How Does Radiant Floor Heating Work?
Though relatively new to the States, radiant floor heating has actually been around for thousands of years. There are three components to a radiant floor heating system
A heat source
A piping system for distribution
A control panel or remote control unit
Radiant in-floor heating systems pump water or glycol through PEX (Cross-linked Polyethylene) piping that is embedded underneath a thin layer of concrete. The water or glycol can transport 3,500 times more energy than air and can be heated by natural gas, oil, electricity, or propane. Heating your home with a radiant heating system uses less energy and is far more cost-effective than regular heating systems.
Get Radiant Heat Installation & Repair from Our Knowledgeable Techs
Radiant heating systems are relatively easy to maintain and rarely require repair. That being said, scheduling regular maintenance check-ups can increase the lifespan of your system and ensure that it is running at peak levels. At Competitive Plumbing and HVAC, once we have installed your system we’ll set up an annual inspection and maintenance program so we can detect leaks or other problems that may be brewing up in your pump or boiler.
Are There Health Benefits to Radiant Heating?
A radiant floor from Competitive Plumbing and HVAC can deliver superior warmth and healthier air. Radiant heating does not utilize dusty and bulky ductwork and there are no fans, blowers, or vents to move around mold and dust mites.
Can I Still Have Air Conditioning?
Installing a separate cooling system makes perfect sense if you have a radiant floor system. We can install a high-velocity ductless system that when paired with a radiant floor offers a cost-effective – and environmentally sound – heating and cooling one-two punch.
Radiant Heat installation Types
Radiant floor Heating, Installation can be categorized into wet and dry methods.
Through this method, electrical cables, mats, or hydronic tubing are installed in a thick concrete slab or thin concrete subfloor, which makes it more expensive than dry installation.
This method is not just more convenient but less expensive as well. Heating cables, mats, or tubing are installed in a pocket of air under the floor and result in faster heating related to the wet systems.
Do Radiant Systems Ever Leak?
No. PEX tubing has a life expectancy of more than 100 years and it is so durable it’ll probably outlast the home it is installed in. We have over 30 years of experience serving Allentown and the surrounding area and we are proud to offer one of the most environmentally sensitive heating systems that money can buy.
