How does radiant heating work?
We have several heat-delivery system options, allowing you to choose the right one for your home.
Radiant Floor Installation
Warm water circulates through the flexible tubing that can be installed underneath almost any type of flooring material—wood, tile, and even carpet.
Tubing and heat emission plates can also be attached to ceiling joists or sheetrock so that the ceiling radiates heat just like radiant floor heating.
Radiant ceiling heat is perfect for additions, upper floor heating, and remodeling projects.
Panel radiators combine visuals and science to deliver heat in a modern and attractive presentation with incredible comfort at a reasonable price.
As they do not blow air or stir up dust, panel radiators offer a clean solution and operate nearly silently.
Both Buderus and Runtal offer a variety of panel-style radiators for your home or business.
Baseboards provide space heating in both residential and commercial applications.
The baseboard is an inconspicuous and effective option that disperses heat both horizontally and vertically.
A baseboard panel does not blow air or stir up dust and its 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 mustiness. Each towel rack acts as a radiator and is an adjustable source of heat for the room.
Their low profile fits minimal space requirements (a depth of 4”) and they coordinate easily with any bathroom décor.
Cast Iron Radiators
Cast-iron radiators supply a continuous flow of heat and are suitable for both residential and commercial use.
Radiant heat combined with convected heat creates a warm, comfortable environment. It shields outside walls and windows to stop cold air at the source.
After the boiler has run its full cycle, the radiators continue to emit gentle heat. The end result is a cozy room with less than a two-degree temperature variance from floor to ceiling.
