Be it via in-floor radiant tubing or hydronic panel radiators, radiant heating provides the quiet and efficient warmth of heat that radiates.
Hydronic heating is a system that uses heated water to transfer heat. A boiler heats the water that is circulated through wall-mounted panel radiators or towel warmers to heat your living space. Radiant heating is hydronic heating that is in or under the floor. We use PEX tubing for consistent quality installations. Outperforming copper, PEX tubing has been used in Europe for the last 20 years. It is installed on the subfloor and encased in Gypcrete, a lightweight concrete that is ideal for heat transfer. For a plywood sub floor, we use a product called Rau-Panel, a plywood and aluminum tubing panel that installs on top of the sub floor and below the finished floor. Existing floors can have radiant installed in the joist bays under the floor. Radiant can be installed in almost any application.
Advances in the technology of radiant heating have led to it becoming the most desirable heating system available for fine homes and buildings. We use Triangle Tube and Viessmann Boilers to provide the finest in quality and efficiency as the ideal heat source for the most comfortable heating system in the world.
Ask us about the latest in energy-efficient cooling from Mitsubishi Electric. The City Multi Solution offers quiet, energy-efficient, zoneable cooling for your home without any ducting. Design your system with zones to meet your cooling needs specific to the rooms in your home.
With the added benefit of being “architecturally non-intrusive”, radiant heating can be custom designed to meet your needs with zoning and thermostatic controls providing for a more energy-efficient system. Radiant heating provides consistent uniform heat and a comfortable living environment even at lower thermostat settings. Gone are the noisy forced air heating fans that continuously cycle on and off, inefficiently circulating unhealthy, dust-filled air. The circulating pump used in radiant heating systems requires less energy to run than a forced air blower.
