In a radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through flexible plastic tubing called Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) that is located underneath or within the floors. The PEX tubing carries the warm water into specific rooms or “zones” to effectively heat people and objects in the room.
The other components in a radiant heating system include a heat source, pumps, and controls. The heat source in a radiant floor heating system is typically a boiler or a hot-water heater.
And because a radiant floor heating system is designed in zones, you can adjust temperatures for each room, depending on its use. This makes the system even more energy efficient because unoccupied rooms can be set to a lower temperature than rooms with greater use.
We are proud to carry Uponor radiant heating systems.
