Radiant Floor Heat
The beauty of the radiant floor system is in what you can’t see it! Unlike forced hot air systems which come with duct work and grill covers, radiant floor heating is hidden underfoot and silent. We specify hydronic radiant floor heat because it’s extremely comfortable, energy efficient and silent.

Radiant floor heat with its enveloping warmth, feels like you are standing in a bright, sunny window on a cold day. The system is very efficient because it heats only up to eight feet above the floor so you are not paying to heat the ceiling. It is ideal for homes with high ceilings. Since the warm air isn’t rising and being replaced with cooler air, a room temperature of 68-degrees will feel like it is 72-degrees.

Radiant floor heating can be used in both new construction and renovation. It goes under the finished floor and is compatible with wood, tile and carpeting. The system is ideal for creating multiple heating zones throughout the house. Overall, it can yield a 30-40% energy savings over a forced hot air system, improve indoor air quality by significantly reducing dust mites and create a pleasant environment. This comfort and energy savings come with a substantial initial investment. However, if you live in a cold climate, you’ll recapture the additional costs in energy savings if you plan on living in your home for an extended period of time.
