Radiant Floor Heating


What is Radiant Floor Heating?

Radiant floor heating is a heating system that delivers warmth and comfort by heating your floors directly. Instead of warming the air like traditional systems, radiant heat warms objects and people in the room, creating a consistent and comfortable feeling from the floor up. This efficient heated floors system can be installed in homes, businesses, and even storage areas.


What are the advantages of Radiant Floor Heating?

Radiant floor heating systems offer significant benefits over traditional heating methods. It's more energy-efficient because it eliminates heat loss through ducts, often found in forced-air systems. Radiant heat warms objects and people directly, creating a comfortable and even warmth throughout the room. This quiet system works well under most floor coverings and is allergy-friendly as it doesn't circulate dust and allergens like forced-air heating can. 


Why Install Radiant Heated Floors?

  • Comfort: Installing radiant heating under a new floor brings you comfort from the floor up. Radiant floor heat is the most comfortable heat available. Warmth radiates from the floor warming our bodies and the objects surrounding us. The radiant heat energy that we pay for rises from the floor to the ceiling instead of being blown in from the ceiling and staying up by the ceiling as with forced air heat, escaping through the ceiling or through open doors.

  •  Clean: Radiant floor heating doesn’t circulate dust and other allergens like forced air does so it keeps your air clean.

  •  Safe: Our floor heating products are tested for quality and safety.

  •  Saves Energy: Radiant heating has higher levels of energy efficiency than central air systems because it heats the people and objects in the room directly via infrared heat. Radiant heated floors are also inexpensive to operate, you can heat a typical bathroom for pennies a day. 

  •  Affordable: You decide, depending on your electric rate. Generally, electric rate increases have not approached the continuing steep rise in propane, natural gas, and fuel oil prices.


What are the types of radiant floor heating?

Electric radiant heating: This system utilizes mats containing electrical cables that are installed directly under the floor. Electric floor heating is generally considered easier to install, making it a suitable option for do-it-yourselfers or smaller areas. Electric radiant heating is particularly well-suited for mild climates where occasional heating is needed, as its responsiveness allows for quick heat-up times.


Hydronic radiant floor heating: This system circulates hot water through a network of pipes strategically positioned beneath the floor. Compared to electric floor heating systems, hydronic heating boasts greater efficiency, especially for larger spaces that require consistent heating. Additionally, hydronic systems offer more flexibility in terms of heat source. They can be connected to boilers that run on various fuels, including natural gas, propane, or even renewable sources like solar thermal collectors. This versatility can translate to significant cost savings depending on your energy source and local fuel prices.


How to install radiant floor heating?

While radiant floor heating offers significant comfort benefits, installation is typically a job for HVAC or plumbing professionals. The overall cost depends on several factors:

  • Size of your space: Larger areas naturally require more materials and labor.

  • Type of installation: Retrofitting an existing floor is more complex than including radiant heating during initial construction.

  • Floor covering: Different materials may require additional installation steps.

  • Labor costs: Prices can vary depending on your location and contractor.


For the most cost-effective installation, consider radiant heating during the initial construction phase.

If you're pouring a new concrete floor, including radiant heating loops now can save you money in the future, even if you don't plan on using them immediately.
