Infloor Stainless Steel Manifold a Featured Product in Contracting Business Magazine

We are thrilled to see our new product, Infloor Stainless Steel Manifolds, featured among other great products in Contracting Business Magazine. Infloor pre-assembled Stainless Steel manifolds are used to distribute heat-transfer fluid throughout a hydronic radiant heating system. They can be used in traditional radiator systems, and innovative under-floor radiant systems. Made of stainless steel, they are particularly suitable for heating systems, allowing all of the project parameters to be controlled, providing the perfect balance of each outlet. This avoids any unnecessary waste and ensures an elevated level of thermal comfort.

Must-Have Elements for Building a Sustainable New Home

When someone builds a home for you, you have the opportunity to make it as sustainable, eco-friendly and energy-efficient as possible. Not only are sustainable homes more cost-effective over the long term, they have a smaller environmental impact, and can be more appealing to home-buyers when you’re ready to sell and move. In fact, more than half of Realtors report consumers are interested in sustainability, according to the National Association of Realtors’ REALTORS and Sustainability report. What’s more, 70 percent say a home’s efficient use of energy is important to potential buyers.

Breathe Easier: Ways to Improve your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

Help children avoid asthma attacks by improving home indoor air quality. More than 6 million American children – nearly 9 percent of all kids in the U.S. – have asthma, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year, asthma attacks send more than a million people to emergency rooms, including approximately 24,000 children younger than 15, the CDC reports. Yet health experts agree many of those asthma attacks could be avoided through a range of tactics, including by improving air quality inside homes.

Design Freedom of Infloor Stainless Steel Manifolds

Infloor Heating Systems® continues to take steps to make radiant heating simple for builders, architects, installers, and property owners, by reducing the complexity of the systems while increasing quality. And now the heart of the systems just got better with Infloor’s new stainless steel manifolds offering unparalleled design freedom and easy installation.

Infloor Installation Captured By Drone

For the first time, an Infloor Heating System has been photographed from above by a drone. The aerial view provides a unique look at an Infloor hydronic heating system and in great detail. We just wrapped up this hydronic heating project in Buena Vista, CO where a homeowner had an Infloor Heating System installed in the concrete floor of their new garage. We used 3/8″ BPEX tubing that is 6″ on center with 200′ loops. The images provide a good look at the clean and organized installation of this system, that will provide invisible, energy-efficient comfort for decades to come. Have a look… READ MORE

How to Determine the Correct Tube Size and Spacing for Your Project

Tubing is an essential part of every hydronic radiant heating system. Like veins, it transports warm fluid, and the heat output, throughout your floors, turning them into comfortable, warm surfaces. We offer the best PEX and PERT tubing for our hydronic systems, available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 3/8″ to 1″.  These tubes provide excellent performance in radiant applications and provide the system designer with the greatest options for component selection. With five sizes available, how do you know which one is best for your project? These general rules can help.

Therma-Floor (Gypcrete) Installation Method

One of our most common and effective installation applications is Therma-Floor, commonly known as a gypcrete. The gypsum underlayment is designed to pour over tubing, encasing the tubes in crack resistant, noncombustible gypsum, acting as the thermal mass. Therma-Floor systems can be used in many different situations, because it can be installed on top of subfloors and concrete slabs, whether existing or new. Its special formula resists breakdown up to 150ºF (66ºC). And because it’s poured only 1-1/4″ to 1-1/2″ (32 mm to 35 mm) thick, the heating system is more responsive and more comfortable. As a “green” building material,… READ MORE
