Radiant Floor Heat

Radiant Floor Heat

A radiant floor heating system heats your body and objects, not the air. The warmth stays down around the floor where it is needed most.

It is not wasted at the ceiling or lost to the outdoors whenever a door or window is opened. With radiant floor heating, a living space is heated by circulating warm water through tubing in the floor. The heat in these tubes radiates to the floor surface and rises evenly throughout the room above.
