Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating by Ecofriendly Mechanical
Radiant heat is without a doubt the most comfortable heat you will ever experience in your home! Radiant floor 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 a radiant heated floor, 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 floor heating is initially more expensive than conventional forced air systems, but over time saves money on your utility bills due to a much higher efficiency. Since there is no ducts to leak air and waste energy, radiant floor heating saves you on heating costs from the first day its installed.
Radiant floor heating is best for new construction or remodels as the floor must be partially removed to install the system.
Radiant floor heating can also be installed to keep your driveway and sidewalks free of ice and snow. No more shoveling or salting at home in the Winter, now doesn't that sound fantastic?
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.
How does hydronic radiant floor heating work.
Hot water is circulated through a very durable plastic tubing, which when installed is located under the floor of rooms in your home.A high efficiency boiler or solar water heater is the heart of the system, which heats the water that is circulated throughout your home. Your homes temperature is controlled by a WiFi or programmable thermostat.
