Radiant floor heating is ideal for any building where comfortable, even temperature is desired.
For at least 8 months of the year, heat is required in Canadian buildings in order to maintain a comfortable environment. When planning for a new heating system, radiant floor heating should always be considered as a heating alternative. It is suitable for any building small or large, including residential, industrial and institutional buildings. And, radiant floor heating can act as the primary heating system for the entire building or simply as supplemental heating to provide added comfort to certain areas within the dwelling.
Here a few of the many applications for which radiant floor heating is suited:
houses, apartments, condos, basements, design-build custom homes, cottages
retail shops, offices, car dealerships, arenas, atriums, churches, hotels, sport clubs, airports
schools, retirement homes, hospitals, prisons, dormitories
shops, garages, warehouses, manufacturing plants, agricultural barns, freezers, greenhouses, as a thermal brake for offices above open parking lots.
