Possibly the best heating system for your home is one that you never know is there. Radiant flooring systems are a highly efficient way to heat a house, increasing comfort as it reduces energy costs. People with allergies often prefer radiant heated flooring because it does not distribute allergens like forced heating systems can. At Newman Roofing & Xteriors
we install two different types of radiant heated floor systems, hydronic and electric. Hydronic radiant floor systems pump heated water from your hot water heater or your boiler through tubing laid in a pattern under the floor. In some hydronic systems, controlling the flow of hot water through each tubing loop, the system uses zoning valves or pumps and thermostats to regulate room temperatures. Electric radiant floors typically consist of electric cables built into the floor. Some systems feature mats of electrically conductive plastic mounted on the subfloor below a floor covering such as tile or marble.
