Radiant Heat

Types of Radiant Heat

There are three types of radiant heat – radiant air floors, electric radiant floors, and hot water (hydronic) radiant floors. The Hydronic (liquid) systems are the most popular and cost-effective radiant heating systems.

What is Hydronic Radiant Heating System?

It is an efficient home heating system that basically turns entire floors into radiators. This system warms the space without the negative effects of forced air heat (i.e. allergen distribution, noise from fans).

How does it work?

This system pumps heated water from a boiler through tubing laid in a pattern under the floor (see the picture on the left).

What are the advantages of Hydronic Radiant Heat?

  • It eliminates the discomfort of cold floors and reduces your energy bill at the same time. This system saves about 25% more than a forced air system.
  • The upstairs and downstairs will heat evenly and not waste energy. Heat does not rise, but hot air does. With forced air, the hot air quickly rises to the ceiling.
  • There are no design limitations, so furniture placement  is not an issue in regard to registers, vents or wall radiators.
  • Hydronic heat is cleaner than a forced air system that uses duct work, which eventually becomes dirty, spewing dust and allergens.
  • The pex tubing is specially treated and carries the hot water for the hydronic system. This plastic tubing, unlike copper pipes, will not corrode. It can be installed in long runs with just a couple of fittings, reducing the risk of leaks.

Costs?

The cost of a hydronic radiant flooring system can typically be about 50% more than a forced air system. Although it is costly, the benefits are great and will save you more money every year for the life of your home.

We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.
