Radiant floor heating systems are installed underneath the floor covering to supply heat directly to the floor of your home. These systems take their name from the method of heat transfer — heat radiates from the system components through the surface and into the air via infrared radiation. This is similar to how your kitchen stove heats cookware.
Plymouth Plumbing & Heating is a radiant floor heating contractor that installs two main types of radiant floor heating. A very popular option uses water from your hot water heater, called a hydronic system; the other type of system uses electric cables. Both systems use the hydronic tubing or electric cables to evenly spread heat throughout the floor.
Radiant floor heating systems are more efficient than wall-mounted, vent-based, or free-standing heating options. They save space on walls and floors, and provide even warmth throughout the room. Choosing an electric or water-based system will also factor into how much ROI you will enjoy, as well as the size of your home.
Plus, there are no vents to spread allergens through the air or uneven temperatures that leave too much heat on one side of the room and cold areas in another. Radiant floor heating is energy efficient and can use your home’s existing components to provide warmth.
A radiant floor heating installation can be performed in new construction or existing homes by an experienced radiant floor heating contractor like Plymouth Plumbing & Heating. We recommend professional installations to ensure safe and reliable installation of hydronic and electrical components. Plus, your home may need a separate electrical circuit for some radiant floor heating installations.
The radiant floor heating components are laid within the new or existing subfloor of your home. They can even be embedded within concrete. For most rooms, the components can be attached to the subflooring and positioned close to the surface of your chosen floor covering. Tile, laminate, or hardwood flooring is recommended for use over radiant floor heating.
The hydronic and/or electrical components are then connected to water and power sources and thermostats for comfortable temperature control. You can even incorporate smart thermostats for programmable or long-distance heating control from your smartphone.
Your radiant floor heating cost can be calculated by figuring the square footage of the rooms where you plan to install radiant floor heating and multiplying that by the cost of energy per kilowatt in your area. Most radiant floor heat systems use about 12 watts of energy per square foot.
For example, a room with 90 square feet multiplied by 12 watts equals 1080 watts of electricity. That is 1.08 kilowatts. If the cost of energy in your area is $2.00 per kilowatt, then the cost to heat that room would be about $3.08 per hour.
Keep in mind this is only when the system is operating. With a thermostat control to maintain a constant temperature, the system will heat the room and shut off to conserve energy. Therefore, your actual radiant floor heating cost could be lower or higher, depending on usage.
