As Canadians, we’re supposed to embrace winter. While there’s a lot to look forward to (holidays, hockey, first snowfall), there’s one thing that no looks forward to…cold floors.
HAMCO has the solution! Radiant In-Floor Heating.
Also known as hydronic heating, this heating system is made possible by a boiler that distributes hot water through tubing laid beneath your floor.
This can provide your home with higher efficiency (lower bills), better air quality and increased comfort levels at lower temperatures. Since it is set-up beneath your floor, it can be more expensive upfront, but you will reap the rewards for years to come.
Radiant systems produce heat throughout the room from the ground up, also warming up objects through contact. This means that objects like chairs, couches, and beds will be more comfortable and consistent in temperature. Think about seat warmers in cars, just sitting on a warm object can make a significant difference in your comfort level.
These systems are also beneficial in the long-term as they require relatively low maintenance. You likely only have to inspect it once per year to look out for leaks or other concerns.
One more thing to keep in mind – radiant in-floor heating can be convenient if you’re already undergoing renovations in your home and are planning to replace flooring.
