“Electric cable systems work as well or better than a hydronic system when remodeling projects come into play, such as when you are replacing the tile in an existing bathroom on a concrete slab, where there is no room for the mechanical system required for a hydronic system or the floor height to install a typical hydronic radiant floor system,” said Michael Willburn. “Other examples might be where the project requires more of a cooling load than heating and the customer only wants warm floors in specific areas of their house.”
“I became involved with hydronics in 1995, when I went to work for my father’s company selling Infloor Heating Systems as a manufacturer’s representative,” said Michael Willburn, president, Infloor Heating Systems, Buena Vista, Colorado. “I also worked for a wholesale supply company that was heavily involved with hydronic heating. I performed heat-loss calculations on radiant projects and designed the hydronic heating systems for both radiant applications and hydronic baseboard applications. There’s a large demand for hydronic products in our market.
We are thrilled to be included in Plumber Magazine’s recent article highlighting hydronic radiant heating and boiler products. Infloor’s Radiant Trak was featured, among other great industry products from Bosch Thermotechnology, Taco, Watson McDaniel Co., and more.
