How Does Underfloor Radiant Heating Work?
Most HVAC systems draw air into their units, condition the air until it reaches the right temperature, and then release the air into your home. Vents installed in your ceilings, floors, and walls blast hot or cold air into each room. But this heating method comes with some drawbacks like dry, warm air that causes itchy dry skin and irritated sinuses.
While this technique can effectively heat a room, it can’t effectively heat a human body. But radiant heat does. An underfloor radiant heating system uses water instead of hot or cold bursts of air.
We install the radiant heating system under the floor of your home. It consists of a network of pipes that run throughout each room. These pipes contain water that heats or cools, depending on your needs.
In-Floor Heating Installation Methods
Depending on your flooring, we’ll use one of the following methods to complete in-floor heating installation.
- Rather than pull up your entire floor, we can install aluminum panels on top of your current flooring or base slab. We’ll then cover the panels with new flooring.
- We install the pipes into the base concrete slab. The flooring goes on top. This works well for newly built homes or homes undergoing floor renovations.
- We place transfer plates beneath the subflooring. The pipes will draw heat from these plates.
- We can discuss other radiant heating methods, such as in walls or ceilings.
There are myriad ways to add a radiant heating system to your home. Regardless of the method we chose, you’ll enjoy deeper comfort that works with your body rather than against it.
