Geothermal Heat Pumps & Radiant Floor Heating
Geothermal heat pumps and radiant flooring make a great combination, especially at the relatively low temperatures that radiant requires. As a whole-home heating system, we choose “Warmboard”as the premier radiant floor heating solution, but we can install many top quality radiant flooring brands such as “Uponor” and “Caleffi.” However, you do not need a geothermal system installed to have the benefit of radiant heat flooring. We can install radiant flooring without the use of a geothermal heating and cooling system.
Radiant Floor Installation Services
Radiant floor heating systems eliminate the use of forced air to heat your home. Instead, they radiate heat directly through the furniture and your feet through a series of warming coils placed beneath the floorboards of your home. They’re extremely efficient and can be a great asset to the right household.
If you are thinking about a new radiant floor heating system, there are several factors you’ll need to consider and some of those are listed below:
- The location, size, and layout of your home
- The direction your home faces
- Number of doors and windows will also play a role in choosing the right radiant floor system
We can handle any job, from entire heating system installations to installations for home additions. Call us right now for a free estimate!

Even if we didn’t install the radiant floor heating system in your home we will service and repair it! Our trained technicians can take over all the maintenance tasks that require professional service, such as tune ups and repairs. We can repair all types of radiant floor systems, no matter how big it is or what type of flooring you have.
New to Radiant Flooring? How Does Radiant Floor Heating Work?
In a radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through flexible plastic tubing called PEX that is located underneath or within the floors. (PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene.) The PEX tubing carries the warm water into specific rooms or “zones” to effectively heat people and objects in every corner of the room.
In addition to the PEX tubing, the other main components in a radiant heating system include a heat source, pumps, manifolds and controls. The heat source in a hydronic radiant floor heating system is typically a boiler or a hot-water heater. However, other heat sources can be used, including highly energy-efficient sources such as geothermal and solar.
And because a radiant floor heating system is designed in zones, you have the luxury of changing temperatures for each room, depending on its use. This makes the system even more energy efficient because unoccupied or lower-use rooms (such as a guest bedroom or formal dining room) can be set to a lower temperature than rooms with greater use (like a kitchen, bathroom or basement).
