RADIANT HEATING AND BOILERS
Hardwood and tile have become more and more fashionable for interior home flooring finishes. While they can be versatile and very beautiful, they can also make for an uncomfortably cold surface to walk on. A popular solution to cold feet is a radiant floor heating system.
Radiant floor heating features placing electric heating coils or water/steam heated tubing systems under your home’s floor. The result is floors that are cozy and warm regardless of the cold outdoor temperatures and more consistent heat that radiates throughout the room from the floor up. Radiant floor heating can also be more efficient and cost-effective than standard furnace systems.
A new home is an ideal fit for a radiant floor system, but your current home or specific rooms of your home, such as a kitchen or master bedroom/bathroom, can be retrofitted with a radiant floor heating system.
Boilers are an integral part of a radiant heating system. They generate heated water or steam that is pumped into the coils or tubes for circulation under your floors, which is then recirculated to the boiler for reheating. Boilers are generally compact in size and need little maintenance. They can operate by natural gas, oil, or propane.
