ABOUT RADIANT FLOOR HEATING

Our radiant floor heating systems are hydronic systems where water is used as the heat transfer medium. The water is warmed by a heatsource and circulated through tubing installed in the floor. Once the floor area is warmed it gives up heat into the living space.The unique advantage of radiant floors systems over any other type of heating system is that they emit heat throughout the heated area in 3 different ways:

Radiant:
The Radiant transfer is experienced when the heat energy wave comes into contact with a person or an object, for example, an outdoor infrared heater at a restaurant. This thermal energy wave is present in floor heating systems and is invisible to the eye as it moves across the floor from warmer to cooler, seeking thermal equalibrium.
Conduction:
Conductive heat transfer is experienced when a person or object comes into direct contact with a heated surface, such as walking or sitting on your heated floor as well as contact with living and bed room furniture creating a consistant surface temperature.That equates to greater comfort.
Convection (passive):
Passive convection is the natural heat transfer between your heated floor and the cooler air in your home. The warmed air rises and the cooler air falls which creates a natural convective circulation of air. With a floor heating system you have created the largest heat emmitter in your home --the floor. It is the passive convective action that creates an even air temperature throughout the heated area. This feature sets radiant heating systems apart from all others.

Other benefits of radiant heating include reduced airborne pollen and dust since there are no fans, dirty duct systems and forgotten filters to change. Efficiency: Water has a greater heat carrying capacity than air which makes radiant floor heating systems more efficient to operate and reduces the overall carbon footprint of the Home. Green: Radiant floor heating systems are considered green due to it's passive and natural heat transfer properties and ability to operate at low water temperatures which equals reduced fuel usage. Radiant systems are quiet and, above all, comfortable.
