IN FLOOR BOILERS
'In floor or radiant heating' - there are a number of advantages to in floor heating. One is working with physics, since the heat starts on the floor and rises naturally. Your feet are warm and it is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because it eliminates duct losses. Liquid-based heat systems also don't blow dust around and if installed and used properly can use little electricity. These systems can also use a large option of energy sources, such as, natural gas, oil, propane, wood fire, solar or combination units.
Regular home maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance in your home comfort equipment. Pre-season maintenance is ideal. It can help to avoid a system failure in extreme weather conditions, when you need it most, as well as keeping your energy bill in a more comfortable zone.
Ideally, service is best done in the fall and spring, when all of your equipment can be tested.
