Radiant floor heating
Put the heat under your feet.
Conventional heating systems like forced-air, wood stoves,
or other heating methods produce uneven heat, with the highest
air temperatures near the ceilings.
Radiant floor heating puts the heat under your feet, gently
warming your rooms.
This results in similar heating levels with superior comfort
without wasting energy and money in monthly fuel bills.
The warm water circulated through the tubing in a radiant
floor may come from solar collectors, water heaters, wood
stoves, or your already installed central heating boiler
- The only efficient way to warm tile or marble floors in
kitchen and bathrooms
- Eliminates the drafts that can raise dust or allergens
- Place your furniture anywhere you want.. no vents or radiators
- Floor heating is the only true way to heat basements
- Works with virtually any hot water heat source or fuel
- Lower heating bills.
How to get the heat into your floor;
The easiest way to get the heat into your floor is polyethylene
hot water tubing buried into concrete.This is fairly easy
for basement floor heating.
The tubing is either installed when the basement floor is
poured or topped up after the house is build.
Installed between the floor joist tightly against the wooden
sub floor, these floors have to be insulated so the heat
doesn't reflect downwards. The finished floor can be ceramic/stone
tile, hard wood, vinyl or thin carpet. Between the joist
heating is perfect for remodeling projects.
Tubing can be installed over suspended wood floors and covered
with poured floor underlayment.
