FAQs for Installing Radiant Floor Heating 

FAQs for Installing Radiant Floor Heating Having radiant floor heating installed means that you can count on your floors being warm all the time. This heating system, which is installed below your floors, takes advantage of the fact that heat rises. Before choosing this type of heating for your Middletown home, it’s important to understand how it’s installed.

What Is Your Home’s Age?

If you’re having a brand new home built, adding radiant floor heating is more straightforward than having it put into an existing home. Installers can place this system below your floors as your new home is being constructed. If you want this type of heating added to an existing home, keep in mind that you’ll need to have a lot of remodeling done in order to accommodate it. This can make the installation process more of a challenge.

What Type of Floors Do You Have?

The kind of flooring you have in your home is an important factor to take into consideration for radiant floor heating installation. This type of heating system works more effectively when it’s installed under floors that are able to conduct heat easily. For example, electric radiant floor systems generally work better with wood, ceramic, and laminate floors, while hydronic radiant floor systems typically work better with concrete floors.

Which Part of Your Home Is It Going In?

Consider which part of your home you plan on having a radiant floor system installed. Depending on your preferences and other factors, such as the type of flooring you have, you can have it installed in one room only, such as your bedroom, kitchen, living room, or bathroom. You can also have these systems installed under larger areas of your home if you have an open floor plan.
