Why choose Advanced HVAC
for all your Radiant Floor Heating needs?
Who doesn’t love the idea of radiant floor heating in their home? Heated flooring is not only a great home investment, it’s a great feeling to wake up to each morning. Especially, when the temperatures outside decline, many of us start wishing our home had such a feature.
Advanced HVAC is a proud installer of Uponor radiant floor heating. Uponor was one of the very first companies to bring radiant floors to Canada. Presently, Uponor radiant floor heating systems offer many custom solutions with different methods of installation. Your home doesn’t need to be a new construction. Radiant floors can be added to existing older homes, often without removing your current floors.
How does a radiant floor heating system work?
An Uponor radiant floor heating system works by circulating warm water through flexible, resilient tubing that is inserted underneath the floor. This type of heating is comparable to warming yourself in the sun, since it warms people and objects in contact with the floor, as opposed to raising the temperature of the air.
Forced Air Heating Vs. Radiant Floor Heating
Uponor radiant floor heating can be used by itself or in combination with a forced-air heating system. It also works well under any kind of floor layer, whether your home has carpet, wood, slate, tile, stone, laminate, or even concrete. Since it allocates heat consistently across each room, you don’t have to turn up the thermostat to reach the coldest corners of your home. Uponor radiant floor heating is absolutely perfect for homes with vaulted ceilings or enormous windows, which could let heat escape.
Another aspect that makes radiant floor heating systems so cost effective is that it has the ability to carry energy 3,500 times more than air, so it can heat using less energy than a traditional forced-air heating system. This promises superior comfort at a lower thermostat temperature setting, which will save you money when it comes to your energy bills. Surprisingly, most people are more comfortable with radiant floor heating at a lower thermostat setting than with forced-air heating at a higher thermostat setting.
