We are receiving an ever increasing number in inquiries regarding the installation of tankless water heaters and radiant floor heating. There are a number of reasons why and we hope to fully explain them below.
Conventionally radiant floor heating was done with a boiler which is large and very expensive. Today’s technology has brought us tankless water heaters which are small enough to hang on the wall yet more powerful than ever.
Benefits of using a Tankless for Radiant Floor Heating
- A Tankless is cheaper to buy
- Space saving size
- Powerful enough to provide heating as well as domestic hot water needs
- Built in circulation pump
- A single system can heat homes up to 3000sq feet
- High efficiency systems (98%)
Why is radiant floor heating so nice?
Having your floors heated provides a completely different feel and comfort level within your home. Have you ever unknowingly walked by something hot and felt that faint sensation of heat but not know where it’s coming from. Well radiant floors are similar in a sense, and heat is released evenly throughout your home.
Radiant floor heating is much more efficient than forced air. The floor has a much greater thermal mass and thus releases the heat slowly and evenly when heated radiantly. A forced air furnace indirectly tries to heat your home by heating the air. This hot air rises and in fact works to heat your roof.
Radiant floors can now be installed under tiles, hardwood, and even laminate. The tubing is pre-made and carries a long guarantee (depends on brand). Let us come out and give you a free quote to install radiant floor heating in your home.
