Underfloor heating is a popular off-peak option because the system transfers consistently across the floor to reach people and objects, providing both comfort and efficiency.
Whether it is electric cable or hydronic tubing – underfloor heating offers efficient heat when installed properly and designed for the off-peak electric heating rate. In new construction projects, underfloor heating elements are buried in a sand bed beneath the concrete slab. The sand and slab serve as storage agents when warmed, emitting heat into the room. Underfloor heating can also be mounted below the floor of an existing wood construction in most cases.
Hydronic underfloor heating
Used in conjunction with an electric boiler, hydronic floor heating is a system of circulating heated water through flexible piping.
Electric cable or mats
Electric cables or mats heat up when electric current is applied. The systems are buried 8 to 12 inches deep in a bed of sand under the concrete slab, which serves as a heat storage reservoir.
An underfloor storage system can heat an entire building or may be used to supplement another heat source.
Place your furniture wherever you choose. No vents get in the way.
The system is among the most clean and quiet on the market.
Allows you to receive the off-peak heating rate, which is about half of the standard electric rate.
