Radiant Hydronic Floor Installations
Radiant hydronic floor heating systems are typically installed in new constructions rather than existing homes, since the retrofitting job would require tearing up floors and expensive labor costs. Hydronic systems are installed as pipes running underneath the floors, and they heat up the floors using water that is heated by your boiler. There are certain patterns for each situation, and for more efficiency, you can create a zone control system by installing separate thermostats in each area of the home. Special valves are used to control the hot water flowing to the tubes in that area or room. Depending on the size of your home and your heating needs, you will have a variety of flooring options to choose from.
Types of Radiant Floors
Hydronic installations are also called “wet” radiant floor installations, and they tubing can be installed underneath a slab foundation, or many other materials for the additional floors. Many homeowners choose ceramic tile because of its cost–effectiveness, but you can also choose to install wood floors, carpet, or vinyl; however, keep in mind that tile tends to be more efficient than other flooring materials because of its ability to conduct heat. Floor coverings that have added insulation will not be as efficient because the heat cannot radiate throughout the room as well, and the water will continue to get hotter to compensate, which can waste energy. Wood floors need special finishes to keep them from becoming dry and cracked.
In addition to the hydronic radiant floor tubing, we will install the right size and type of boiler for your radiant heating system. We have a variety of models to choose from, including high–efficiency gas–fired boilers. We offer models made by Lennox, and we will maintain or repair all makes and models for existing systems. Call us today to learn more about the quality boilers we can install for your radiant floor heating system.
