RADIANT FLOOR HEATING
- The Ultimate in Comfort -

    As early as 60 AD, the Romans discovered the best way to heat
on enclosed space was to introduce heat below the floor surface and let it radiate upward through the floor into the structure. This basic concept remains true today, and the tremendous advances in this technology have brought radiant heating into modern times.

    It's simple ...floors become large, mild radiators resulting in warm friendly floors. The systems circulate warm water through the flexible yet durable tubing that can be installed underneath virtually any type of flooring material - wood, tile, even carpet. There are systems to meet every need and budget from Radiant ready to Radiant Exclusive.

    The lower water temperatures needed for a radiant floor heating system mean lower thermostat settings, which save on monthly heating bills. In addition, zoning gives you room by room temperature control, allowing you to place the heat where you want it

So many benefits with Radiant Floor Heating.

Superior Comfort - Consistent, steady heat all winter long remaining near the floor where you are.

Warm Floors in kitchen and bathrooms - Beautiful wood and marble floors are even more enjoyable because they are now warm.

Efficiency - Because people are in direct contact with the heat source, they are comfortable at a lower thermostat setting. Energy savings between 20 to 40% results.

Zoning Ability - Radiant Floor Heating provides room by room temperature control, allowing more heat where you want it most.

Decorating Freedom - Because the system is encased in the floor, furnishings can be placed wherever you desire without concern for impairing heat distribution or hiding unsightly heating appliances.

Clean and Draft free - There are no noisy fans to blow dust and allergens around your home. Because the floors are warm, they dry more quickly after mopping.

Radiant Floor Heating - simply adds immediate value to your home.

    All structures lose heat at different rates to the outside (heating cycle) depending upon their construction materials; this includes insulation, amount of exposed surface area, shape, physical location, etc. Also, all structures lose that heat depending upon the outside temperature, wind, etc. When this temperature remains at a constant, the building loses heat at a slow, continuous rate. The colder it gets, the faster the heat loss occurs. The heating system that provides heat most comfortably is the system that can most evenly match that heat loss (as the outside temperature changes, so does the BTU heat) and can do so without moving air ( a radiant system) to stacking the heat for the most efficient use of the fuel source. This close matching of the amount of heat added to the house to parallel the outside temperature, this way of heating that is also the most comfortable simply because it is the least noticeable, is heating with constant circulation. As constant circulation through a radiant heating system does not move the air, it allows for the greatest amount of moisture content (relative humidity) by not baking air.
