About Radiant Floor HeatingThe concept of radiant floors goes back to Roman times and is today the most efficient and comfortable means of heating residential homes, garages, workshops, driveways and other commercial and industrial facilities. There are two types of floor heating systems – hydronic and electric. Radiant heating supplies listed in this category are for hydronic, or hot-water type heating systems utilizing PEX tubing as means for delivering hot water to the area where heat is required.
Hydronic heating systems offer numerous advantages over all other existing systems, including forced air. They are quieter, require little or no maintenance and create unparallel comfort levels while consuming less energy. Floor heating systems are compatible with nearly all types of finished flooring, including ceramic tile, stone, hardwood, laminate, engineered wood and many others.
The most common types of hydronic radiant heating systems are:
