Radiant Floor Heat

Conventional Forced Air vs. Floor Radiant Heating

Radiant floor heating is the most comfortable way to heat. It uses hot water running through tubes under your floor to warm up everything above it evenly, and more efficient than conventional force air. It is also a zoned system so rooms that need more heat can be tuned to stay at a comfortable temperature. While rooms that don't need as much can be set lower. Along with heating your room, you also feel the heat come up through your body. This makes you feel more comfortable at lower room temperatures, thus saving you more money on energy costs. 

Benefits of adding a radiant floor heating system include:

  • Removing the circulation of dry air, dust, and allergens in your home
  • It is under your floor so there is no worry about blocking vents
  • Can save you up to 40% in energy costs
  • Heating the space you live in the most even way

Snow and Ice Melting 

Radiant floor heating can also be used to melt snow and ice off of driveways, walkways, and patio's. It keeps the places you travel on care-free, dry, and safe. These systems are proven and used in many commercial applications like preventing snow/ice on bridges, parking ramps, and the exits of car washes. This system uses anti-freeze in the tubes so when you don't need it you can turn it off.
