Radiant Floor Warming and Snow Melting Systems

Radiant Information

Elegant floor coverings are the perfect way to add beauty and style to your new home or remodeling project. However, often times wood, stone, marble and tile only appear inviting but are uncomfortably cold. Radiant floor warming systems add comfortable warmth to your home from the floor up. The luxury of radiant floor warming systems provide quiet, constant, uniform heat under cold surfaces leaving them comfortable to the touch and adding unseen elegance to your home.

If you are building a new home or remodeling any of your floors, now is the time to add this wonderful luxury. Our product was designed specifically to be installed in a cementitous materials under tiled floors with no extra floor buildup or structural support needed. Comfort Radiant can custom design a system that will fit your individual project.

Danfoss Radiant products can be used in conjunction with the primary heat source to achieve a warm, inviting floor or as the primary source for heat. Small to large areas can be warmed very easily with our Danfoss LX or TX cable systems.

Danfoss offers the best 20-year, non-prorated warranty that includes 5x the cost of the element to assist in paying for the repair or replacement of the element if it is found to be defective. No other manufacturer back their element up with this essential warranty.

What is Radiant Heating?

Radiant heat warms the closest and coldest mass which then radiates heat throughout that space evenly. Radiant heat will comfortably heat the floors, tables and people.

What Does Radiant Heat Feel Like?

When you stroll along the beach on a sunny day and feel the warm sand underneath your feet, you're feeling radiant heat. Hold a mug that was warmed because of the hot drink inside, then you're feeling radiant heat. When you stand outside on a cold day and your feet get cold, they aren't absorbing the cold, your feet are radiating your heat into the ground. We are natural radiant heat producers. Objects absorb radiant heat until they are the same temperature as the heat source, then the heat slowly escapes to the closest, colder masses.

How Radiant Heat Works

With line voltage electric systems, current is sent through the dual conductor heating element creating a warm, even radiant heat. The radiant heat then passes through the floor and continues to warm other objects in the room: tables, chairs, walls and you. Radiant heat will warm the room and its objects from the floor up towards the ceiling. It gives you just a natural feeling of warmth throughout. No more dry, dusty forced air sent through ducts. No more baseboard heaters that send the warmth to the ceiling before they warm you. The 7 day programmable thermostat will maintain the tempertaure. Most important with an electric system, the system is off when the desired temperature is reached.

With hydronic (water in tubes) radiant, a boiler is needed to keep the water hot and circulating through the winter. When the thermostat calls for heat, valves open to let the waiting hot water pass. This can account for as many as 2000 on/off cycles from the boiler through the winter wasting a considerable amount of energy. As the water passes through the tubing lines, the heat is radiated into the surrounding concrete. As the water circulates further away from the furnace, it gets cooler causing cooler areas of the floor. Conversely, electric radiant heat is on when you want it and off when you don't. Further, it is the same temperature throughout the floor at all times.

An electric radiant heating system will give you the most consistent floor temperature compared to any other heating system. It is 100% efficient because all of the heat that is produced is utilized by you.
