HEATING & COOLING
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.
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 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.
