What Is Radiant Floor Heating?
There are other ways to heat a home besides a central heating system (like a furnace). Installed under the floor, radiant heating systems can be used to heat individual rooms or your entire home.
The Arctic Air Conditioning team has years of experience installing and servicing radiant heaters, and we’ve yet to find a better brand than Uponor, a top manufacturer in both the U.S. and Europe.

How Does Radiant Heating Work?
Radiant heating can be used to heat individual rooms in your home with a series of tubes that hold hot water. This water radiates heat through the house from the floor up—meaning you get to keep the heat where you actually are.
The water in radiant heating systems has the capacity to transport energy 3,500 times more readily than air, so it can heat your home using less energy than a forced air system. Radiant heating systems also work in zones, allowing different areas of a home to be heated at different temperatures. This means that rooms that are typically chilly, such as bathrooms, basements, and entryways, can get more heat when needed. At the same time, rooms with less traffic, such as a den or formal dining room, can be set to a lower thermostat setting, making the system even more energy-efficient.
