Ever wake up in the morning and step on to cold tile in your bare feet? Naturally we invest in thick slippers or socks to keep from feeling that cold sensation on our feet. Why not eliminate the slippers and socks and step on to tiles that are actually warm. M&M Heating & Cooling’s radiant floor heating hydronic installations Toronto makes that possible. We can install it in your home with ease and less expense. Radiant floor heating has been around for a very long time. The idea is simple: the heat is radiated from the floor to your feet, essentially creating warmth all over the house. Most common are hydronic systems in Toronto which heat your entire home. They produce steady heat supply, and require serpentine tubing, water heaters or boilers. Although Hydronic systems are extremely efficient and effective they are a bit more complicated to install. For a simple, less expensive alternative for small spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens radiant-floor heating is best.
How the System Works:
The radiant floor heating system is made up of thin heating cables, imagine an electric blanket. The installation is done under ceramic tile. The cables are very thin and don’t raise the height of the flooring much making them ideal when doing a remodel. Best places to install them are: bathrooms and kitchens or anywhere there is ceramic tile in your house. The radiant floor heating system is controlled by its own thermostat and will not replace your main heating unit. They generally take up 15 to 20 amp circuit to power the system. The radiant floor heating system consumes almost the same amount of power as three 100W light bulbs.
With the use of radiant floor heating systems heat loss is reduced by 10 to 20 percent. The thermostat for your home can typically be lowered by 6 to 8 degrees, saving energy consumption. The heat load of radiant floor heating systems is decreased by 25 to 40 percent.
These radiant systems absorb warmth from the heat source and they maintain more consistent temperatures wherever installed. When the target temperature on hold is reached on the thermostat, the temperatures stay consistently warm. The changes in temperature on the walls are less, reducing air infiltration.
Radiant floor heating Toronto systems are installed below the sub floor or underneath concrete slab providing quiet, clean, and eco-friendly heat, with several other benefits:
