If you're searching for an alternative way to heat your home or a supplemental heat source, radiant floor heating is the answer. This timeless, energy-efficient heat system keeps your home comfortably warm even during the coldest winter weather.
Radiant floor heating utilizes two different energy sources when warming a room. The in-floor radiant heat system that we install in your home is dependent on your home’s construction and the room’s layout. Our expert installers will help you choose and plan an effective system.
Radiant heat delivers evenly distributed warmth, preventing cold zones that vents and ductwork inevitably create. The temperature is controlled by a thermostat which you manage. In homes built on slabs or in rooms with unheated spaces below them, radiant flooring introduces a level of comfort and warmth for homeowners despite cold outdoor temperatures.
The Romans began using radiant underfloor heating as early as 670 A.D. The notorious emperor Caligula had radiant heat installed in his barge using terracotta pipes and a wood fire. The principle was simple: circulate heated water using tubes placed throughout the floor. Today, radiant underfloor heat is the most popular form of central heating in Europe and Asia. Typically used in areas with colder, longer winters, including Western states and the upper North East, radiant heat has seen growing popularity in recent years. The fundamental principle has not changed in 1,500 years, and now homeowners can take advantage of a tried and true system augmented by modern technology.
