OVER 100 PAGES FOR DESIGNING AND INSTALLING RADIANT FLOOR HEAT, SEE INDEX Over one hundred pages of practical information about installing and designing radiant floor heat. I built this web site in 1995; it is designed and maintained to help the average home owner realize how affordable and how easy a radiant heating system is to install. In the past thirty plus years I have installed hundreds of radiant heating systems and have shipped several thousand radiant heating packages for the home owner to install, and now design several hundred radiant systems each year. This site is dedicated to the advancement of affordable radiant floor heating. There is a very large gap between the theoretical information furnished by the manufacturers of heating equipment and the information needed by the person actually installing the system. Many tradesmen do not have the experience required to design, install and troubleshoot radiant heating systems. Plus the fact that many people are promoting their products with little regard to fact. Most plumbers have plumbed hundreds of homes but few have installed successful radiant heating systems. They have served several years apprenticeship for plumbing but are relying on the tubing manufacturer or wholesaler to give them information for installing. My hope is that you can use the information on the web site to help you design and install your radiant heating system, thousands of people around the world have.
Radiant floor heat is the most comfortable and efficient heating system available, if properly
designed and with good instructions it is the simplest and most affordable system you can install.
A well designed radiant system with a 96% efficient condensing heater, stainless steel indirect water heater, Pex tubing, brass manifolds, thermostats and all necessary equipment to install it will normally cost less than $3.00 per Sq. Ft., less than $2.00 for a slab on grade. The larger the home the less the cost of equipment per Sq. Ft. A 5,000 Sq. Ft home will cost less than $2.00 per Sq. Ft. even using the very best equipment. A small addition between 400 to 800 Sq. Ft. normally costs about $400.00 to $800.00 using your present water heater. Water heaters start at less than $700.00 for an 87% efficient wall hung modulating combination heater.
I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO FIND HELP TO MANUFACTURE THESE PRODUCTS.
I ALSO BELIEVE GOD HAS SHOWN ME THIS ECONOMY WILL CRASH SOON.
