Radiant Heating FAQ
Radiant floor heating is a very safe way to control temperature in a room! The floor is heated to a temperature that is comfortable for someone who is barefoot and since there are no exposed pipes or venting, it is a very safe system.
Anything that is approved by the manufacturer to be used with radiant flooring. This can include carpet, hard wood, vinyl or laminate as long as the manufacturer has approved this product for installation on top of radiant flooring. Ceramic flooring and stone tend to be the best flooring for radiant as they tend to transfer heat better than most other flooring solutions.
The answer to this question can very much depend on the fuel source, parameters of the home and how the installation was completed. That being said, most radiant floor systems are very efficient and provide an amazingly comfortable room while running at lower temperatures than conventional systems. These lower operating temperatures combined with the performance of radiant heat VS forced air can make running an in floor system more cost effective.
A fully electric in floor system will heat up quicker than a hydronic system. That being said, after the hydronic in floor system reaches a set temperature it will maintain that very efficiently. Furthermore, the type of insulation and flooring material may affect the time it takes to heat the room.
Yes but we always caution customers about having an alternative source of heat for certain situations such as the shoulder seasons. Sometimes in Ottawa we have cold evenings in the spring and fall but warm days. During this season it is nice to have another source of heat such as a heat pump. The reason for this is that it may take a while for the in floor heating to reach a comfortable temperature and longer for this heat to dissipate. If this occurs during the day time it can cause a slight overheating effect. We have clients that use only radiant flooring for heat and have programmed controllers to avoid these issues. We also have clients that utilize heat pumps in tandem with the heated floors for the ultimate in heating/ cooling.
