PEX Tubing is the flexible material used in Radiant Heat and Hydronic Heating Systems. Hot water passes through the PEX and warms the room. An oxygen barrier is typically required.
PEX Fittings are used to make PEX to PEX Connections, to connect PEX to a manifold, & to connect PEX to another material. Several varieties of Radiant Heat Fittings are available.
Manifolds play an important role in Radiant Heat applications. Manifolds are the place where supply water from the heat source is separated into smaller lines and dispersed throughout the Radiant Heat System.
This category includes all of the tools needed for Radiant Heat. These PEX Tools include the tools needed to make PEX connections, hook up manifolds, cut and uncoil tubing, and more.
Radiant Heat Controls include actuators, thermostats, and zone valves. These radiant heat controls will operate the flow of water in a radiant heat system.
Radiant Heat Panels will improve the efficiency of a radiant heat system. These panels include Wirsbo Quik Trak which can be used above a sub-floor, and Wirsbo Joist Trak which should be placed in between the joists below the space to be heated.
Insulation lowers the heat loss of a Radiant Heating System. Therefore in the long run it will save money in the form of lower energy bills. Heating systems will perform better if insulation is used. The insulation listed below is ideal for under-slab Radiant Heat installations.
Installation accessories include the items needed to install PEX Tubing for Radiant Heat Systems. These include tube talons for PEX Tubing, Bend Supports for PEX Tubing, and several Radiant Heat Books.
This category contains a variety of Radiant Heat Packages. Package installation types include Joist Trak, Quick Trak, Suspended Pipe and Slab. Packages are available for a variety of square footage areas.
Electric Radiant Heat is one of the fastest growing methods of heating space, or floor warming. Electric radiant heat has grown in popularity due to ease of installation, cost of installation, and the comfort it produces. Electric Radiant Heat is often found in bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens, but may also be used for a full house. Suntouch is a leader in the manufacturing of electric radiant heat products. Suntouch Mats are simple and easy to use and are also sold as all inclusive kits. Suntouch Mats are not the only form of electric radiant heat, WarmWire Cable is also available and sold in spools as well as all inclusive kits. Controls for the Suntouch Mats and electric radiant cable are also available including the Sunstat Thermostats.
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.
