Install a hydronic radiant floor heating unit and enjoy consistent warmth spreading to every room in the house. Radiant floor heating fills a variety of different applications and gives homeowners a number of unique advantages. This distinct system offers complete, consistent, and comfortable home heating.
Pex-Al-Pex tubing consists of an aluminum tube laminated between two layers of polyethylene. The unique construction combines the best of both metal and plastic!
- 20-30% More efficiency than forced air heating
- 100% Oxygen barrier (prevents internal corrosion of boiler)
- Remarkably flexible, yet rigid for ease of handling
- Retains desired shape for easy installation
- Kink-resistant and never springs back
- Superior heat transfer vs. plastic pex tubing
- Allergen & dust free for a healthy invironment
- Maintenance free
It is the most energy efficient heating system. This is due to the system circulating warm water through Pex-Al-Pex tubing located beneath the floor to radiate heat upward. With a forced air furnace, heat gets trapped at the ceiling while a radiant floor system keeps heat where it’s needed the most. The air in a room that is heated by a radiant floor system is warmer at 18 inches from the floor than at the ceiling. Pex-Al-Pex hydronic heating warms the floor and interior surfaces in the room for an even heat distribution.
Savings over forced air can be over 30%. This is partially due to the fact that the heat stays closer to the floor and less heat is lost through the ceiling. Plus, many people set their thermostats 6-8 degrees cooler and still feel warm
The aluminum lining in the Pex-Al-Pex is an oxygen barrier which prevents rust and corrosion of the boiler, expansion tank, pumps, etc…
Yes, Pex-Al-Pex is kink resistant and remarkably flexible yet rigid for ease of handling. When Pex-Al-Pex is rolled out, it keeps its desired shape and never springs back. This is a BIG advantage when you are laying it out because it can be rolled out by one person and no special tools are needed.
Pex-Al-Pex tubing has a superior heat transfer, especially vs. plastic PEX tubing… approximately 1/3 better.
Pex-Al-Pex radiant floor heating provides a healthy, clean and quiet system without fans to distribute dust and allergens into the air.
