Experience Toasty Toes Year-Round With In-Floor Radiant Heating


Unlike forced air heating systems, like furnaces, radiant heaters do not heat air to distribute throughout a home. Instead, they apply heat directly to floor or walls, and that heat then radiates out into the living space. There are two main types of radiant heat systems: a hydronic heating system, which circulates water heated by a boiler throughout the house via a system of tubing, or an electric system, which uses electric cables to generate heat. Both of these systems have very few moving parts to break down, and you won’t have to worry about indoor air quality or energy efficiency issues due to leaky ductwork.

In-Floor Radiant Heating Advantages


There is nothing quite like radiant floor heating. It has been used for 1000’s of years! Radiant floor heating provides homeowners unsurpassed comfort and unmatched energy efficiency, and has become the single fastest growing segment in the heating industry. When you install a radiant heating system, the entire floor’s surface area essentially becomes a low temperature radiator. People and objects making contact with the floor are warmed directly by these in-floor heating systems. In addition, the floor acts as a radiator by warming all the surfaces in that room, which eliminates roughly 80% of a room's heat loss.

The following are some of the many benefits of radiant floor heating:


  • Comfort: Radiant floor heat concentrates the heat near the floor to warm your family where you live versus the air above you.
  • Efficiency: Radiant floor heating efficiently delivers heat allowing lower temperature settings that provide 20-40% energy savings over forced air systems.
  • Air Quality: Because radiant floor heating does not rely on circulating air, dust particles do not readily spread throughout the house.
  • Noise: Radiant floor heating is virtually silent!
  • Space & Energy Efficiency: Radiant heating systems are built under the floor, in contrast to bulky radiators or baseboard heating systems. Our professional installers will install and fine-tune your new heating system to operate at maximum efficiency in delivering a higher standard of comfort and energy savings.

Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating in Calgary


This water-based system of radiant floor heating uses piping that’s laid underneath your flooring, which safely circulates hot water from a residential boiler throughout a specified area. Once water begins to cool it returns to the boiler where it’s reheated and sent back out to warm your space.

The piping used is leak-resistant, non-toxic, and very durable. This type of radiant floor heating system uses a closed loop which means water is reused over and over again. The various components of the system are pumps, hot water heaters, and other controls. Most radiant floor heating solutions are covered under a 25-year warranty and typically last at least 50 years with regular use.
