What Is a Radiant Floor Heating System?
Unlike “forced air” heating systems (furnaces, heat pumps, etc.), radiant heating systems are installed as a series of hot water-filled pipes under the floor. Heat from the water moves upward, warming the floor and evenly distributing the heat all around the room without the dust and noise associated with other heating systems. Radiant heating is commonly installed in kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, and anywhere else where you want more comfort.
What Are the Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating?
- Flexibility– whether you want supplemental floor warming for just few rooms in your home or you want to heat your whole home, every radiant floor heating system can be fully customized to fit your home, regardless of the shape or size. Radiant heating systems can be installed under any flooring surface, including marble, slate, carpet, hardwood, and tile.
- Quiet operation – unlike noisy forced air heating systems, radiant heating operates silently and discreetly. It requires no heating vents or ducts and does not use a furnace or boiler. In fact, the only component of your radiant floor heating system that you’ll see is the compact control box, which can be installed on the wall of your garage or utility room.
- Ease of installation– while radiant floor heating can be installed under existing floors, it’s most easily laid before the floor goes down. No floor buildup is necessary, so no additional construction costs are incurred when installing radiant heating in an addition, and the heating elements can be installed between floor joists to heat an existing floor or room.
- Safety– radiant heating is so safe that anything touching the heating elements—nails, water, even your hand—won’t damage the system or cause you any harm! Best of all, since the pipes are completely hidden from view under the floor, they are almost inaccessible, lowering the risk further.
- Reliability – radiant floor heating systems are designed to last for up to 30 years, but the simplicity of the system and the durability of the materials means they can likely last over 100 years! Best of all, since there are no moving parts, radiant floor heating systems require almost no maintenance.
- Efficiency– forced air heating heats up the air to way above the temperature you set the thermostat to account for heat losses as it moves through your home. Radiant floor heating minimizes heat losses, meaning you can set your thermostat lower and still feel just as comfortable.

Fast and Friendly Service
When you call for a plumber, you’re looking for more than plumbing services—you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing the plumber you hired is trustworthy and polite. In addition to being background checked and drug tested, all of the technicians at R.V. Carey’s are friendly and courteous and can answer any questions you may have regarding your plumbing system.
Time and Materials
Many plumbers charge a flat rate for each job, regardless of how long it takes. We prefer to charge based on time and materials—here’s why. First, no two plumbing jobs are the same. Even a seemingly simple leak repair can vastly differ from another leak repair! Since a job may take longer for one person than another, a flat fee may lead you to overpay for your service. Next, we feel we can provide a better service by encouraging our technicians to work carefully instead of rushing between jobs. By charging time and materials, we’re able to ensure that you get the highest quality of service possible while still sticking to your budget.
