There are distinct advantages to radiant heating systems design over traditional forced air systems. Radiant heat is a more natural, quiet, dust-free, and comfortable heat. Radiant systems heat a structure by circulating warm water through flexible PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) tubing located underneath or within the floor. A radiant system can heat rooms independently or at different temperatures. The ability to only heat the occupied rooms offers a degree of efficiency not found with forced air systems. A hydronic heating system can provide greater comfort using less energy than forced air because water has the capacity to transport energy 3,500 times greater than air.
Hydronic radiant heating systems use embedded PEX tubing or surface mounted panels that are designed to absorb and transfer heat to a space, 50% to 80% of which is radiant energy. Radiant systems use the structure and the surfaces of an area to transfer energy. In radiant heating systems, the energy moves towards the cooled surface from the warmer area. HeatPly has developed radiant systems that are both simple and reliable. Installations are designed to be efficient for both installation and cost without compromising design intent and flooring requirements.
