Radiant Floor Heating

There are 2 types of radiant floor heating – electric and hydronic. An electric system is installed underneath the flooring. The hydronic system consists of pipes or tubing embedded into a concrete floor, a boiler and a pump so that hot water can circulate within the piping. With both systems, the heat from the floor rises, creating overall comfort. It is very efficient as it heats the typical comfort zone of the home occupants, about 6’6” to 7’ up from the floor. Radiant heat is most commonly used with ceramic tile because the tile conducts heat well. However, it can also work with vinyl, carpet, or wood flooring products.
