Radiant Floor Heating

Brazed plate heat exchangers provide you with a simple way of supplying warm water to your hydronic radiant floor heating system. With the cost of electricity and gas constantly on the rise, heating your home can be a very expensive proposition. In addition to the expense of such heating methods, the need for vents can make placing furniture tricky, ruining the aesthetic look of a room's arrangement. And health-wise, forced air systems that blow air around in your home also blow around dust, odors and allergens.

Radiant floor heating offers an alternative method to heating your home that takes care of all these problems at once.

Why should you choose hydronic radiant floor heating?

Tired of cold feet or cold drafty rooms? We are all familiar with inefficiencies of central forced heating systems. Hydronic radiant floor heating offers true thermal comfort while consuming less energy. Instead of simply maintaining interior temperatures within a certain range, radiant heating reduces the loss of body heat by warming the interior surfaces of floors, walls, ceilings, windows and doors. The overall reduction in lower energy consumption is due to several things:

  • Reduction in room temperature stratification: Radiant floor heating eliminates the familiar but uncomfortable situation of warm air rising to the ceiling while cool air stays at the floor level.
  • Furniture placement: Radiant floor heating systems and piping system that supplies the warm water are easily concealed and routed throughout the building. Place your furniture anyway you want and preserve aesthetics of rooms without compromising thermal comfort.
  • Easily Zoned: Radiant Floor heating gives you control over the temperature of each room. Find the perfect temperature for each room, and lower your heating bills.
  • No Air Motion: In addition to distributing dust, odors and airborne viruses throughout the building, forced air systems pressurize rooms increasing air leakage and wasting energy. In radiant floor heating systems, air motion is virtually undetectable.
  • Noise Reduction: Unlike a central forced air system, radiant floor heating systems are extremely quiet. They eliminate expansion noise, sheet metal vibration or velocity noises caused by air motion.
  • Increases Boiler Efficiency: Since your comfort can be maintained at a much lower temperature, the heating load is much lighter than it is in a central forced air system. This should reduce the load on your boiler system increasing its life span.
  • Adaptable: Low temperature heat from solar collectors, geothermal heat pumps, or waste heat recovery systems can often be utilized.

Brazed heat exchangers for radiant floor heating allow you to heat water for the radiant floor loop indirectly from a central boiler or hot water heater.

Advantages of brazed plate heat exchangers for radiant floor heating:

  • Brazed heat exchangers are compact and lightweight. The smaller footprint makes it easier to be installed in places where space is limited.
  • They have a high turbulent flow, which reduces deposit build-up and maintenance.
  • Available in plate configurations and chevron patterns to suit your needs.
  • The brazed heat exchanger is ideal for hydronic systems like swimming pools, spas, radiant floor heating, domestic hot water and snow and ice melting.

Experience the comfort and warmth of high efficiency radiant floor heating systems. Radiant floor heating is perfect to heat various types of floors, including wood floors and tile. Hydronic radiant floor heating is an energy efficient method of heating your home by applying heat underneath or within the floor.
