How does radiant heating work?

There are several delivery system options so you can choose the one right for your home.

Seattle Radiant Floor Installation
The systems circulate warm water through flexible tubing that can be installed underneath virtually any type of flooring material—wood, tile, even carpet.

Radiant ceiling heat is perfect for remodeling projects, additions and for heating the upper floors of your home.

Tubing and heat emission plates are attached to ceiling joists or sheetrock so the ceiling radiates heat to people and objects just like radiant floor heat.

Panel Radiators
Panel radiators combine art and science to deliver a modern, attractive heat with incredible comfort at a reasonable price.

Panel radiators offers a clean solution to heating problems as it does not blow air or stir up dust and the operation is virtually silent.

Both Buderus and Runtal offers a variety of panel-style radiators for your home or business.

Baseboard Heaters
Baseboards provide space heating in both residential and commercial applications.

The baseboard is inconspicuous, but an effective distributor of heat by disbursing heat, both horizontally and vertically.

A baseboard panel does not blow air or stir up dust and their operation is virtually silent.

Heated Towel Bars
Make getting out of the shower more comfortable with attractive heated towel bars.

They keep your bathroom dry and free of mildew, germs and musty smells. Each towel rack acts as a radiator-an adjustable source of heat for the room.

Their low profile fits minimal space requirements (depth 4”) and they coordinate easily with any bathroom décor.

Cast Iron Radiators
Cast-iron radiators are suitable for both residential and commercial use. Cast-iron radiators supply a continuous flow of heat.

The radiant heat combined with convected heat creates a warm comfortable environment. It shields outside walls and windows to stop cold air from infiltrating-right where it starts.

After the boiler has run full cycle, the hot water in the radiator sections continues to emit gentle heat. The end result is a cozy room with less than a two-degree temperature variance from floor to ceiling.
