Floor Warming Systems – For New Custom Homes
Many of our clients have a requirement for radiant floor warming systems. Quantum Energy Solutions can design and install these systems as part of an integrated heating plan that uses both forced air and floor warming in combination. This provides an excellent comfort level and high energy efficiency within the residence.
As part of the design we may recommend either a gas fired boiler or a geothermal heat pump as the heat source depending on the client’s preference and overall requirements.
Basements are the most common area of the home to add floor warming. The work begins by laying down a plastic vapour barrier material and insulating the area with high quality R11 insulation. Then we begin laying down the PEX tubing to form loops or circuits. Once our work is done the concrete slab is poured over the assembly to encase the pipes in the basement floor.
We use a modified construction method for ground floor and upper level areas that require warming but the overall result is the same – warm, comfortable floors. Click on the link below to learn more about how you can incorporate radiant floor warming into your new home plans.
Later we will return to the home to install the heating equipment. Once the heating equipment is installed we assemble the manifold to complete the hookup. With a custom designed system you can have the option of having multiple temperature zones within the residence each with separate thermostats controlling one area of the home.
Unlike forced air systems, once completed and commissioned the floor warming system can be used prior to occupancy for construction heating. This can reduce the construction costs associated with using portable natural gas or propane fired construction heaters. By comparison it is not recommended to use any forced air system for construction heating prior to occupancy due to the risk of accumulating dust and debris within the newly fabricated ductwork system.
Our integrated approach offers an unparalleled level of design sophistication and quality at a surprisingly affordable price.
Quantum Energy Solutions has many years of experience designing and installing beautiful hydronic radiant floor heating systems in the GTA and surrounding area. Our team can efficiently install everything from straight forward basement systems to more extensive systems that require heating of selected areas of the upper levels of a home.
For each new home we will design a customized floor warming system. We then coordinate our group of contractors to complete a high quality installation of the system.
