While radiant heat is not a very popular type of heating in the USA, it is one that can keep you comfortable, dry, and save you money in the winter. This type of heating system is one that our HVAC team is more than happy to work with. Here are some of the services that we offer to meet your radiant heating needs.
The most obvious service that we offer is the installation of new radiant heat systems. This will require access to the underneath of your floors for the duration of our project and will generally take a few days. However, the end result is a system that needs very little maintenance, is able to provide a more natural type of heat, and will save you money over the course of a few years.
This system also has the benefit of eliminating the “cold spots” that are apparent in homes with forced heating methods. This is because the heat rises from the floor, expanding to fill the entire space. This makes it more comfortable for anyone living or working in the heated rooms.
While there is very little repair work needed in a radiant system, it is still a good idea to have regularly scheduled maintenance to make sure that your heating system will last for many years. This process only takes a few hours, can be scheduled at any time of the day, and should generally be done before the onset of cold weather.
The heart of a radiant heating system is the boiler, as this is where the water that makes up the heating action is stored. The boiler can break down for any number of reasons, with everything from hard water to the first time turning it on in a season being at fault. Our team is more than happy to fix any problems that arise with your boiler and to ensure that they don’t spread to the other parts of your radiant heating system.
Inspections and Pressure Checks
One of the most important parts of your radiant heating system is the pressure that moves the water through the pipes under your floor. However, this can be the most dangerous part of your heating system as well. It is simple for our team to check and adjust the pressure within your system, making sure that it is safe and functioning well. This will keep you safe, save you money, and will actually help ensure that there is no damage to the system over time.
Pipe Repair or Replacement
The pipes that make up your system may sustain damage or begin to leak over time. Generally it is simple to replace these pipes and make sure that the rest of the system is unaffected. Even if the pipes are undamaged, a leak can lead to pressure issues. Generally we can have most leaks or damaged pipes repaired or replaced within an hour or two, ensuring that you are not without heat for very long.
