In Floor Heating Overview

What is In Floor Heating?

As Calgary’s Heating experts for almost 50 years, we have a lot of experience when it comes to in floor heating installations.

In floor heating is a type of heating system that is installed in the floor. This type of heating is more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly than other types of heating systems.

In floor heating has many benefits that make it a great choice for your Calgary home. It can be installed in any type of building, including new construction and existing homes. 

Hydronic in-floor heating is a type of radiant heating that uses water to heat a space. The water is circulated through a series of pipes, and the heat is transferred to the floor via a series of coils. The coils are usually made of an oxygen barrier piping, hydronic in-floor heating is an efficient way to heat a space because it uses the natural conductivity of water to transfer heat.

The water circulated through the system is heated by a boiler, and the heat is then distributed evenly throughout the space. Because the heat is distributed evenly, hydronic in-floor heating is ideal for spaces that are difficult to heat with conventional systems, such as basements or sunrooms.

Because of the even heat distributed by in-floor-heating, it makes this a product a great option as opposed to relying on a furnace where heat is usually delivered by network of vents.

Hydronic heating gives a higher level of comfort, reducing cold spots in your home.

Bruce C.

I cannot say enough good things about the professionalism, value and quality of the service provided.

The second call was a few days later to fix my radiant heating system. I called based on the great experience I had two days before. A different repair person this time, but equally polite, professional and capable. They diagnosed the problem, gave a quote and with my okay proceeded. They retrieved the required parts and had the system working within a few hours of my call.

Excellent, trustworthy, professional and polite.
