Radiant Floor Heating Systems in Milpitas

Installing High-Efficiency Heating Systems in the Bay Area for 30+ Years

Have you ever walked into a deceptively warm and comfortable room, only to sit on a chair and find it absolutely freezing? One of the disadvantages of traditional convection heating is that the heaters only warm up the air in the room, not the actual objects themselves. The balmy air tricks your skin into thinking that the entire environment is comfortable, until the moment you actually touch another object, from the freezing leather couch in your living room to the icy marble floor.

Introducing Radiant Floor Heating Systems

Fortunately, there is a solution to the above-mentioned problem that can keep your toes warm even in the coldest of winters – a solution that was actually invented thousands of years ago. Around the first century, ancient Roman civilians kept their homes warm by directing hot natural gas through tunnels and conduits under marble floors. This was particularly convenient in Italian towns like Pompeii and Stromboli, where natural springs and gas sources were plentiful.

Modern technology has allowed us to adopt this concept through the innovation of radiant heat, which allows heated water to flow through tubes beneath the floor. This system has all the benefits of the Roman invention, without the threat of a volcanic explosion or underground flood!

If you’re looking for radiant heating services in Milpitas, our heating specialists at Comfort Energy, Inc. can immediately install this contemporary innovation that keeps you warm all winter.

Types of Radiant Heating Systems

Two main types of radiant heating are commonly used today. Each type serves a distinct environment for different structural purposes. Our technicians can help you decide which better serves the particular layout of your property.

  • Hydronic or water radiant heating – This type of heater best suits residential homes. It is extremely efficient in energy usage as well as cost-effective for those living in areas with colder climates. Insulated tubes carry water from the boiler by the use of zoning valves, and the temperature of this water is regulated by a thermostat.
  • Electric radiant heating – To install this system, engineers will either layout systems of electrical cables in a network that spreads across the floor or use plastic mats that specially conduct electricity beneath the floors tiles. This option is not recommended for residential homes due to its high cost but works very well for commercial properties, or in residences with very thick concrete floors that can store heat for ten hours.

Benefits of a Radiant Heating System

There are several advantages of radiant heating that make it an efficient, healthier option than other types of heating.

  • Direct heat across the floor, ensuring maximum warmth
  • Connective warmth from floors to surrounding objects, including couches and chairs
  • Limited energy losses from gaps in ducts or vents
  • Zero allergen distribution, unlike forced air systems, thus helping air quality for people susceptible to skin allergies or breathing issues
  • Decreased electricity usage in exchange for more natural sources, including solar or water energy
