In-floor radiant heating boasts versatility and design freedom unlike forced air heating. Any flooring surface can be heated by radiant, providing invisible comfort virtually anywhere, including outdoor areas and poolside. The students of FINS Swim Instruction’s new facility in Houston, TX will get to experience that comfort while learning to swim. The newest location features radiant heating to help keep students comfortable in and out of the pool and changing areas. “I’d heard about radiant heating a long time ago, and I thought it would be a big benefit to what we do,” said Liam Goudeket, aquatics director for FINS. “We… READ MORE
Ever wondered how tubing, fittings, and manifolds are manufactured for in-floor heating systems? Thanks to the Science Channel you can view the entire process. The show “How It’s Made” covered this topic in detail, including how the components are used in a radiant heating system. Very cool! Check it out below.
The advent of electronically commutated motors (ECMs) and sophisticated zoning controls are shaping the radiant market as the general public continues to learn of its benefits and applications, which span walls, ceilings, and cooling applications.

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
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.
The concept of “radiant floor heating” or under-floor heating has been used for centuries. It can be traced back to the Romans who used a hypocaust, which was a system that heated homes with hot air under the floors. Under-floor radiant heating also has a long history throughout Asia.
We are looking forward to being a part of the 2017 AHR Expo being held in Las Vegas at the Convention Center from January 30 – February 1, 2017. We invite you to stop by the Infloor exhibit booth, which will be located in the North Hall (Booth #N11810), where we will be talking radiant heating and about the many great products and applications we provide, and the systems we design.
Infloor President, Michael Willburn, recently talked with Nadia Askar from Plumbing & Mechanical Magazine about the benefits of PERT Tubing, which is one of our newest product, called InfloorPERT.
