Maintaining a gentle, comfortable warm temperature throughout your building is easy with in-floor heating. Calgary residents can enjoy a heat that’s evenly distributed throughout a room by a system that’s quiet, clean, long-lasting, economical, and great for the environment. Often called “perfect heat” or “radiant floor heating,” in-floor heating is a time-tested method dating back centuries and a heating system of choice for more and more for everyone from architects to homeowners.
Nowadays, the system consists of inexpensive thermoplastic tubing that helps heat a room gradually and consistently. At Commercial Mechanical Services, our experienced technicians help keep your boiler-controlled in-floor heating in Calgary working at full-capacity with professional repairs and maintenance.
How In-Floor Heating Works
In-floor heating works by moving heated water through a series of tubes located beneath a floor. The water is heated by boilers and distributed throughout the tubes, heating the floor’s surface and gently raising the temperature throughout the whole room. Boilers for in-floor heating are usually found in basements, but can be placed in other rooms. In-floor heating can work beneath a various floor types including hardwood, tile, and concrete. When using in-floor heating, objects are gently warmed throughout the room thus creating an environment in which occupants feel most comfortable at a temperature that is often 3 to 5 degrees lower than what other heating methods have to produce.
Why In-Floor Heating Is Great for Your Home
There are many advantages to having an in-floor heating system installed in your home:
Quiet and clean system – Usually the gas or oil burner on your boiler is the only noise this type of system will make. The series of tubes located under your floor make no sound so the whole system is virtually silent.
Durable and long-lasting – In-floor heating is great for heating garage facilities or industrial buildings because it can be used with concrete floors. This makes the heating system durable to a lot of interior foot traffic.
Reduction of fuel costs – In-floor heating can maintain a consistent level of comfort at temperatures lower than other heating methods thus reducing the amount of full needed to heat your home, business, or warehouse.
Space saving – In-floor heating uses the floor to emit its heat, eliminating the need for ductwork and other equipment. In fact all you need is a boiler which can be located in a basement or utility room – out of sight and out of mind.
