Radiant Floor Heating Installation & Replacement

Radiant floor heating provides even and energy efficient heat to your home

Radiant floor heating is an option that is becoming more and more popular among homeowners and comes in two main types:

  • Electric radiant floor heating: In this case, electrical cables run beneath the floor and are used to generate heat. These cables are generally embedded in thin mats installed beneath the floor, but can also consist of a single insulated wire that snakes beneath the floor.
  • Hot water radiant systems: Sometimes called hydronic heating, this type of radiant floor heating uses hot water circulating through tubing beneath the floor to generate heat.

While the methods may be different, both radiant floor heating options work by generating heat right beneath your floorboards. This heat then rises to provide even heating to the entire room. Both methods are also more energy efficient and cost effective to run than many other heating options.

Advantages of radiant floor heating installation

  • Energy Efficient: Because radiant floor heating is installed right below the floor, the temperature doesn’t need to be as high, allowing for even temperatures while saving money on energy bills. For example, a radiator generally needs to be heated to somewhere between 149 and 167 degrees Fahrenheit, but a radiant heating system only needs to run at about 84 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Low Operating Costs: While not the cheapest system to install, radiant floor heating requires effectively no maintenance once installed and will usually last you for more than 25 years. Because of the energy efficiency, you can also expect to see average savings of about 15% on your energy bill.
  • Flexible & Safe: Radiant heating can be installed underneath nearly any floor material you can think of, from laminate to carpet. This means you can freely customize your room without worrying about exposed heating elements causing problems. As an added benefit, the lack of exposed heating elements also makes the room safer for young children.
