Frequently Asked Questions

When you have questions, ask a plumber! Browse some commonly asked questions here or send us your plumbing-related question. We will reply with an answer promptly.

How Does Radiant Floor Heating Work?

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.

What are the Main Types of Radiant Floor Heating?

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.

What are the Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating?

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.

What is Involved in a Radiant Floor Heating Installation?

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.

What Does Radiant Floor Heating Cost to Operate?

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.

These guys are a dream. I wish all contractors worked like them. They've done a few well pump projects for us and most recently ran the connection from a new deep well to our water pump, which required coordination with a well driller and concrete subcontractors.They bent over backwards to coordinate with the others on the project to make sure costs didn't blow up and the project was done as quickly as possible. They were awesome about reaching to tell me where things stood with the project before I'd even call for an update. They know their craft and do an excellent job explaining the problem, the possible solutions, and answering questions from people like me who don't generally know anything about plumbing.Huge thanks to Zack (owner) and Gary for always exceeding our expectations. Don't bother calling anyone else - these are the guys you want.

We recently had PPH do a major update in our home (water heater, water softener, iron filter, reverse osmosis, new hose bib & installed a toilet). Zack was very knowledgeable and was able to address our very hard iron rich well water. After updating 30 year old mechanicals, our water is iron free and drinkable. I cannot recommend these folks enough. They are prompt, professional and stand behind their work. Look no further, this is your next plumber.

We called because our drains were backed up and we were not able to use water in the house at all or we had water coming up from the main drain. They showed up quickly and had it all done and taken care of in under an hour! The owner is also a super helpful guy and he came out and got our water heater working for us early in the morning when no one else was available!

I rarely write a service review but feel compelled. Friday afternoon around 1 I called because my water heater was out. By 4:30 Logan had found and retrieved the last water heater in stock in the area ( after much searching ) AND installed it! Friendly, efficient, professional, and SO HELPFUL! Thank you.

Late Friday night we discovered a problem with the drain in the only shower in our house. We tried to clear it ourselves and used liquid drain cleaners to no avail. We knew with the weekend coming up we'd have little luck of getting a plumber out to help us. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating Saturday morning and they were on site within 3 hours. The drain was cleared shortly thereafter and the experienced crew person explained why it had happened. When the bill came, we were pleasantly surprised at the price. A good value from a very responsive team. Highly recommended.

We are new to the Plymouth area and had a sewer back up in our house we had only owned 1 week. We called and were told someone would be there in the afternoon. Then we were called and told around noon. Then we were called and told someone would be there in a half hour. Thanks so much for rushing someone over to remedy our issue. Great communication!!!
