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.

  • Can be used by itself or in combination with a forced-air heating system
  • Also works well under any kind of floor layer, whether your home has carpet, wood, slate, tile, stone, laminate, or even concrete
  • You don’t have to turn up the thermostat to reach the coldest corners of your home

An Uponor radiant floor heating system is far more energy efficient than traditional radiators and space heaters. This is because the system only needs to run at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees celsius to properly heat a room. Radiators and space heaters, in comparison, need to run at 65 to 75 degrees celsius to generate the same amount of heat in a room. This translates to much lower energy bills.

With a radiant floor heating system, you won’t have to worry about the risk of burns by brushing up against those traditional appliances either. Naturally, it also reduces the risk of fire in your home. By removing these old appliances, you will also have more floor space in your home to add to your home decor! Safety, comfort and efficiency are the largest benefits you get with a radiant floor heating system. If you’re ready to make the switch, then contact us today!
