Radiant Floor Heating Systems
"Helping You Decide on the Best Radiant Floor Heating System for Your Home with a Free Quote"
Radiant floor heating is an energy efficient heating system that relies on the flow of heat that rises from the floor. The two primary kinds of radiant floor heating systems are hydronic and electric.
The Hydronic System
The hydronic system is the favorite for most people. It is also the most efficient of the radiant heating systems. Warm water travels from a boiler through tubes buried under the floor. Hydronic systems can use several types of energy sources, including gas or oil fueled boilers, and solar water heaters.
The Electric System
The Electric radiant heating systems usually consist of electric cables built into the floor. Some systems have electrically conductive mats that fasten to tiles under the floor.

Radiant Floor Heating Installation

It is important to hire a professional to do a radiant heat installation. Radiant floor heating installation can be tricky. Many things can go wrong, and even a small mistake may end up costing you. Leaks and freezing are also potential problems. A small leak in the pipes will release the warmth. After awhile, this can make a difference and you will see larger energy bills and experience less heat. Safety tests are necessary to make sure that the water is flushed from the system with no leaks.
A radiant heat system must be installed correctly to be effective. Overall, it's best to choose a professional HVAC company such as Hyde-Whipp. We are professionals and we'll install and test the system and get it working correctly.

Radiant Heat Maintenance
"Contact us for all Your Repair & Maintenance Needs"
A radiant floor heating system generally doesn't give too much trouble and the maintenance requirements are usually simple. For example, the filter on a gas-fueled heating system should be changed every month or two during heating season, and the fan should be lubricated annually.
Most maintenance tasks involve the pumps and boilers. Generally, these pumps have a life span of about ten years, but occasionally, you might get an air lock in the water pipe or something may just wear out.
The best way to maintain a radiant heating system is to schedule regular radiant heat maintenance and check-ups, as well as an annual inspection. Call a Hyde-Whipp professional to conduct the inspection and perform tests to detect leaks.
