Radiant Floor / Panel Heat Installation

Radiant Floor & Radiant Panel Installation

CADCO Heating and Cooling, Inc. professionals provide radiant floor and radiant panel heat installation in Ashland, KY and Huntington, WV. These heating systems supply heat directly to the wall panels, ceiling or floor of a home. The mastery of radiant heat transfer is delivered from the hot surface through infrared radiation to the contents of each room they’re located in.

It is important to understand radiant floor heating is dependent on convection from radiant panels installed in flooring or siding. It harnesses the natural circulation of heat in order to safely fill a whole room accordingly.

 

Radiant In-Floor Heating

This method of warming a home has proven to be more efficient than forced air heating systems as it entirely eliminates the risk of leaks from duct work. Without duct losses, your home benefits substantially every day. The lack of ducts also means a safer option for people with allergies or respiratory issues. Without the constant circulation of air contaminants through ductwork, which is essentially a damp, dark environment which encourages the growth of mold and bacteria, radiant in-floor heating systems are the preferred choice.

These hydronic systems also use much less electricity than forced air systems. They can also use standard oil, gas or wood-fired boilers to heat the liquid transferred through embedded pipes, or solar water heaters!

Ceiling- and wall-mounted radiant panels are either heated with hot water carried through tubing or electricity. They are an excellent alternative to other modern heating systems as the radiant panels can be controlled from each room, individually, for personal comfort.

There are 4 types of floor heaters you can choose from:

  • Radiant air floors
  • Electric radiant floors – use electric cables within the floor
  • Hot water (Hydronic) radiant floors – highly cost-effective and popular radiant heating systems
  • Radiant Paneling
