Radiant In-floor Heating System

What is Radiant Heating?

Radiant heating is another term for Hydronic heating. Most people are familiar with radiators that sit along walls or below windows and fill with hot water, radiating heat into the room. Radiant heating offers a variety of other options, such as in-wall or in-floor heating, and radiant heating can use other liquids besides water, such as glycol or mineral oil.

In cities that experience harsh winters, such as the ones in Greater Toronto Area, Ontario radiant floor heating is a popular option. Not only does it evenly heat the entire room, but it also keeps people comfortable when they walk around without shoes.

Radiant heating also offers zone options so you can heat different parts of the home at different times of the day. For example, a home theater may not need to be toasty all the time, but you may want the kitchen and bathroom warm as soon as you wake up in the morning.

Benefits of In-Floor Heating

Aside from saving money on your heating bill, radiant floor heating has many other benefits. Check out some other great reasons to install in floor heating below.

  • Energy efficiency: Water is a better thermal transference medium than air, so radiant heaters are more efficient at energy use. You can expect to save money every winter season thanks to a radiant heater.
  • Even heating distribution: Forced-air heaters blow air toward the top of the room, where it takes a while for it to spread through the rest of the space. But radiant heaters distribute their heat quickly and evenly.
  • Improves indoor air quality: The lack of ductwork in a radiant heater means that it doesn’t blow around dust and other debris lodged inside the ducts. This can make significant improvements to your home’s indoor air quality.
  • Exceptional comfort: The thermal energy coming from a radiant heating system simply feels "cozier," like being warmed directly by the sun.

What can Pro Climate do?

At Pro Climate, we don’t just install radiant heating systems. We can also maintain and repair them. For example, water pipes should be flushed seasonally to prevent the buildup of sediment, which can make radiant heat less efficient. We can also repair your radiant heating system if it stops working or develops cold spots.

Whether you use radiant heating inside your home or as part of your landscaping — such as for a heated driveway or sidewalk — we can make sure the system works throughout the winter months.
