Radiant Floor Heating Services

Radiant heating in your home serves as a supplemental source of warmth for your home.

Radiant Floors Keep Feet Warm

Radiant floor heating has the power to change the feel of your home. Floor heating is efficient, quiet, and doesn’t force air through ductwork stirring up allergens or other dust. Flotechs Plumbing & Heating is licensed to install radiant floor heating throughout Westchester County. Once the heating lines are installed within your flooring, your family can enjoy the warmth that emanates from below. Radiant heat warms everything it touches in the room, so while the air temperature remains the same, the space instantly becomes cozier.

How Radiant Floors Work

Radiant floor heating has come a long way over the past few decades. Technology now allows cross-linked polyethylene tubing to serve as the heating source, eliminating materials that corrode beneath your flooring. Installing radiant heat flooring means the heat in your home is constant, unlike forced-air heating that can create ups and downs with the temperature in your home.

The heat in radiant flooring is produced by hot-water tubes or electric wires. The heated flooring creates a constant, cost-effective warmth and can be installed under most types of finished floors but are typically not a good fit for carpeted rooms because the carpet padding can throttle the heat. The Flotechs team can install or repair your radiant flooring to ensure this efficient heating choice for your home continues to work for years to come.

Types of Radiant Floor Heat

Flotechs is skilled in installing and repairing the two most common types of radiant floor heat: hydronic and electric.

If you want to install radiant heat throughout your entire home, hydronic heat is likely the best fit. A radiant heat boiler is installed and responsible for heating the water that runs throughout the tubing beneath the floor. The water is heated to 100 to 120 degrees. The tubing that hosts the water can be installed in several different ways. Our technicians can survey your home, provide options, and help guide you to the right installation decision. Some options include having the tubing installed in snap-in grids or grooved panels, attached to aluminum strips or laid in poured concrete.

Electric radiant heat is typically used in small spaces to help keep electric costs under control. This heating source is usually installed in single bedrooms, bathrooms, or home additions for added warmth. A thermostat controls the electric heat to help control energy costs. Installing the electric cables is a straightforward process that calls for the cables to be pre-attached to mats to lay over a subfloor or built into the floor.

Outdoor Radiant Flooring

For those who prefer not to shovel snow or chip away at ice, Flotechs offers radiant flooring which can be installed under your driveway or patio. It’s more heavy duty material and will surely use more energy to get going, but it makes shoveling a thing of the past. Many customers choose to set elderly family members up with external radiant flooring; especially if the caretaker lives far away and can not assist with the shoveling of the property.

Cost of Radiant Floors

Installation costs for radiant floors will depend on a number of factors including, the size of the space to be heated, the type of heat, and how much construction must be performed to place the radiant heat beneath your floors. The Flotechs team has the advanced equipment and experience to help you decide on the best options for your needs and budget.

FAQs

What is a radiant heat system?
A radiant heating system is a hydronic system laid below a floor to create heat for a living space, driveway, walkway or patio. These systems are regulated with floor and wall sensors to detect the temps in the air and on the floor. The boiler is what makes the water hot for the radiant system, but has a device called a mixing valve to lower the temp before entering the radiant heating system.
Can I install radiant heat on my driveway or patio?
Yes, radiant heating can be installed for a driveway or a patio. This will keep snow from accumulating in the area with the radiant installed. But n order for it to be installed an existing driveway or patio would need to be dug up or removed.
Can we add radiant heating to an existing system?
Yes, radiant can be installed to an existing system. But only on hot water boiler or steam boiler/system that has been setup with the right devices to serve as a closed loop system. Most boiler over 10yrs old should not be considered for
this conversion.
