More About Radiant Heat

There are two main types of radiant heat systems, electric and hydronic. Electric radiant heat uses electric cables or mats to heat a space. Hydronic radiant heat uses hot water passing through PEX tubing to heat a space. The majority of radiant installs are hydronic.

When installing a hydronic radiant heat system most of the time you'll want to use an oxygen barrier PEX tubing to prevent rusting of the cast iron components in your heating system. We recommend Rifeng (the lowest price), Uponor (the highest quality) or ThermaPEX (the best combination of price and quality. All of these brands of radiant tubing carry a 25-year warranty.

Radiant Heat may be installed several different ways. The tubing can be installed in a cement foundation pour, in an overpour, in between the floor joists with or without plates, and it can be installed above the subfloor in a product like Quik Trak. Depending upon the space where the tubing is being installed, a different method may be selected.

There are several advantages of radiant heat as compared to traditional heating systems. Radiant Heat is the most comfortable and efficient form of heating available. Radiant heat has no visible components unlike radiators, baseboard, or hot air systems. Finally, radiant heat produces no noise unlike radiators, baseboard, or hot air systems. Once you experience the comfort of radiant heat you'll want it in your house. As always we are here to support you and ensure that your job is a successful one.
