
  • Porches
