Radiant-heated floors

Radiant-heated floors

Heating spaces using radiant energy that is emitted from a heat source. There are three types of radiant floor heat: air; electrical; and hot water (hydronic).

air

A system in which air is the heat-carrying medium.

electrical

A system that consists of electric cables built into the floor, usually made of concrete.

hydronic

A popular and cost-effective choice that pumps heated water from a boiler through tubing underneath the floor. In some systems, the temperature in each room is controlled by regulating the flow of hot water through each tubing loop.
