The days are becoming shorter and the trees are boasting rich colors in many parts of the country, which means Fall is officially here. The weather is getting cooler and it’s time to fire up your radiant heating system and ensure it’s ready for winter. The daily comfort of walking on warm floors has returned once again.
Infloor radiant heating systems have the benefit of being low maintenance. However, these quiet, invisible, energy-efficient systems require some minor attention to ensure they are working properly before the cold weather arrives.
Fall Tips for Radiant Heating Systems
•Activate the system by turning on the thermostat and/or setting it to heating mode
•For the initial start up, set the thermostat above room temperature for 15-20 minutes, until you feel the heat beneath your feet
•A warm floor tells you the system is good to go – reset the thermostat to your desired temperature
•If the system is unresponsive, contact a HVAC or mechanical contractor right away
