Radiant Floor Heating Systems


In Floor Radiant Heating System Installation in Surrey and Surrounding Areas

There’s nothing worse than getting out of bed in the morning and feeling a freezing cold floor under your bare feet. Great news: it doesn’t have to be that way! Radiant in-floor heating warms your home through your floors, giving you consistent, even heat in every room.

Even the Ancient Romans used radiant in-floor heating! Well, kind of. They had heating systems where fires were lit and tended beneath marble floors. The technology has changed over the years, but the same basic idea is still the basis for modern in-floor radiant heating.

Nowadays, in-floor radiant heating can be either hydronic (using hot water to heat your household) or electric.

Hydronic Floor Heating

With a hydronic system, a boiler heats up water, which is pumped through a network of pipes underneath the flooring in various rooms in your home. The water then travels back to the boiler where it is reheated and circulated again.

Electric Floor Heating

Electric underfloor heating uses the same idea, but it works by heating up wiring beneath your floor.

In-floor heating works with any kind of flooring, including laminate, hardwood, tile, stone, vinyl, and carpet. Keep in mind, however, that the thicker the carpet is, the higher the temperature will need to be to heat your home through the carpet.

Why Install Radiant In-Floor Heating?

If you are considering a new heating system for your home, here are a few of the reasons why radiant floor heat might be the right choice.

  • It is long lasting.
  • It gives you even, consistent heat. That means no cold spots!
  • It is a silent system so it won’t interrupt your home life with clanking or whooshing sounds the way other heating systems do.
  • It can be used to heat other things as well, such as swimming pools or spas, or to add a snowmelt feature to your driveway.
  • It improves indoor air quality because, unlike forced-air heating systems, underfloor heat does not disturb dust, pollen, and allergens and blow them into the air. For this reason, radiant in-floor heat is good for those with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.
  • It is completely invisible, so you don’t have ugly radiators or baseboards taking up space in your home.
  • It is more energy efficient than other heating systems.
  • It can save you up to 30% on your monthly bill.
  • It can be used to heat your whole home or just one room, depending on your preferences.
  • Hot water can be combined with a hot water heating system to provide both house heat and potable hot water for your home.
