RADIANT HEATING

OUR CUSTOMERS TRUST US

There is nothing like radiant heating under the floorboards to keep you toasty during the winter months. While most people think of underfloor heating as a luxury, what they often don’t realize is that it can actually save money in the long run. Radiant heating is a much more energy-efficient way of heating a room than forced air and other heating options. By circulating the hot water that’s already in your water heater, hydronic underfloor heating can reduce your bills while keeping you warm all winter long. Speak to our experts to find out how radiant floor heating can warm up your home today. Contact Us For Expert, Local & Trusted Plumbing Services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Radiant Floor Heating Systems?

Radiant floor heating systems harness the power of electricity or heated water to keep your floors constantly warm. Water is heated by your home’s hot water heater and is then circulated through a system of piping underneath your floors. In an electrical system, the heat probes are placed underneath the floor’s surface to distribute heat. With either system, heat is evenly spread throughout the floor and your home, eliminating hot and cold spots from inefficient heating units.

Plymouth Plumbing and Heating provides quality and professional radiant floor heating services and installation for your home. Radiant heating not only provides a comfortable floor that keeps feet warm, but the heat evenly radiates upward, keeping your entire home warm and comfortable. Radiant flooring systems work with all types of floor coverings.

How Difficult is a Radiant Floor Heating Installation?

Electrical radiant floor heating installation is simple and can be accomplished by removing and replacing the existing flooring over the radiant heat probes. This is best accomplished during a renovation project that replaces old flooring. Water-based radiant flooring systems are normally installed during new construction due to the piping and system that must be installed, and to make necessary adjustments for room height for the somewhat taller flooring that is required.

You should allow for several days for radiant floor heating installations, especially when choosing a water-based system. Electrical systems will also require a leveler compound underneath the heating system and floor, and this must be allowed to cure and harden appropriately.

What if I Need Repairs to a Radiant Floors Heating Installation?

Typically, radiant floor heating installations need little to no maintenance, and carry a guarantee of around 30 years. There are no moving parts and wear on the system is almost nonexistent. Plymouth Plumbing and Heating offers radiant floor heating service when a problem does arise. Our plumbers can replace faulty components or solve related electrical issues.

Is Radiant Floor Heating Worth It?

Sure, it may be extra cozy to have warm feet everywhere you step in your home, but is radiant floor heating worth it? All the extra work of installation and cost? Radiant floor heating is an investment for the long term and not a simple convenience. Homeowners who choose a radiant floor heating installation in either new construction or an existing home are leveraging their initial investment for a better long-term return. While radiant floor heating installations can cost between $20 and $200 per square foot, homeowners can see between a 15% and 30% return on heating and cooling costs over time.

Radiant floor heating systems are more efficient than wall-mounted, vent-based, or free-standing heating options. Plus, they save room on walls and floors, and remove the dusty air circulation vents that can contribute to sickness and disease. 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.

Where Can I Find a Radiant Floor Heating Design Guide?

The question is really, “Should I install my own radiant heating system with a DIY radiant floor heating design guide?” For most DIYers with only rudimentary experience with home repair projects, the answer is ‘NO.’

Designing and installing your own radiant floor heating system from a DIY radiant floor heating design guide involves much more than the average home handyman can typically handle. Heating zones, separate thermostats, electrical codes and wiring, plumbing (for water-based systems), raising flooring in existing homes, insulation, and more involve complex operations.

Plymouth Plumbing and Heating can work with you to design and install a quality, professional, and economical radiant floor heating system. Our plumbers and technicians can ensure that all codes are met and your system is safely and correctly installed for many years of use. Downloading a radiant floor heating design guide from the Internet will not prepare you for a safe, workable, and quality installation.

For those with advanced handyman skills or construction experience who wish to install their own radiant floor heating system, Plymouth Plumbing and Heating can provide you with a design guide that will help you throughout the process, as well as tips and advice to get the job done right. Plus, we are always available to provide installation assistance when required.

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!!!

When I hear Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, I think Family! They are always there for you and have your back when you need them. I was doing a remodel and lets just say it was bigger than a bread box....and Plymouth Plumbing and Heating was there every step of the way! Jamey was the mastermind in the trenches getting things done, but the whole team was there supporting me. When there was a "bump" in the remodel I could call or text and knew it would be handled. Never had to worry when will it get done. Boom Done!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for ALL your plumbing needs!

We live near Lake Michigan in an older home without a basement and for many years we have experienced problems of water accumulating in the crawlspace area under our main floor. We’ve asked several contractors and plumbers in our area to assess the situation, but none of them have offered any viable solutions. I decided to widen my search for answers and was drawn to the Plymouth Plumbing website. I called them and was able to set up an appointment a couple of days later for a free estimate. About 30 minutes before the plumber was due to arrive, I received a call from his office letting me know that he was running about 45 minutes late. The receptionist asked if I would be willing to wait or prefer to reschedule. I suggested 4 pm that afternoon and he arrived right on time. Jack Dellger is the third generation owner of a family business and has had a lot of experience with these water-related issues. He listened carefully to my questions, checked out the crawlspace, and then walked around the perimeter of the house pointing out where and how water could seep under the house when it rains. He gave me several suggestions about how to change the slope of the land so rain water would drain away from the house; where to seal up the wide cracks between our cement front stoop and the base of the adjacent siding; how to improve on the existing gutters, and where we needed to add additional ones. When I asked him for some recommendations of whom he trusted to do those jobs, he not only provided me with names, but offered to call them for me and see how soon they would be available to come and give us an estimate for the necessary improvements. Although he declined my offer to pay him for his consultation, he said that the next time we had any plumbing problems, he hoped we would give him a call. I enjoyed meeting Jack and appreciated the way he clearly explained everything. We will definitely contact Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for any plumbing issues that we may encounter in the future.

Updated Review: we got the bill and it was about $200 more than we were anticipating. I get that it was a weekend, but almost $600 to clean a main drain? Not happy about that! I wonder how much of that includes the 20 minutes the plumber spent messing around with the auger that was put away wrong from the last service, his words, while he was cursing the last person who used it, under his breath, 🙄Original review: We experienced an unexpected plumbing issue arise during the 4th of July weekend. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, as well as about 10 other companies, on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. They WERE THE ONLY ONE to call us back and send a plumber out! Not all websites that say "24/7 emergency calls" actually mean it, because no one else was able to send a guy out on a Sunday.Thank you for your prompt response. We will call you again and would recommend you to others for a prompt and efficent experience.
