Uponor radiant floor heating systems circulate warm water through crosslinked polyethylene (PEX-a) tubing embedded under the floor for the most superior comfort with the greatest energy efficiency and indoor air quality available. With a radiant system, the warmth from the floor radiates up to warm people and objects, so environments are more comfortable even at a lower thermostat setting when compared with forced-air systems.
Radiant works with all types of flooring — tile, wood, slate, linoleum — even concrete, making design possibilities endless. And because the tubing is hidden under the floor, home or building décor is not hindered due to floor vents, baseboard heaters and the like. Radiant is also highly beneficial for people with allergies because it doesn’t circulate dirt, dust or other indoor pollutants like a forced-air system does.
