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.

Steve Marovitz is the ultimate professional. You can rely on Zeek Plumbing for fast service at fair prices. He has helped us with various projects including a major kitchen reno and bathroom reno that included running new propane lines, plumbing lines, new sinks and faucets and replacing all the applicances. All their staff are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. They are my "go to" plumbing company. I don't need to call anyone else!

Tim from Zeek plumbing was fantastic! I had a leak in my basement and called Zeek and Tim came over the same day. He was courteous, neat and very professional. I will be sure to call them again should the need arise. I would highly recommend Tim and Zeek plumbing.

Needed rush service today and Zeek was able to deliver. Bill and Rich both got to the root of our leak and were able to fix it. Great service with great guys!!!

Zeek plumbing was great to work with when we were redoing our half bath. They actually rescued us from another plumber who left us mid-job. They were honest about when they would be able to come and arrived on time. They were very respectful towards me and checked in with me along the way about the progression of the job. They installed a sink and toilet and when we realized the toilet did’t have a seat, they went out and got one and came right back. They aren’t cheap but they do a really good job. They even came back a third time the same day when I called to tell them that the sink looked slightly crooked and they fixed it right away. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
Carol L.
Excellent service! Had a problem with shower drain. Technician came and resolved within an hour, also tested for leaks. Courteous, respectful, normal, and offered decent pricing quotes on toilet installation. Local business that cares about quality of work and happy customers. Will definitely be using them in the future.

Angel & Oliver came yesterday to fix a clogged sink drain. They were so considerate of my napping 4-year-old grandson that the slept through their entire visit. They took care of the job quickly (and quietly), and worked extremely cleanly. I was quite impressed with their professionalism, their friendliness, and their consideration about nap-time. I highly recommend them.

I have used Zeek plumbing for over 15 years for all my plumbing needs. For my primary residence and rental properties. Most recently for a broken hot water heater, which they had replaced in the same day. Their fast, friendly and sense of humor is a pure pleasure to work with. On the rare occasion that they can't come on the day I call, I would prefer to wait for them as I know they will always do the job right! You would be lucky to have them in your home!
Amy M.
Big ups to Zeek Plumbing. Just had a terrific first class experience with one of Zeek’s highly knowledgeable and professional Tech’s Tim. I Was having issues with my hot water heater lighting. Tim quickly identified the problem and swiftly made the repairs, and all this on a late Saturday afternoon none the less. Other highly rated plumbing companies that advertise emergency 24 hour service wouldn’t even give me a call back, I would like to thank them for not returning my calls and sending my business to Zeek. I will be calling them for all future needs, Thanks!
